This modular origami by Tomoko Fusè can be found in “Origami modulaires d’exception” (nuinui, ISBN 9782889355815, page 106).
It is folded from 6 sheets of 15cm kraft paper from Daiso. I like the double-sided effect, but it’s pretty with one-sided paper too.
3 modules are folded and assembled, then 3 more are made in mirror direction, then all are put together. You can also make a pyramid using only 3 modules.
The small one is made with 7.5 cm paper “Dot mini origami – star” by Showa Grimm.
This elegant falcon by Luca Vitagliano can be found in “Origami – la touche italienne”, ISBN 9782889355495, page 114 (it exists in other languages too, nuinui is an multi-languages editing house).
It is folded from one sheet of 24 cm kami.
I really like that it holds well on something (here a vase). It’s not too hard to fold, and it has some details that make it recognizable as a falcon.
This was my first attempt to fold it, but I’ll probably fold it again with different papers.
This pumpkin by Tomoko Fusè can be found in this book (ISBN 9782889355815 for the French edition, but nuinui have their books available in multiple languages). It’s page 66.
It is folded from 6 sheets of square 15 cm paper (you can use 7 if you want, the model says 5 works too but I doubt it). The paper is double-sided chiyogami (in a package of 120 sheets, 30 patterns)
I think this would look better with simpler paper, this is a bit too much.But I really like the geometrical form, and it’s quite sturdy.
The book has plenty of cute models, I’ll probably present some others soon!
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!
So… I bought this big box of origami paper by nuinui editions. The paper is amazing, and I didn’t pay attention, but it turns out the four models by Nick Robinson are really cute too. They’re not complicated, but the results are good.
So I started by folding plenty of elephants. For the photos, I had to borrow the grey one back from my roommate who had already claimed it :)
The blue elephant is folded from 20cm plain Heyda paper, the tiny one is washi chiyogami 7,5 cm (there are few enough folds that it works great in small) and the grey is 20cm Folia ‘Ornamental” paper.
I’ll blog about the other models in the booklet soon :)
