Week 14 (Day 03): Valentine’s Day Wreath

Origami Valentine's Day WreathWreaths are great for any occasion and are a sure addition for Valentine’s Day. I found quite a few origami heart wreaths for Valentine’s day and actually thought that I could have a week of heart wreaths! Maybe I will do it next year 🙂

For now, here is a very pretty and elegant wreath, made from 8 heart units. Red and white hearts would look great, I admit, but I wanted to try out another combination. I think this orange and yellow combination looks great too.

The units are not very difficult to make. The are joined together with glue. But looking at how pretty the wreath is, even origami purists would be tempted to give it a go I think!

Little Roses Kusudama

Origami Little Roses Kusudama

The little roses kusudama is a modular origami from 30 units, designed by Maria Sinayskaya.  I have been trying to complete this for quite some time now and finally did complete it.

There are quite a few variations of this kusudama. What I have done is the first of these kusudamas. The modules are quite simple to make. Assembly is like a 30-unit sonobe.

Septima Star

Origami Septima Star - 6 modules

The Septima Star is designed by Lukasheva Ekaterina. The star can be made from 5, 6, 7 or 8 units. Depending on the number of units, the star either lies flat or has a 3D structure.

The star looks best when made from 6 units, if the idea is to hang it from a tree. But I think the flaps will have to be glued down, as they tend to pop out. The 8 module one lies flat and should look great if taped to a wall. Foil paper or gold/silver paper would add a lot more cheer to the star!

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.
