Halloween Decorations: Good Witch

I think this is probably a good witch. She doesn't look scary, does she?
Halloween Decorations: Good Witch
I created the good witch doll with traditional kusudama pieces. I was inspired by the paper dolls from the book Creating Lovely Paper-Flower Dolls.
I folded the kusudama pieces with 8” (200 mm) and 4” (100 mm) squares of scrapbook paper.
I completed the doll with a Sets of doll head and hands and a few accessories.

Happy Halloween!

Origami Decorations: Beetle

This Beetle is so much fun to fold! As it's folded with several sheets of paper, you can combine different colors and accessories to create variations.  So here is "Lady Beetle", ready to go to a Halloween party.
Origami Decorations: Beetle
The Beetle model was created by Halle. The instructions are available in the books Origami Europe: Colour edition, and Origami Europe: Black and white edition.

I folded it with several squares and rectangles of different sizes of origami paper, ranging from 1½" to 8" (38mm to 200 mm).
