Welcome back. Well the first what's inside the shoe box and then the shoe box. its over here, and it's actually something that many of you, I'm sure, saw on the show one day when Karen Thomas showed us how to make those well known origami cranes which she made them very, very tiny and put them into a desktop mobile. We were all very impressed and love them well. Wait 'til you see 13 year old Will Hare California send to us. Now Will, I think is a little older than 13 now, because he sent this to us a while ago. But these cranes, Will learned that these are peace symbols in school. So he learned how to make them out of 1 inch squares of paper. Tiny, tiny. I think you can tell from what I'm holding on that they we're actually at one time, when they send them to us, they were inside this ornament which we pick them out so you can see them better. But I think they are quite wonderful. I just thought you might like to see them, because we did. Speaking or Karen Thomas, she was also the inspiration for some invitations that Wendy Polidori of Machetilia, Washington sent out to a party. I'm going to tell you a little bit about the party, I’ll show you the envelop though that Wendy sent her requested a shoe box for. Not a request, but her information. I'm going to show you some of her letter before I show you the item that she sent in. at any rate, she said that, my friend Misu and I we're having a new friends over to my place to learn some Japanese cooking, Specifically rice balls. Well she had seen Karen Thomas on the show making Egyptian pyramid and she thought, maybe she could make that look like Japanese temple. So she folded one, and put them together. She said it didn’t work at all. So then she thought, rice balls. Oh, rice balls. Well rice balls aren't always shape like balls, they are frequently shaped like pyramids. She said, that’s the most common shape is actually a triangle. Perfect. So she went to the refrigerator, saw that she had a couple of day old rice. It was cooked. It was dry. Not worth eating anymore, but you could tell it was cooked. So she put it out on her scanner and scanned it out on an 8x10 piece of glossy paper. Then she turned the paper around and put it in and printed out the pattern for the pyramid that was on our website. And this is what she came up with for her invitations to their gathering. Can you see the rice there? And this of course the way that Karen done it, and she said they usually put nori or seaweed on things like this. So she used some green foil. And this is the invitation that she then printed out on pieces of vellum and put in there. oh yes, before she did that, she folded it up, took it back, fold it up, took it back and then she created all the creases in. then on this side she glued the handmade paper. Then glued the invitation information.
