Inkscape: The Ultimate Diagrammer!


The best Origami Diagrammer there is... inkscape!
Inkscape is a program that I recommend installing if you want to make Origami Diagrams. It is extremely useful, and can do many, many things. It isn't specifically designed for Origami Diagramming, but it works very well in doing so. It actually is designed for any sort of diagramming, along with editing photos, making graphs, and more (such as my website favicon, which I made with inkscape) ! When you first get it, inkscape can be very confusing. There are lots of tools and settings you need to know. Go to the How To Make Origami Diagrams page to learn more about inkscape!

To visit inkscape's official site, click here. To download inkscape for Windows immediately, go here. If that doesn't work, you can install inkscape portable for Windows (like I did) which is the same exact thing and comes with inkscape, here. To download for Windows as a 7zip file, go here. If you want inkscape for Macintosh, go here.

Thanks for reading this post! Have a good time Origami Diagramming!

Origami Star Wars (With Chris Alexander)


Star Wars, one of the most original movies I can think of, has many creatures, characters and things in it. There are endless Origami Projects you can make out of it. Like Chris Alexander. One of my most favorite folders of all time, Chris is a major fan of Star Wars and Origami! So why not combine the two? He made many projects, and put them all in his book, "Star Wars Origami" which you can order on amazon here. Chris Alexander has an official site, starwarsorigami.com, which you can also check out, though the website hasn't been updated for a long time, which you can especially notice when it says the book isn't out yet!

Have a good time checking out the site, and, if you choose to buy the book, the amazing Origami Star Wars Projects!

Origami Star Wars Lightsaber (From "Star Wars Origami" A Book By Chris Alexander)


Hey guys! Today I've got something cool for you... Origami Lightsaber! I can't give you the instructions, but I can show you it! It's a very cool design from Origami Star Wars a book by one of my favorite folders... Chris Alexander!!! His lightsaber design makes it turn out kind of like a straw, but triangular, giving it a 3D look! Like I said, I can't give you the instructions, but if you want, I can give you the link to buy the book on amazon.com for $12.22 in US money if you go here.

Seeya next time, and may the force be with you!

Origami Unfoldable Box


The Origami Unfoldable Box is not just any regular box! You supposedly can't unfold this box, which is actually kind of weird, because someone commented on it, posting a video that shows that you can unfold the "Unfoldable" Box! Go here to see it!
Anyway, I'm still working on folding the Large Sonobe Cube. I'll post a picture of it when I'm done. I still haven't folded all of the units yet!
To fold this box, go here.

Have an "unfoldable" day!

To answer your question, I have no idea why I colored those letters like that... it's just fun!

Happy Folding!

The Origami Dog


The Origami Dog is a simple model but is actually very cute. It looks like you fold it out of 2 pieces of paper, one for the head, one for the body. But this guy is actually folded from one. The hardest fold in this model is the squash fold, and it's only a small one, so I definitely recommend this to those of you who are beginners! If you would like to fold it, go here.
Thanks for checking out the site today! See you tomorrow!

Undercover 8-Pointed Ninja Star!


Hey guys! I'm back with another Ninja Star! This time, it's the undercover 2-4-6-and 8-pointed undercover shuriken/ninja star!!!
I think I'm just going to say Undercover Ninja Star instead.
So, the picture above shows what it looks like in non-undercover mode, but when in undercover mode, it looks like, well, a donut. Go to the link to see what it looks like in donut mode, and how to fold it.
Thanks for reading the post today! I hope you enjoyed it! I definitely did!

The Table Racer


The Origami Table Racer, designed by Charles Esseltine, is a very cool Origami Toy! It glides across the table, like in the picture above. It's really fun, but just remember to use printer paper to make it, or it will be too light!
This project was found at happyfolding.com, and you can see the diagram here.
Have an awesome day!

Origami Tsuru Rose


Okay, so this is actually a cross between the Origami Kawaski Rose and the Paper Crane, and it looks beautiful! I found it on goorigami.com. It says that it is actually a pretty advanced model, so you might have to take a while to fold this one! And it also says that they recommend using a big square sheet of paper, because it ends up having many layers. Nevertheless, it looks very pretty, and it would be very good for decoration! To fold it, go here.
Have a good time folding the Tsuru Rose! See you tomorrow!

Clover And Hydrangea Tessellations


Hey guys! Today we've got a new thing about Origami that I've never posted before (because I've never heard of it until now!) ,  and it's called tessellation! To tessellate is to make a sort of mosaic out of paper, and it involves no cutting, so it's totally different to kirigami! I know, When I first looked at the picture above, I thought that they used cutting, too!
So the picture shows two designs, the clover (left) and the Hydrangea (right) , both of which are beautiful works of art! as you can see in the bottom corner, I got the picture from goorigami.com, a website I very much so like. You can got to the page that shows the Clover And Hydrangea here.
Thanks for reading this post! Any comments telling me more about tessellation would be welcome, because I just found out about it today, so I have a lot to learn!

Summer Origami: The Origami Dolphin


Hey! I'm back! Has anybody missed me? Well, this is going to be a good post, because it's all about Summer Origami! Summer is here! Raise your hand if you love summer weather! Oh, wait, this is a computer screen! :D Anyway, I have 2 Origami Dolphins for you. One for beginners (see the picture above) and one for advanced folders (see picture below).



The more advanced one looks better, because it's 3D, but it's very hard. The easier one is , well, easier, but doesn't look quite as good. You can pick which one you would like to fold! I folded the easy one!
