Easy DIY project for your home | origami book art

Did you noticed the 'comeback' of the origami book art again lately. Stylist Lotta Agaton used them in her styling work and we saw them earlier at the home of Therese Sennerholt, where Lotta did the styling. Origami isn't new of course, it has been there for ages. Sweet Paul did a project with books years ago, folding vases out of them. But I kinda like them when used in a contemporary interior or styled picture like the ones I am showing here.

Elv from the picture below told me she and her niece folded the pages of a book starting with the top and bottom of the pages and ending with folding the page in the middle of the book.? It's a nice way to decorate, to add a natural accent and to show something different to your bookcase or styled corners. Would you like to make one yourself? Facing North is also showing a nice tutorial for a different origami project.

Ik zag het al her en der voorbij komen inderdaad. Misschien leuk klusje voor in de vakantie. Alhoewel, was eigenlijk van plan weer eens te gaan lezen :)

Mooie foto's zo bij elkaar!

Zo mooi deze inspirerende plaatjes, zie ze regelmatig voorbij gaan op insta. Ook wel bijzonder dat deze DIY helemaal hip is. En idd was Suus zegt, eerst maar eens lezen in de vakantie. Eigenlijk vind ik het ook zonde. Hou van boeken. X
