Magic Wallet Card

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”

-Marcel Proust

I've been looking at a bunch of arts & crafts card-making videos as of late (somehow I ended up here, when my trail began with pop-up polyhedra; which led me to flexagons; which led me back to pop-up and creative business cards; which led me to pop-up cards; and then on to cascading waterfall cards, sliding cards, flip cards, etc., etc.) I feel like such a girl and a geek right now.

Anyway, this cool card reminds me a lot of Yami's magic wallet:

Not the first time I've seen stuff like this; but I'm looking at all this through new eyes!  How far I've come from the days when I was drawn to only wanting to do single-sheet, supercomplex origami.

I suddenly have the urge to celebrate birthdays and occasions with fancy, creative, personalized cards!  (Decorated of course, with 2D origami).
