Sheep

Origami Sheep

These cute little sheep, designed by Roman Diaz, would have been a great addition to my nativity scene, last month. I will be sure to add it to my Christmas collection for this year though 🙂

The model works best with paper that is black on one side and white on the other. I initially tried out with brown/dark brown paper that had a 4 inch side. The second one I tried was the brown/yellow one, using 2 inch squares. So in the end the models turned out like a mother and her baby!

The folds are slightly tricky but doable and the end result is pretty realistic. The model will make a great addition to my origami animals collection..

Week 12 (Day 06): Panda Card

Origami Panda Card

The panda card, designed by Hans Birkeland is yet another from his table card origami. The table cards are folded from a card base.

The panda card requires a lot more tweaking, to get the panda shape, but I wasn’t able to get that right. In spite of that, I quite like this one!

Week 12 (Day 05): Baby Panda

Origami Baby Panda

After all those pandas from my previous posts, here is a very cute baby panda, complete with head, body and even a little tail! I got bored of using black/brown and white paper, so for a change, here is a red and white panda 🙂

The design is by Jacky Chan and  in addition to providing instructions, he has also created a youtube tutorial. I found the tutorial very useful, especially when finally shaping the panda and converting it into a 3D model.

Week 12 (Day 04): Panda Bookmark

Origami Panda Bookmark

Yet another origami panda! This is yet again Roman Diaz’s design and a bookmark. I like the way the bookmark fits into a page corner. And when the book is closed, just the ears are visible – a rather convenient way to open the book again at the marked page!

Roman Diaz has himself made a tutorial for folding the bookmark and it is available on his blog (link below).

Week 12 (Day 01): Yoshihide Momotani’s Panda

Origami Panda Face

There are a whole lot of origami pandas! Yoshihide Momotani’s panda head is among the simpler ones. I like the way the features are captured and how close to a real panda it is, given the simplicity of the folds.

I had wanted the picture to look like the panda is coming out of a foliage, with just the head sticking out 🙂 Wonder if that impression is conveyed though!!
