i learnt to make an origami hummingbird almost 3 years ago. it was during one of our first dates in berlin when T took me to Yuma bar in neukölln, which served up drinks and origami lessons of a dienstag abend. aside from learning to fold a hummingbird that winter, i also became efficient at making modular origami globes. for lack of gift-purchasing funds, T sat with me in one of our favourite cafes on bergmanstraße and helped me fold something like 150 little squares of paper into modules to make mini globes for my cousins for christmas. ha.
anyway, more recently to greet yet another little person to the world, i made this mini modular origami globe and hummingbird… with a little card cut to go with.
