Y’all! We are so excited to share that we’ve just completed our first Maker Collab AND Build-Off on YouTube! 

Richard and Jennifer from Poor Man’s DIY challenged a few makers to make an origami crane (using their instructional video as a guide) and then everyone had to make a display case for the the crane and an origami animal that Richard made for each of us. We asked for a shark, and boy did he deliver.

Since we’re in quarantine, we got super creative and decided to use all scraps/materials from around the house and came up with this Colosseum Origami Display. This was so much fun to do, and we’re really happy with how our origami display came out. 

Check out the video below to see how we did it, and be sure to check out our competition (I mean, fellow makers) via the links below. 😉
