I can make a bird that flaps its wings but that's about my lot.

I haven't tried it in years - used to love it. Perhaps I'll give it a go

I love origami...I used to do a lot as a child and rediscovered it a few years ago when desperate for something crafty to do with no space or equipment. I made an elephant last year which was a real fiddle.

This is the fat book page I made using the origami elephant. He did stand up quite jauntily on my desk for a while, but I decided to send him to a friend who is mad about elephants so turned him into this page for her. The most fiddly parts were getting the top of the elephant to sink in the middle so that he was the same from both sides and then the little folds round the trunk. You can see where they have gone a bit sideways!

I can try and find the tutorial and scan it for you if you would like Deanne. It was in the origami section of a general papercraft book.

Here's my attempts so far, I did a mini write up for 'Its a creative world'
I really enjoyed doing the spinning top and it now sits on my craft desk for when I'm thinking about what to do I just spin it lol (told you I was a numpty Julia )

I love this pocket too, I'm going to make a smaller one and use it on a scrapbook layout, I'll show once I've done it

Those are both gorgeous. I love the spinning top...so pretty and colourful. I can imagine that the pocket would be great on a scrapbook page. I will try and scan the elephant instructions this weekend Deanne...I don't think I will get the time before then. Can you pm me your e-mail address.

I love the spinning to too Deanne, well done! Great elephant too Caro, good for kids cards - I struggle for ideas for kids cards, not being a mum myself.
I downloaded a man's shirt origami off a website a couple of years ago, and find it quite good for men's cards. I'll see if I can attach a picture......
