ORIGAMI
- as a hobby


Origami is a traditional Japanese folk art of paper folding. It was created in the 17th century and has evolved into the modern art it is today. It consists of transforming a flat sheet of material (that is typically paper) into a sculpture.

 

WHAT DO YOU NEED?


The only material needed for origami is paper. It should be thin, able to hold a crease, and not tear easily when folded a number of times. Some origami paper is coloured on one side, with white on the other.

WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH PAPER?

 

You can do almost everything, if you have imagination and skills, for example: animals, boxes and Christmas decorations :)

Next is scrapbooking :)

 

SCRAPBOOKING- what is it?

 

A scrapbook is simply a decorated photo album that also preserves the stories behind the photos (called journaling), it can also hold memorabilia (tickets, certificates, letters, etc.). You might have a family album as well as smaller theme albums for vacations, home improvement or a baby’s first year.

 

HOW CAN YOU START?

 

  1. Sort your photos into themes or topics and select a set to work on.
  2. Select 2-3 colours of acid-free paper or cardstock that will work well with your photos.
  3. Pick one photo to be the main focus of your page.
  4. If needed, crop your photos
  5. Add journaling(Your pictures only tell half of the story and without the narration to go with them their meaning may become lost over the years. Think about not only including the basic "who, what, when, and where" style of journaling but also incorporating the feelings, thoughts, and memories that these pictures bring to you).
  6. Add a few extras (such as stickers and embellishments).
  7. Arrange all items on your pages and adhere.

Base jumping

Base jumping is the extremal sport. This is mix of adrenaline, jumping, high and a little of danger. Some people jump on this with only one parachute, because the second was opened only in 600 metres above sea level. In this sport they do not exceed this height. Fans of this sport jumped from big rocks in America, buildings, bridges. This is a very dangerous sport and sometimes people will die.

Ice cross is a big race, which takes place on ice. This is a long track with many obstacles, where participants must avoid, example, down stairs. Participants wear helmets, masks, covers. In race there are many accidents, you can be hit by someone. Company Red Bull organises this competition. The first in finishing-line is the winner and gets a cup. This sport is only for brave people.
