Welcome back to another installment of TEACH-ME-HOW-TO-THURSDAY! You can also think of this as, the Davis County Fair doing the work so you don’t have to. :)
Did you know that one of the Living Arts entry categories is ORIGAMI?! When I was a kid, I had an origami book and I loved seeing what I could make… and laughed at what I couldn’t. Origami is a fun activity that you can do by yourself or with others. Also, in my research, I have discovered the origami can make a great gift, or give a special handmade touch to a gift. Stay tuned to see what I’m talking about…
First, the rules for origami in the fair? There are no set rules, but I would suggest making something unique, that will stand out among the paper cranes and single balloons. I found some great tutorials that are easy, but would make a great entry at the Davis County Fair!
Check out this great tutorial for an origami balloon garland. HELLO! This would be so cute at a party, or on display at the Davis County Fair. Thanks to http://www.frolic-blog.com for the great tutorial! Click HERE to make one for yourself!
Next up is origami paper boxes from Pinecone Camp! Now, don’t tell me this doesn’t make a truffle, necklace, or any other little gift even sweeter! Another fun idea… put another piece of origami inside! A frog, a shield, a flower– go ahead, SURPRISE ME! :) Click HERE to learn how to make this lovely box!
Now, how about an origami flower bouquet? Gorgeous! This as an entry at the fair would definitely make a statement, and possibly garner you a blue ribbon! SWEET! Another idea with origami flowers, is to make an origami flower lei! Oh, the possibilities are endless! Thanks to http://www.capitolromance.com for this tutorial!

Here is another hand link to LOTS of ORIGAMI TUTORIALS!
So, I think you can already tell, there is something for EVERYONE at the fair, and we are only going to dig a little deeper in the coming Thursdays. Let us know how you feel about TEACH-ME-HOW-TO-THURSDAYS and what you want to see here!
