Origami Creations - Who wants a drink?

I found this lovable model on a chinese website which is so adorable.  It's this disposable tetra-pack milk drink by Jhon Doe.  He has a flickr account with a lot of surprisingly interesting models - check it here.

Anybody hungry? thirsty?
The look is so accurately beautiful.  If you may want to try, a crease pattern can be downloaded here.

Milky drink - yum yummy
Wishing one and all a great week!

Origami Designs - Baby Chibi Chameleon

Here is my seventh of the baby chibi design series ... a baby chameleon.

This design just felt so good as it was something unexpected coming from the origami base that I was working with.  I felt the same way with the fox cubs for this model.

Hope you are enjoying this too!  Wishing everyone a great weekend!

Origami Creations - Pentagonal Dodecahedron

As I was checking my own flickr account, I was able to scan through a modular origami expert from Germany by the name of Dirk Eisner.  He makes a lot of cool geometric modular shapes.  Look at his account here and be mesmerized.

I sent him a message and he was kind enough to respond and give me his diagram to make the Pentagonal Dodecahedron.

Great shaping and symmetry
I thoroughly enjoyed making this piece.  But the bigger challenge is yet to come ... to make the four (4) interlocking dodecahedron.  Yes, four (4) of these and interconnected.

Hope I am able to succeed in my challenge ... till the next blog ...

Origami Creations - Basic Flagstone Tessellation

Finally, I am proud to be able to fold  a "flagstone" tessellation.  The look is likened to a flat stone design on a flooring of different geometric shapes.  

Here is my fold:

Cool shapes
This is called a "basic flagstone molecule" and created by the famous American origamist Joel Cooper.  A tutorial is provided by Robin Scholz here.

I made my fold on a 16 x 16 grid only ... I plan to get me good paper and make the 32 x 32 grid soon.

A great week to all!

Origami Designs - Baby Chibi Mouse

Now for the sixth of the baby chibi series, I present my simple cartoony mouse.

Simple yet the proudest!

Fortunately this design just felt so perfect ... the ears, the face, the tail and their posture.  Though they look a bit arrogant, they are indeed the best of friends!

Have a wonderful weekend!  Till the next baby chibi design ...

Origami Creations - Cool Sea Bream Fish

In spite missing the color change effect on the fish model by Kaede Nakamura, it's detailing was impressive enough to convince me to try and make it. 

Perfect for BBQ :-)
This is my first try and will surely make a bigger one with better paper soon.  

If you want to try this, you can check out the photo diagram here.  It is a chinese website but I believe you can easily follow the instructions.

A great week to all!

Origami Creation - Pacman Ghost Lives

I was trying to look for a fun and easy origami fold for a friend and was able to find this pacman ghost by Justin Hairgrove (check his cool flickr account here.)

It is so cute and really cool! What do you think?

Who is looking at who?

Mr. Hairgrove is so kind that he freely shared his diagram here.

Try making it and I guarantee you'll enjoy it!

Origami Designs - Baby Chibi Goats

Here comes the 5th of my baby chibi series design ... 

After making the fox cubs as blogged here, I felt pressured to come up with an even better model.  It took me days to determine what to do until I saw this funny crazy baby goat video ...

... so the baby goats were born :-)

Cute and loving :-)

so playfully happy

I hope I am able to continue doing justice on this design series.  One important thing is for sure, I am enjoying making them! 

Wishing everyone a great weekend!

Origami Creations - The Best Fox of All!

I finally had the opportunity to try folding Hoang Tien Quyet's lovely fox.  He is a famous vietnamese origamist.  Check out his awesome works here

This is my first try ...

Sleek and Cool
Not quite satisfied with this fold as it is a bit complicated and requires a lot of shaping (curve folds) technique.   I really have to to try and learn wet-folding so to be able to sculpt my model beautifully.  

For people who are interested to try it, a video tutorial is available below:

Happy folding!

Too excited to move on to the next chibi baby!
