When you are finished the good copies of your origami box procedural text try making an Origami Ballon or perhaps an Origami Frog.

Hey Guys,

I’m sure you’re all having a great time without me, trust me I’d rather be there with you guys than at home. I’m into my 5th day of recovery and I’m still on a liquid diet and in crazy amounts of pain! Whoever said having your tonsils taken out doesn’t hurt lied!

Remember to behave yourselves while I’m away you’re still earning cupcakes 😉
