Miniature Origami 365 Project from White on Rice / Ross Symons

Origami artist, Ross Symons, of White on Rice has an awesome #MiniatureGami 365 day project underway for 2018. Every day, he posts a new miniature origami project posed with everyday objects, like swans swimming in a pond of nail polish (above), to show just how tiny these paper creations are. Dimensions of each origami project are listed in the watermark area, as well.

If you love origami and/or all things miniature (and I totally do!), then you’ve gotta head on over and check out the White on Rice Instagram to see all of the clever scenes and incredible, miniature origami creations, which are created by Symons and other origami artists. But before you go, have a gander below at some of my favorite scenes so far:
