“Help me Obi Wan Kenobie, you’re my only hope’: This is my second attempt at Tadashi Mori’s “Leia”, a fun fold that does so much with a tortured little piece of paper.
…now I am as much a fan of Star Wars as the next browncoat. I loved Orac, thought he was the best little droid sidekick since Starbuck and 7 of 9 was my favourite character in all of the series: This is Tadashi Mori’s “Storm Trooper” – a lovely little clone of a guy from […]
Social media, gift that it is, has fundamentally broken two concepts I think. The “friend” and the “like” now no longer mean what they used to, and culturally I am not sure we are not really ready for that change: The “friend” has come to mean some random that stalks you, watching what you do.
Now I am not of the generation that grew up with Pokemon, but seem surrounded by adults that were. Fandom/enthusiasm takes many forms and the latest augmented reality game “Pokemon GO!” is so hot right now I felt I had to fold a poke-thing because…reasons I had seen a video tutorial from Tadashi Mori on […]
When asked by a friend of my son’s if were possible to fold something to celebrate their fist wedding anniversary, which coincidentally is the “Paper” anniversary, I thought why not: The couple are dragon fans, so it seemed obvious to include something from that world. I looked around for something that would present in a shadow […]
Needing to fold something and having a lovely sheet of Elephant Hide paper means something is going to get creased: I saw this model in a video tutorial just published by Tadashi Mori and knew I had to try it. It reminds me of one of those cute little plastic dolly’s that are all the […]
I was given a beautiful sheet of Unryushi tissue by a friend. The arrangement (in case YOU want to take part also) is if you give me nice paper, I will make you something out of it. I prepared the paper by Methyl Cellulosing it to a clean window: This make it crisp and strong, […]
I have been looking for a nice dragon, you know, in celebration of the forthcoming release of “The Hobbit” (being a bit of a fan): I saw a coloured/cut version of this dragon on Deviantart and thought it worth trying, turns out it is a WIP from Tadashi Mori, who released a video of how […]
When I first folded Tadashi Mori’s Celtic Cross I knew it would come in handy, being that it is a part of the symbology of my College: My year 12s (well, I call them mine, they were the leaders in my tutor Group – a lovely bunch of chaps) had their last day of classes […]
I saw a video of this interesting structure and decided I should give it a whirl: It is Tadahi Mori’s “Spiral Star” – a lovely fiddly modular using 6 bits of paper that interlock to form a 12 pointed star with lovely spirals near the centre. If this was not so fiddly, it would make […]
