Heart Dish

This heart dish is a modular dish, made from 4 squares. An apt origami for Valentine’s Day I thought. I am not able to find out the creator of this model.

Happy New Year 2013!

Happy New Year, dear readers! I hope this new year is a blessing to all of you. So I wanted to start off the new year on the blog, with a beautiful project.
