The Money Tree

This was a friend’s gift to my aunt on her 50th birthday.  She said there were $5 bills in there, but I didn’t find it.

Makes me want to take up origami again, but I don’t know if I have the patience for that again, other than for a boat and a hat (which had a similar base, anyway).  I couldn’t even get halfway through the famous crane, which seems to be the graduation piece.  I like how the leaves blend in as the wings here.

When I couldn’t get the folds right, I would start all over again, but I would use the same piece of paper again.  For best results, one had to use a new sheet of paper so that the folds and angles are crisp.  Well, I didn’t want to use a new sheet, because then I would run out of the origami sheets.  See those crisp folds to make a nice fan?  Mine didn’t look like that.

That was then; I think a pack of origami sheets are much cheaper now.   Now that I’m older and wiser (ha-ha), maybe I can get my brain to follow the instructions on folding and inserting this corner to that angle or fold.

In the meantime, I’ll just enjoy looking through these.
