As promised, here are the other models by Nick Robinson that can be found in the nuinui japanese patterns box.
The bird is an action model – hold at the base and the woodpecker starts hitting the branch. The box/plate has very simple elegant lines.
They’re both folded from 15 cm double-sided kraft paper.
The buddha is folded from 20 cm Heyda plain paper, my variation that looks like pinoccio (it has a very long nose) or an imp (lutin in French) is also folded with double-sided kraft paper. It’s a first try, but I think this model has plenty of room for variations!
