    The origami thread.png

    Hello my beautiful readers,
    I hope you are safe and healthy.

    With schools and colleges shut and no more web series to grab my attention, I started my quest for some interesting quarantine hobbies. Today morning, I asked few of my community friends about their hobbies. The common responses were singing, painting, sleeping and hiking.
    Confused with what to choose, a small marble paper lying on study desk drew my attention. Suddenly I remembered my childhood Art classes wherein we were taught ORIGAMI.

    Remembering those old days where me and my friends made paper aero plane with hidden messages, filled my heart with nostalgia.

    Finally I made up my mind and chose origami. To my horror I did not have enough marble papers to work on.:(So, I decided to use a printing paper :p

    There are thousands of simple tutorials available on YouTube but I started my origami journey with something complex.​
    The following origami was done under YouTube supervision. Kindly try at your own risk :p

    A pocket mobile stand! 😁
    Its called pocket because this can be folded completely.

    Overall it took me around 30 mins to get this correct but once you get over the folds, its very easy to make.
    This is the video I took reference from. Its language is in Hindi but English subtitles are available as well.

    Browsing through YouTube I stumbled upon the tutorial of Chattering Lips. Back in school days me and my friends played a game called catch me if you can. The whole idea was one person has to control control this origami lips and another person used to throw paper balls. If the person manages to throw the paper ball into the mouth of this origami he wins. Only restriction was the mouth had to be open before another person threw the paper ball. I remember the scolding our teacher gave when the paper ball had landed on her desk :p:D
    Good old days:oops:

    [Bonus Content] I discovered this origami when I was a kid. I personally name it as flying Fish. This is weird but easy to make and fun to play:cool::p

    Origami is fun, easy and definitely keep you occupied. When boredom kicks in, origami is always a solution 😉
    So friends, I would love to see your origami works.
    Even if it is as simple as a boat or as complex as the paper stand, do share your work.
    I can't wait to see them.
    Happy making :)

    Great thread @Starcommander ,
    Good to know about your nostalgia.
    Any form of art inspires, Origami is one of them.

    paper boat & Airplanes are common form of origami.
    That flying fish is great
