1. Take a 6 inch square of origami paper and fold it in half to make a rectangle.

2. Fold the paper in half again to make a square and then open it back out to a rectangle.

3. Take the right edge and fold to meet the center crease. Repeat on the other side before opening both sides back out.

4. Open out the side and collapse down to make a triangle.

I love the sunny yellow origami paper. It makes me think of daffodils and spring. I'm holding out for more of the bright spring-like days I caught a glimpse of on Thursday. They can't be too far away, can they?
