Geisha Girls

I have found another use for my strips of paper and using up odd  design papers from 6 x 6 paper pads. First off though can anyone tell me where June went to? One minute its was the 3rd of the month and now it's the 30th! Don't even have the excuse of having been away on holiday either just in the garden enjoying the hot weather we have been having.  Raining today so I'm back in my craft room now  that it is cooler and determined to post at least once more before July pops up. 

I have been busy looking at origami tutorials and making lots of shapes . These are two little Geisha Girls.

Once you get the hang of the folding  they are really easy to make. 
I have  looked as lots of videos and then put my own spin on the hair styles, faces and the flap of the kimonos.
I am entering them into the following challenges:
Gem of a Challenge #13 Anything goes.
Cards 4 Galz #202 More than one fold.
Krafty Chicks #670 Anything goes.
Dragonfly Dreams # Fancy folds.
Sparkles #165 No Stamping allowed.
The Crafty Addicts #2 Anything goes.
Creative Fingers #258 Anything goes.

Gorgeous origami Geisha girls. For many years (about 20) I have also played with origami (still have some beautiful papers).
Tomorrow we will have rain since a long time.

Yes, one minute ago was the 3rd of the month and was my birthday and now June is gone! Time flies too much (and my years too). Today it's raining also here and I'm happy as we haven't had rain for a long time.
Your geisha girls are SO cute and fun, such beautiful origami project! Love the way you made the faces and the gems in the hairs! The flaps of the kimonos look great too!

Hi Mrs A,
I agree every month seems to come and go so quickly these days.
You start off at the begining and no sooner you turn arround it's theend of the month again.
Love your origami Geisha Girls they look very beautiful and the papers used on them is gorgeous.
Such a very clever way to use up snippets.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
