diy friday: magical mushrooms

Q.  What did one mushroom say to the other mushroom?

A.  You're a fun guy!  (Get it?  Fun-guy?  Fungi?)  Hahahaha!

Ok, I admit I learned that joke way back in elementary school, but I still think its cute. 

And so are these origami mushrooms!

You can make your own "fun guy" with any paper you like. 

Some origami papers work really well, but I also love the unpredictability and uniqueness of magazine ads. 

Makes the origami 'shrooms look a little... well... magical!

What you need:

Mushroomy looking paper.

What to do:

Follow one of these diagrams on origami club. Or these on  Or look around, there are so many out there to forage for! 

Warning:  Do not eat - wild mushrooms can be toxic! ;-)
