Just in time for Easter, you can fold these little bunnies to tuck your holiday goodies in. By Jacky Chan.
Just want to direct your attention to this Macross origami that actually transforms! It’s in Japanese, but diagrams don’t need no translating, so have at it!
What is Macross? It’s an anime. Yes, I am a geek. We’ve already established that.
Also, yes, I’m trying to get back into blogging here again. I have lots of paper n stuff to fold and show off. Also, I miss you blog.
I’m working through Fabulous Origami Boxes by order, so first up are the bowls. They are pretty easy to fold, but I had a bit of trouble trying to figure out the diagrams.
I folded two versions of each. One being the trial version just to get the hang of things and the second version was the final version with the least amount of creases possible for presentation.
Yes, there are lucky stars in the bowls. I figured I ought to fill it with something, right?
The bowls are created using two pieces of paper. One was used for the shell and the other piece was a liner of sorts. There are a few bowls or vessel pieces that includes minor variations of the first one.
The bowls were kind of *blah* when they were combined as is, but using double sided tape to align and affix the paper together made it look better. I’m assuming if my paper were actually square, that I wouldn’t have this problem.
In some cases, I snazzed up some of the parts to make it look a little nicer. Looks like a tulip, no?
All in all, the bowls are pretty easy to fold and are pretty useful in holding, um, more origami in.
Actual boxes to come next.
So I have a bunch of origami books. The first book I’ll be tackling is Fabulous Origami Boxes by Tomoko Fuse. Its a nice book to flip through with all the purdy, colorful pictures.
I’m a little (a lot) jealous. The papers used as demonstration in the book is beautiful and probably really expensive. In my case, I’ll be using a ream of the cheapo paper I bought from staples as I follow along with this book. This should be fun.
Pictures and stuff will be forthcoming.
