How to Fold Origami Paper Claws

Ever think about making paper claws? Do you have a kid who loves Wolverine, cats, or monsters?  Then today's origami craft is for you!  We're taking a short departure from my typical uber-cute and colorful origami projects for some more ferocious ones.  RAWR! As a mom of two boys, our home is constantly the sight of roughhousing.   Both had a blast pretend fighting* with these easy-to-fold claws.  So grab two sheets of paper and let's get folding! 

 (*And let's be honest, real fighting too... ack!  Summertime shenanigans currently abound over here...)

Quirky Origami Sumo Wrestlers

Awhile back I made these super cute Sumo Wrestler bowling pins from plastic bottles.  Maybe this makes me a crafting dork, but I still look back fondly at that craft.  They were just so quirky and fun!  Today I am once again inspired by Sumo Wrestlers.  But instead of making them out of plastic.... we're folding them out of ... origami paper!

Yes!  Let's get folding!
