Jo Nakashima made a video tutorial for this adorable Totoro by Robin Glynn. My brother and his girlfriend like Totoro a lot, so I made one for them… and then her sister asked for it when she visited, so I had to make them another one – let’s say, if you have Miyazaki enthousiasts around you, you can fold this model a few times :) It’s not excessively complicated, but looks really good.
Totoro is folded from one sheet of 25cm grey kami ; The leaf, as said before, is one square sheet of 20cm paper. Jeremy Shafer made a video tutorial.
Here you see the back of the leaf.
The cute gorilla is by Lionel Albertino, you can find it in “Safari Origami”, ISBN 2844240062. You can download the book because the author re-published it for free, thanks to him! It’s in French, but folding conventions are international :)The book has plenty of other models.
It’s folded from one sheet of square 20cm paper. I really like the mouth :)
The leaves are by Jeremy Shafer. They’re folded from one square sheet of 20cm paper. Here’s the video tutorial.
Jeremy Shafer published a youtube tutorial for this flapping butterfly card. Paper: 35 cm double-sided paper from origami-shop.com (don’t try smaller paper on your first try). And yes, the butterfly does flap its wings when you pull on the sides of the card :)
The skeleton hand is found in this video tutorial. Paper: 15 cm kami. People like this model a lot, it’s especially popular around Halloween :)
Both models are high-intermediary. They’re not in his books, but he has many other amusing models to fold :)
These adorable bats are very, very popular among all the people I give my origami to. I fold them regularly, because I know people will always be happy to have one – I think it’s partly because of the magic of pop-ups, but they’re also particularly beautiful.
The bat on the right is folded with 24cm double-sided paper. The bat in the middle is from Tuttle Rainbow patterns 15cm. I don’t remember the leftmost paper.
You can find the (beautifully hand-drawned) diagram in “Origami Pop-Ups to Amuse and Amaze” (ISBN 978-1494299026). He also made a youtube video.
