Behold! My favorite children’s poem by Brod Bagert:
I planted bird seed in the ground
and wild weeds sprouted all around
I know it sounds a bit of absurd
But I didn’t grow a single bird.
Soooooo…I folded me some birds instead. HAH! How do you feel about that crummy birdseed!
To start, I purchased one of those mobile picture holders. Then I looked through oodles of origami bird examples. None satisfied me. Not to be stopped, I took an example from a French language website I couldn’t read, studied the pictures, made a few changes, and VOILA! I made the the first of many birdies.
I used two-sided printed paper for a more interesting effect.
I added a green, pre-made, paper ball for a pop of color to the top, and inserted a butterfly (can you spot it?) in with the birds to delight people who take the time for a closer look.
ARTitude in flight!
