It's been a little while since I've done any origami and I was beginning to miss creating those cute, little paper crafts to distribute around my room, so I went online and searched for something new, and internet you did not disappoint! I found this adorable tutorial for an origami piano here and I knew it would be the perfect little craft to get stuck into!
I used a piece of writing paper from a letter set for this one as I liked the pattern and thought it would be an interesting contrast, but you can use any colour you like and they turn out brilliantly! These work great as decorations too as they stand on their own, but if you wanted to, you could leave the keys flat and stick this onto the front of a card as well.
I made the extra little music sheets from some left over scrap paper and just tucked them into the top folds, following the main photo from the original tutorial. I didn't follow any proper music sheet rules, so if there any musicians out there, please forgive me if I've made any huge mistakes - purely decorative! ^_^
I tend to end up doing these in the evenings when I'm looking for something to fill those last few hours before bedtime, and I find origami really relaxing, which is always a plus. I love how these turned out, and I'll probably make a fair few more in different colours as they're so easy and quick to make - I'm currently on the look out for some double-sided origami papers so hopefully I can find one in black and white to make a real mini piano!
Are there any brilliant and cute origami tutorials you've found that would be worth checking out?
Hope you all have a lovely Tuesday!
