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 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).

Roman Diaz’s Panda from his book Origami Essence (also in Origami Tanteidan Volume 14) is a simple and elegant model to fold. Loved it!

Cat

Origami Cat - Roman Diaz

This cat, designed by Roman Diaz, is folded from a paper strip in the ratio 1:2.45. I generally don’t like folding animals, but found the paper ratio rather unique, hence gave it a go.

The cat turned out quite well, though am yet to get the whiskers and mouth right. The tail is slightly different from the instructions, I wanted to open it out rather than shape it as in the instructions.

It can also stand by itself, so I ended up with a rather self-satisfied looking cat, happily sitting with her tail in the air! 🙂
