Dear fellow crafters,

I would like to invite you to create a gorgeous origami mobile with me. They are beautiful gifts for young and old alike and are lots of fun to make :)
You can be as creative as you like with the composition and I am giving you plenty of ideas below.

Please bring along:

PAPER - ideally, this would be origami paper (see picture; you can buy it for example at Libro or Gersteacker; avoid washi paper - it's a little too soft), but you could also use: old magazines, (thick) newspaper, (thin) cardboard, coloured paper, music sheets ...

STRING - could be the cooking kind of string (see picture), or wool, cotton etc. or you could also experiment with thin strips of cloth for example or bendable wire ...

A STRUCTURE FOR THE MOBILE - I have used branches in my recent mobiles but again you can be as creative as you want: an old wooden spoon, a clothes hanger, an old lamp frame ...

ADDITIONAL TRINKETS - I like to add some trinkets in between or at the end of the origami. Almost anything will do here (see photo): old earrings, little bells, natural materials (feathers, nuts, cinnamon sticks...), old key chains ...

and SCISSORS, LIQUID GLUE (like UHU Alleskleber)

If you can't bring all these items, please let me know at least 5 days in advance what you are missing and I will organise some for you (I will ask you for a small fee for the material).

See you soon
Katia
