I've heard that the earrings must be facing the front when worn, but I'm
tempted to fold something like tatos that are a bit bigger than 2.5 x 2.5
cm (1 x 1 in) for the earrings. The problem is that the sides of the jaw of

I guess I found out about the exhibit too late ... I live here in Denver :-P
Anyway, just doing some searching, it looks as though the exhibit was
supposed to close in September and I don't see anything contradicting that.
As for what type of paper they were handing out, I didn't read anything
Hi all ...

Hi all. Got a question of sorts from someone the other day that I'm passing
along to you ... Maybe someone can help me answer it.

Thanks for passing this! I couldn't find it from the original posting. I

Hey there - Don't know if anyone has seen this... Not sure what they mean
about "defying the laws of origami" - they apparently have never heard of a
Hi! Just approached by - I think - a student doing a film project looking

Is it just being spelled phonetically different ways?
I am beginning to think I am the only person that has this book. I can't
find it on the internet anywhere other than a list of Japanese title and
that doesn't help.
It is a Tokomo Fuse book. ISBN 4-416-30300-9. Google translates it to
something like "Origami Small Items for Living." But that
