|Tsum Tsum Origami Book from Kinokuniya|
Instructions are relatively easy. The head is made with one piece of green. The little hands need a 1/4 piece of green, plus 3 white circles for eyes with black pupils drawn on. This would have been more difficult except I have a fab circles stencil ruler.

Then it was folding... folding... folding...
|Big papa alien is a kind and hands-on father|
I had an IKEA frame lying around so into that the aliens went. The hardest part of the whole assembly was fixing the little aliens in some semblance of disorder so the effect would be little aliens tumbling onto the big one. Not sure I did that very well since I got anal and put them all in neatly non-overlapping positions. If I make another one of these (with a difference character of course), I might actually throw them together for a more natural effect.
