Origami Challenge

Post by Anita on Sun Nov 13, 2011 7:58 pm

Hi Hi everyone!

Folding (or origami) is a very interesting talent that many of us do not have. Yet, with dedication and by taking steps we can learn to create some easy and intermediate figures. So I invite you for a weekly Origami Challenge, where we will post images of our achievements.

Let's start with an origami windmill. I've taken the images and tutorial from Origami Spirit, a wonderful website with countles practical ideas for folding creation.

So follow the instructions, post your pics and show off! Cheesy

Origami Spirit wrote:Tips to make this windmill:
  • To make a circle from a square piece of paper, fold a preliminary base (fig.1).
  • Align a folded edge with the diagonal line (fig.2), but do not crease.
  • Make a mark on the diagonal line at the point where the corner falls (fig.3).
  • Cut a curved line from the bottom to the top corner, passing by the mark you created (fig.4).
  • Unfold and you have a circle (fig.5). Turn all the folds already in the paper into mountains on the colored side of the paper.
  • Use an inkless pen to score the curved folds, (valleys on the colored side, fig.6), then finish the model as shown in the video.

Origami Spirit wrote:
  • Once all the folds have been made -as demonstrated in the video posted previously, rest the circular piece of paper flat in the open palm of your dominant hand.
    Identify the straight folds as valleys, and the curved folds as mountains.
  • Methodically pinch and emphasize each valley-fold toward the center of the paper. Continue pinching the valley-folds as the paper begins to take the form of a cup shape, cradled at its base by your hand.
  • Once you have a loosely formed cup, focus next on the curved mountain-folds and begin to pinch the ends of each as well, one by one.
  • Now gather the ends of these mountain-folds as you rotate the model in your hand.
  • To form the flat section place your non dominant palm so that it gently touches the outer border of the paper and impart a gentle twisting motion. This locks the egg-shape in place

Hopefully instructions are clear enough to accept the Origami Challenge! Party Time! Nerd
