Wedding cards with origami dresses

Wedding card with mini-origami dress
For some reason, I was really taken with Ann Martin's blog posting on the new Klutz book, Fashion Origami.  Although the patterned papers didn't really match my style, I could see a lot of possibilities with these origami designs.  When I didn't win the book, I literally ran to my local (online) bookstore and ordered my own copy.

I had white origami paper, and immediately thought the party dress would make a fabulous wedding dress.

These cards are the result!  Hope you enjoy the inspiration to use these great patterns in a different way.

  5. Thanks for stopping my blog and for telling me about the craft podcasts - I definitely need to check those out!

    And these cards are lovely - I especially like the folds in the paper for the dresses :)

  6. I really like the look of these cards. Who ever receives these will love it. I've made a couple of origami cards, but none turned out nearly as well as these did. Thanks for stopping by my blog as well.

    As I have seen these in person - I know how beautiful they are! I would like to point out that those flowers did not come from your stash and that I (one of your local friends) has finally looked at your blog :).
