Those are beautiful, Beth. Wow.

Never mind the aesthetics, it's as if you'd conquered space.

Absolutely stunning, all of them. Do you hang them from the ceiling like stars, planets? Where do you keep them when the decoration season is over?

My sister makes thousands and thousands of cranes which she strings and sells at her shop. We learned to make those and the box with wings when we were kids. I have a photo of us at summer camp and she is carrying a paper crane as we walk. She would have the patience to make those stars!

Wonderful post! I've recently become enamored with Japanese giftwrapping videos on YouTube - so precise and beautiful. Thanks for sharing your origami and web references.

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
