Junk Mail Origami

Happy Hump Day, everybody!  Keep on going, you'll make it to Friday!

Do you ever wonder what to do with all of the brochures and things that you get in the mail?  I know that I could stop signing up for things, but then I wouldn't get as many cool coupons.  Therefore, I end up with piles of paper that I use for covering the table during Baby Bear's craft projects, as packing materials, to write shopping lists on, etc.  Some of the wasted paper, especially as we get closer to the big holiday season, is really pretty.

I just can't stand to waste such attractive paper, and I absolutely adore origami as decor or for gift giving, so I turn those cute holiday brochures into paper cranes, flowers, and butterflies.  Below are some links to origami tutorials, pics of others' junk mail origami (I LOVE the elephant!), and some pics of my very own junk mail origami creations.
