Origami anyone?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone else here is into origami. It's not exactly the post popular mainstream thing but I love it! Within the past year or so I have started to really get into origami. I find it lots of fun and a relaxing thing to do to avoid school work that doesn't involve looking at a screen. Anyway, last year a made a ton of modular origami which takes forever to do so now I am on a real kick of making origami rings which I am gluing string onto and making into Christmas ornaments.

 

Anyone have any good sites for instructions or people with good youtube videos? Or any good books you like? Where do you get your paper? I always have my ears out for some good origami resources! I find my best paper on ebay because it's cheap and is generally coming from Asia because the North American studd is super expensive. I also like Tomoko Fuse's books, she makes some great stuff. As for sites, they all suck. Not really, but I haven't found anything really great. The only one I really like is a blog; artis bellus.

 

Anyway, I don't know if anyone else is into origami so if you are please dish! If not, thanks for reading this far!

I like origami too. Mostly because I love all the lovely different origami papers. I don't have any great origami sources online. Most of the stuff I have learned is from one of the technicians I work with. I just finished making these really cool origami roses. I made a whole bunch of them and glued them to a frame. I'll post some pictures if I can figure out how to do so. :)

HOW DID THIS THREAD GET HERE?!?!? It's so old, I completely forgot about it....

Anyway, here are some pics! These were the first modulars I ever made and they are a pretty decent first attempt:

This was the very first modular I ever made. I couldn't figure it out for the longest time until I realized the pattern all the parts had to go in.

The first and last one are made from 32 (I think?? can't remember now, it was a while ago) pieces of paper. This middle one is only 24 pieces. They are all just regular old printer paper, nothing special. Now I'm working on bunnies to make for Easter place card holders. They are really easy, there's only like five folds, but they are pretty cute! Here's the video if anyone else wants to try their hand at it.

Which is why we need a hobbies forum, so stuff doesn't get lost and forgotten!

I moved it when I was going through Chatter looking for dead attachments ;)

Edit to add: Those bunnies are adorable!

Oh, so happy I found this thread! I love origami :) The modular models above are really excellent. I never had the patience to do one myself, but I always admired those who do them. One day... :)

I don't really have pics of what I do, but here's the first cat I managed to do. It's far from well done, and the real cat chewed it a little, but I love the paper so I kept it.LrMobile0304-2016-05553828239509046.jpeg

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
