Folding paper

April 22, 2012 § 4 Comments

I´ve recently taken up origami and paper folding.  I folded the model below with a white sheet of printer paper folded in v-pleats. I find it absolutely amazing and somewhat surprising that this is possible. I can´t believe I did that:-)

I actually started out with origami but then I found the book below by Paul Jackson and it was really inspiring. I love how you can take a simple piece of paper and make something fun or beautiful and suddenly that initial sheet is gone. Though it required some effort and it was difficult to be zen-like about it all the time, I succeeded in folding some of the models from his book. I´m still working on a better way to photograph them to do them justice…I am open to advice.
