Oh my! These are almost too cute to wear. Have you ever played around with origami? Maybe as a child? If you did, and you liked it, did you ever think about wearing your creations? Julian Laboy Rodriguez did, and he shows you how in his new Interweave book, Origami Jewelry Motifs.
Even if you haven't done any origami before, don't let that stop you. All the basic folds and instructions are covered up front, and there is a nice selection of motifs included which range from easy to intermediate. The really unique part of the book is how Julian teaches you to turn your little cuties into jewelry pieces, using easy to obtain findings, some glue, and a good spray finish!
Would you like to try out some origami this spring? Here's what you need to do...please read this carefully. Leave me a comment here and include your email address. If I don't see your email address, I won't be able to contact you. No contact, no win, and I simply have to go on to the next person.

If you tweet or post on Facebook or other social spots about the contest, you can leave a second comment and be entered twice! Deadline: March 30, 2016
My niece would love doing this together. Commented earlier and forgot the "s" on the end of my email.
