Easter Special: Origami Rabbit


Okay, this is actually a really nice design, and I will definitely be trying to fold it! Consider this as my Easter post, because I won't be posting on Easter, which is tomorrow! Anyway, this project has excellent detail and is 3D! Pretty awesome, right? You have to start with your paper white side up, if you have a white side on your paper. You can make these Origami Rabbits for Easter decorations, if you want! People will definitely like them!

If you have trouble doing some of the basic folds, then click here, or go to the "What Is Origami?" page, and scroll to the bottom of the page to see some introductory folds. If the fold you are looking for is not there, then comment on that page, and I will try to add it! Thanks!

Origami Star Wars Clone Trooper (by me!)


Okay, so this one is the Origami Clone Trooper, created by me! I've always loved Star Wars, and I've always loved Origami, so I like to mix the two! It's actually really fun! To make this, you actually need two pieces of paper, and you put them together, so it's basically Modular Origami! I have to admit though, I did cut in one step, to make the eyes. I couldn't think of anything else! But it's still a good project, and I hope you like it!

I didn't use white and black paper, though, because I don't have that. I will probably be posting the instructions to make this project tomorrow. If you have white and black paper, then great, because it will probably work!

Update! Added the three folds you must know to do Origami in the "What Is Origami?" page! Check it out now! Click here! Or click the "What Is Origami?" tab at the top of the page! Thank you!

Origami Fast Food!


Well, believe it or not, I have two Origami fast food projects for you today! The Origami Cheeseburger, and the Origami French Fries! Yeah, these are actual models, and, though I haven't folded them quite yet, I know that they are a little tricky from looking at the diagrams! The links send you to downloadable diagrams of making the Origami Cheeseburger or the Origami French Fries! The Origami French Fries require 2 pieces of paper, and the Origami Cheeseburger requires a varying amount, depending on how many things you want on it!

Update!
Okay, now I have made one of these projects! The Origami French Fries! It is pictured above! It's very easy! Beginners, you can do it to!

The Mandala Carla


It's Tuesday, and the first day of my new blog! This is the blog for the Google+ page, +Origami Things! You can go to the Google+ page now by clicking that name! Anyway, the post for the day is about a project from +Go Origami!'s website, www.goorigami.com! +Go Origami! is another Google+ page, and is, I admit, more popular than mine! :) It is the most popular Origami Google+ page, in fact! And the project is called the Mandala Carla!

The Mandala Carla:

Okay, so this design is another Origami Star, and it's relatively easy! It looks very pretty on the front, which is shown in the picture, but slightly weird on the back, just warning you! But that's no reason not to make it! This project is very easy and very awesome! The only problem is the last unit, but once you get where it is supposed to go, you'll be alright! This is a Modular Origami project, so you need to make several units and put them together! Here is the information you need to make the project! Good luck making it!

Mandala Carla Description:
