Origami Sea Creatures

Origami Sea Creatures for Under The Sea Birthday by Crayon Box Chronicles

I love paper! Some people collect dolls, plates, coins, nope I collect paper! There’s so many neat and interesting things you can make with it! Origami is my new-found love.  Well, not new, but within the last few years! These origami sea creatures and invitations were my favorite part of his Under The Sea Birthday Party! Everything was made from paper! If I had a favorite type it would be vellum paper.  It’s so pretty and slightly transparent.  Learning all the fold was so much fun, but ouch — my fingers hurt! All the paper cuts were definitely worth it!
