Thirty Days of Origami – Day #3 (Origami Water Bomb)


I’m so over origami today, so this is going to be a quick entry. Today’s installation for the Thirty Days Project was an origami water bomb (also known as a water balloon). They’re pretty easy to fold, and the trick is that you’re supposed to be able to fold them, then blow one quick breath into the paper form to expand it like a balloon. How fun, right?

Except that if you’re me, you can’t get the damn thing inflated and end up almost destroying it trying to huff and puff your way to a finished origami project. I figured it out in the end, but overall I’m not that pleased with today’s creation. If this looks like something you’d be interested in folding, you can find photo instructions here and a very helpful video here.
