Traditional Rabbit

The traditional origami rabbit is pretty easy to make and there are plenty of tutorials out there to help out. I have been trying out other rabbits as well, and am amazed at the number of origami rabbits there are – everything from the super simple to the super complex! I think I can make these every day for a month and still have pending designs!

Valentine Day Hearts

Valentine’s Day – a very nice time to make origami hearts!

I love polka dots, so I had this lovely red, polka dot wrapper paper which I was able to use now. This paper is a little [Continued..]

Antiprisms are similar to prisms but the difference is that the side faces are triangles instead of parallelograms. Also, the top and bottom parts are twisted, relative to each other. For these antiprisms, I used 3.5 inch squares – 3 squares for the triangular antiprism, 4 for the quadrilateral one, 5 for the pentagonal antiprism and 6 for the last [Continued..]

Well, there really isn’t much more to say! Give it a go Model Details: Model: Prisms Book: Polyhedron Origami Author: Miyuki Kawamura Classification: Origami | Polyhedra Difficulty [Continued..]

Masu Box

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you would know that I love making boxes And the easiest boxes to make are masu boxes. Masu boxes are actually traditional Japanese wooden, square boxes that were used to measure rice. The origami masu box is made from a square paper and results in a square box. These make great gift boxes, if a lid is added to it. The lid can also be made [Continued..]
