We noticed you attached photosto your comment.
This is nice , I am going and try one.
Decided to try this one out and then added my own spin on it!
I do find it a little ironic. If a less popular user had made this, it would simply have been another addition to the site. However, when Grant Thompson makes it, of course it's featured.
Ironic really? Isint that how it works,...become really good at something, people start to notice you and continue to pay attention to you because you make good stuff. The fact that you know and mention his name when he isint putting it easily out there, shows he obviously made in impression on you.
Well, I do love Grant's videos, and he has made an impression on me. And of course I understand that people would pay attention to him because he makes good stuff. However, I'm simply pointing out that the only reason this was featured is because he's so well known. If I had made this, I honestly do not believe that would have happened.
Thanks for the compliments! I'm sure that if you put the work into making a detailed article and included many pictures and pages, it would be featured. Best of luck!
You're welcome Grant. I've really enjoyed this, and I voted in both contests. It just bothers me that so many things are featured simply because a popular user makes them. That said, you obviously ujjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj
I'm so sorry about that. My cat walked across my computer.
What I meant to say was: That said, you obviously put a tremendous amount of work into making this, and I genuinely hope it does well.
Cats have a purpose of making working on the computer immensely hard
This is so cool! Love the instructable.
That's awesome! I made one of these for a girl when we went our first date almost 10 years ago. Now we're married and have 3 kids as well!
We have so much in common! :D
You're welcome, and thanks for the 5★'s!!
love it mr k of r! voted!
Oh man, I remember when we used to make those out of dollar bills back in junior high which was...ummmm.... (damn I'm getting old...:) 32 years ago? lol. ...now I'm gonna have to dig out some money :)
I got one of these gave to me one night. It fit discretely in my pocket and the extra effort of making it as I watched, not knowing what he was doing was cool, too. I definitely like it better than a bought one.
Once a little magic trick is known you're not amazed anymore so girls, please don't learn this one and get amazed by a guy who knows it :)
The first time I saw this, the magician had red and green paper, the red formed the flower and the green made the stem. Not really impromptu, but it was impressive.
I think you have shown me why mine look sloppy, never quite right. My granddaughter wants me to make one, so I will try your way now.
you beat me to it!!!!!! this is a great valentines day gift, i was going to make this instructable but you definitely did a better job then i would have and thanks for getting it out there.
Very cool idea.
But also points to how interesting human behavior is. The act of folding a piece of paper in a fancy way can improve a person's chance at a good relationship.
We are weird and wonderful creatures!
Used to make this in the middle school to impress girls ;) Never gets old
Cool new intro! I'm definitely going to try this. :-)
Haha! This is awesome! :-) Thanks for sharing!
I can't actually believe I was the first comment!
