I've always been fascinated by origami. I can fold a few simple things -- a fish from a dollar bill (pull its tail and the mouth opens and closes), a boat, cootie catchers... And I've also folded a few things by following step-by-steps from books. You have to wonder, whoever came up with this stuff!?!? It's amazing that someone would have the forethought/sight to visualize what a piece of paper could become if folded this way and that.
I folded this Kusudama flower by following a tutorial I came across here. It was actually very easy to do -- the toughest part was gluing the petals together!
Side note: I always smile to myself when I see fellow artists selling their wares with the disclosure "made in a pet free environment." I think there's a little more love in a piece of art when there's a cat hair or two included. [wink] Fancy had to be on my work table this morning, leaving little room for folding.
