Suggest me anything you can come up with, I'm having a bit of a drought, and can't come figure out what to fold.

I have a couple of 15cm (6in) squares of red and green double unryu tissue paper left over from a bigger piece that I cut down for something else. Anybody know of any decent color change models for some relatively small red / green? Its actually not cut all the way down yet, so I could leave it as a 2:1 rectangle that is 15cm x 30cm if anyone knows of something that might use that.

Thanks,

I recently bought some paper that advertised itself as 'vellum paper'. I hadn't heard of it, but I have five sheets, all beautiful different patterns, some snowflakes, some sparkly, some of it appears to be handmade, anyway, they're all a4 size and range from about 40gsm to 87gsm. (random average guesses)
they look beautiful to fold and can anyone think of some simple but attractive models that are obvious what they are (possibly animals) to make as gifts, easy enough to learn and master and make perfect.

I have
1sheet of thicker starry paper, single sided, black on the other side
1sheet of thicker snowflake paper, double sided.
1sheet of thinner handmade double sided brownish paper with pink horseshoe patterns in it, about 60gsm
1sheet thin shiny paper, with heart patterns, smaller than the rest. Single sided
1sheet of very thin shiny paper that gives me a headache when I look at it because it has a visual illusion on it, single sided.

Any suggestions?

Hmm, no one's been attempting any answers to these lately! Not sure I'm the best person, but I'll have a go:

ginshun: The ruby-throated hummingbird by Michael LaFosse would work well with that paper, I think

Harpseal: Patterned paper is tricky, the design needs to be something very simple otherwise the pattern just detracts from it. I wondered if Roman Diaz's peace dove would work with the snowflake paper. I think it's a lovely model. The others I'm not so sure. I know you said animals but I wonder if you could try one of Jeremy Shafer's flashers for the visual illusion paper? It might be quite effective, but then if it's thin paper might not last very well.

Hmm. Good ideas. I like them! Really, anything that'd make a good gift. I have loads of special paper hanging around for when Its the day before someone's birthday and I haven't got them something. This is my first patterned paper, so I want to do something special with it.
I like shafers flashers. I can see how that'd work with the visual illusion paper quite well.
Thanks!
