In my search for a video that might be considered interesting by other bored internet surfers, I asked myself, “What can I do that is remotely interesting?” The answer I got back was, “Well, I know how to fold a piece of paper into a flower!” Thus, the origami flower video was born…

After practicing twice, and recording one video with the url at the beginning missing the important “one” word, I finally got it right. With a little video editing to speed up the boring parts, I posted it to Revver.


In the first day, it shot up to the front page of Video Bomb, which is better than I can say for any of my other videos. No one thought it digg-worthy, though. Oh well.

The flower is all I know how to make, really, but I might try to learn another form and record another video. I think the concept isn’t a bad one.

By the way, have you ever tried writing upside down and backwards? It ain’t easy!

    Very nice. How about those nice little boxes made from used greeting cards?

  • Yeah. I’ve forgotten how those were made. I’m sure Grandma remembers. Maybe I can re-learn in February.

    There are all kinds of things on origami.com, though.

  • Shame I can’t get the video to play. Could be my browser settings or something. I tried the other link at digg and couldn’t see it either, but I’m sure you did a great job of making it!
