Being creative with brown paper

Once past Security (which was more stringent than the Olympic Park itself!), and into the Victoria Park 'Live Nation' Site, Gill and I joined a group of people preparing to be creative...

with large squares of brown paper.

Step one was easy enough - fold the square along its diagonal. No problem :)

But it didn't stay simple!

And after a series of foldings, there came the depressing step of unfolding in order to do new foldings lined up at angles to the creases caused by the first foldings.

Are you keeping up here?

We did, and eventually...

The real question is whether or not you can tell what the hat is meant to be!

Well, can you?


  1. "Light the blue touch paper and retire..."

  2. I love this !
    So much fun...

    cheers, parsnip

  3. You look like the line-up for a pantomime in those! I guess it has an Olympics theme...

  4. That is wild! The torch on everysinglebody's head! That picture of you and Gill is outstanding. (As for the pink bits, I'm not quite sure what to make of that stuff. Glad the lads enjoyed themselves creating fun for the kids who watched.)
