Origami lampshades are done at last

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fa351d2dfd8>

After much folding - I have two lampshades.

The big yellow one is a sun (obvs!) with the planets stretching away from it (which I didn’t make). This is part of my mildly obsessive solar system theming for the kids’ bedroom.

The other is - just a lampshade.

I didn’t do the design, got it from a book which I’ll leave in the bookshelf at some stage, or else welcome to ping me to borrow it. 200gsm paper. I did the sun first, hand-scoring and folding; for the second one, I got smart and used the laser cutter to do the scoring (thanks @Kuniko for tips).

Very pretty lampshades.

They are lovely, so neat and precise. Looks good with and without the light on.

Very beautiful!
