I am sure that you are having your own set of challenges and fears as we ride the crazy rollercoaster caused by the Coronavirus. I hope you are doing well, and that you are healthy!
As a token of gratitude for your presence in my life, I have released an origami video tutorial to make a ladybug (Find the tutorial below). Up to now, I have only shared this model privately.
I hope you like this video, along with many others found here in Origami Spirit, and allow yourself to enjoy the calming and meditative effects that folding paper can have for all of us.
Do everything in your power to stay calm and centered. Take care of your physical and emotional wellbeing!
Stay connected with those you love.
Remember that social distance is not spiritual separation.
Let’s greet each other with prayer hands and bows rather than kisses and hugs…
…and let’s keep on folding paper.
Tips and suggestions for making the origami ladybug
- In the video, the ladybug is demonstrated using thin kami paper*, known in the U.S. as “origami paper”.
- Any other thin and crisp paper* –such as gift-wrapping paper or printed paper from old magazines, is suitable.
- For a striking effect, the colors of each side should be different.
- Bright red or yellow paper that’s black or dark on the other side is ideal.
- A good paper size, to begin with, is 6×6 inches (15×15 cm).
- The square has to be cut in half diagonally to make two triangles.
- One ladybug can be made from each triangle.
