Know How to Fold 'Em: Origami at the Library

What you're looking at is called modular origami.

At the most basic level, it's a ball within a ball within another ball. Each ball requires 38 individual folds to create.

This is just one of the examples that Jennifer and Mark Cline of the Ohio Paper Shapers (also known as the Ohio Paper Folders) brought with them when they gave a presentation on origami Monday night at Mentor Public Library's Main Branch.

Jennifer showed people how to make cups, pinwheels, bullfrogs, butterflies and cranes all from paper.

But, instead of talking about it, how about I show you the pictures?
