BlogAdda has in the past made me visit several blogs, sometimes for inspiration and sometimes out of admiration for the same. Because of the ‘Ready for Rewards’ activity of BlogAdda, I’d to surf through the articles of the website ‘RewardMe’ and as a result, ended up finding some pretty good articles to read through.
Going through the crafts section was a very natural move and the first place to take recourse to, for Me, given that I’m a crafts-lover. I specifically found this article on Origami to be very informative, dwelling on one of the most innovative and interesting ways to get initiated into crafts. The link to the afore-mentioned article on Origami can be found in this link: Origami. (It is recommended that one goes through the article first, before venturing ahead to my article.)
I would, however, like to go on to the extent of saying that Origami however intriguing, might also not be the correct first step towards crafts as it needs a lot of patience and genuine interest to begin and most importantly, keep up with. Often people make the very common mistake of wanting to start crafts by some so-called exotic and reputed craft and end up leaving crafts altogether getting disheartened after the initial failures. For people who want to have a proper initiation into crafts, I’d like ’em to start with simple, easy techniques where they can work with cut & glue, which technically aren’t a part of origami.
Origami is a very beautiful craft and if one gets to actually learn to master it, will never be bored when left with just a paper to play with. Though the article does give a very basic idea about Origami, enough to interest a person, the article would have been a lot more exciting if there was one example of any particular origami theme shown how to be created. That would have been an excellent end to an otherwise good article. I, personally, would have loved trying it out and showing it here.
Chastise me if you will, but being a Grammar Nazi (that’s the word for people who’ve the nose for impeccable spellings and grammars), I’d like to point out that there are one or two spelling mistakes, yes, but nevertheless, a sore sight for the eyes. I otherwise have no other objections and would very much be thankful to the writer of the article for bringing in some attention to Origami.
You’ll find similar brilliant articles on the ‘Crafts‘ section of the website RewardMe. Do have a read.
