Paper Home Bloggers' Party at Quill London

Last week I was very lucky to be invited to a blogger party/workshop to celebrate the launch of Esther Thorpe's book "Paper Home", all about origami. The event was held at Quill London, a gorgeous little stationery shop (to die for!).

For the workshop part of the evening, Esther herself showed us how to make the beautiful origami on the front cover of her book, which is very appropriately called 'party diamond'.

I must admit that origami isn't really my area of expertise - the only one I'm able to make is the boat, which I reckon is one of the most basic ones - so the diamond looked quite intimidating at first. Luckily tho, in her book Esther provides very clear instructions and step-by-step pictures, and trust me, if I managed to make three almost perfect party diamonds, she did a pretty great job at explaining how to do it!

The variety of origami projects in the book is pretty broad: from dainty little stars to giant lampshades, but they all have one thing in common, which is making your home more colourful and unique. 

After the event, we even got a goodie bag with some more origami paper inside, so I'll most definitely be trying a few more of those (and I'll make sure to let you know how it goes!).

Have you ever tried origami? What's your favourite design?
