So, I am trying to work on and create the advertisement for the Oct 3rd Tea Event. I went searching through my scrapbooking supplies and stumbled onto some origami paper that is very beautiful. Below are 3 scans of the paper, out of 8 total. The paper very pretty, with raised gold detail. I remember buying this particular paper from a common craftstore. In particular it caught my interest because the designs were inspired by kimono designs.
It almost seems a crime to use these papers for origami.
You can find a huge collection of these papers online and for sale at http://www.japanesepaperplace.com/wholesale/chiyo/chiyogami-yuzen-general.htm . In the least they are great inspiration.
