Sometimes I look down at the desk and find the most random things have been made… people ask me how I come up with these things, well I don’t know, who makes an origami cactus? Well me. 😅

The Tapered Origami Box (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHIBJMNQWko) was made specifically because the origami cactus didn’t look good in a regular masu box.

The cactus in the thumbnail is the one made with 2 sheets of paper. It works better if you use paper that has some texture. The thin crispy origami paper just slides around, I can imagine you’d need to secure them together with glue if you use that kind of paper.

The ‘pebbles’ are crumpled pieces of paper obviously.
