808: (258/365) Gettin’ Crabby

Posted by wonko on September 19, 2017 in 365-2017, crustacean |

Now I know I am a few posts behind my fold a day schedule, and will eventually catch up, but thought I would start with this fold: Designed by Phạm Hoàng Tuấn, this charming little crab was presented on my Fakebook feed as a photodiagram sequence.

794: (244/365) From little things, big things grow

Posted by wonko on September 1, 2017 in 365-2017, nature, plant |

September 1 is often trotted out as the first day of Spring in the Southern Hemisphere: Purists will argue that the spring equinox is not until the 21st of September, but with the climate as it is, it has felt like spring for weeks now in Brisbane.

779: (229/365) Karma Chameleon

Posted by wonko on August 17, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, nature, reptile |

I went looking for something reptilian to fold today (not sure why) and found this little charmer designed by Marc Vigo: Using a series of rabbit ears on a 2×1 rectangle, you isolate legs, head and tail rather cleverly.

763: (213/365) There’s a Fly in my …

Posted by wonko on August 1, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Looking for something to fold that was vaguely “insecty”, I stumbled across a lovely box-pleated fly mangled from a 2×1 rectangle: Based on a 16×32 grid, we isolate head, legs, lovely plump abdomen and leave the back flap for a lovely set of wings.

753: (203/365) Origami Lampshade

Posted by wonko on July 22, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

I am clearly in the wrong business, if making money is the aim. Being slightly (well, I think it is healthy) obsessed with paper, when a new dealer arrives on the scene I take notice. A colleague asked if I knew of “The Paper Empire” – a new QLD outlet in Newfarm: I had not […]

728: (178/365) Bumpy Octahedron

Posted by wonko on June 27, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

So you take a 2×1 rectangle, fold it into 4×2 squares, then halve the squares: Then bring one pair of adjacent corners for each square, sink the dimply corner to lock, then repeat.

701: (151/365) Queenslander!

Posted by wonko on June 1, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, fantasy, wtf |

…a little known fact, up until the night of the day this fold was supposed to be folded (last night if I am honest, missed a day, catching up, sorry) I had NEVER watched a Rugby match. Ever: So I was over at a mates place, we were supposed to be playing a board game […]

689: (139/365) Max Hulme’s Chess Knight

Posted by wonko on May 19, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

…so, in a conventional chess set, the knight is a horsey, but in this chess set the Knight is the rider: Not sure I am really happy with this, difficult to tell with this thick paper, but the head shaping is clumsy because of the layers.

595: (45/360) Valentines Day

Posted by wonko on February 14, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Now I know there are those who say that Valentines Day is a Hallmark business opportunity, but I happen to think that celebrating someone you love is a good thing: My valentine loves to read, so I thought a pair of Washi Deluxe bookmarks would not go astray.

556: (6/365) Tiny Cobra

Posted by wonko on January 6, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly, reptile |

In exploring the “Tiny Snek” interwebs phenomenon, I stumbled across a money fold that resulted in a simple cobra: This is a variation on Vu Dung’s Cobra, folded from a 2×1 rectangle. Although relatively simple it was made more difficult by the size of the fold – this is tiny but still has a recognisable […]
