Origami

I am a fan of origami since I was little. I have a few books and constantly make one or two models, my favorite is the mantis by mr. Lang, anyone else is an origami fan?

you can find models in http://www.origami.com/ ( I hope this is not consider spamming )

The only thing I ever made, or able to make, out of paper, are airplanes
I saw a picture of an origami cow once, that was cool.

I have known origami since I was a child, and used to know how to make many things, like dinosaurs and the 200pc swans...
I wish I had practiced...

I used to do origami when I was younger back in my private school, however the only thing I could make were a cup, boat, box and frog.

I like origami, I haven't made many different types, but I am up to about 500 cranes, but I haven't made many lately.

My mom got me into origami when i was younger. I used to be able to make: box, rose, boat, samurai hat, and various animals.

It really is a pretty cool hobby. The perfect time to do it is when someone is lecturing and everyone was given an outline sheet.

Not much...you actually need 1000.

This web page has a good explanation:1,000 cranes, plus art made with origami cranes.

In Japan, the tradition of folding 1,000 cranes is done when someone has a wish, be it for peace, health or luck.

I like Origami, but I haven't had much time to get reinterested in it lately. I'd love to learn and try (and there's some beautiful, perfectly fitting paper out there!) and even to understand the mathematics and process behind it, and then create my own folds...


However I am doing this art project for some competition I'm forced to join, I decided to use cranes in it. I only decided to start on Monday though, it's due on Friday! I'm folding 250 cranes and then arranging them in an "infinity" sign and stuff... It's fairly simple except for the folding 250 cranes part I'm using mini-senbazuru paper, it's only got 250 pieces of small paper in 10 colours (red, yellow, orange, light pink, dark pink, light green, dark green, light blue, dark blue, white, and 1 piece of gold and silver each )

I've finished about half of it at this point of time. I did 25 on Monday, 75 yesterday and about 13 so far today...

One thing about Origami, I really don't like models where you have to use scissors to achieve what you want. Maybe if it's a very complex design and it's a tiny snip here and there, fine, but for the most part I really prefer those that are made purely by folding. Perhaps I'm just a purist at heart.

now I'm 0% sure about that. The guy who said that is such a liar...

Folding 250 cranes isn't easy, but once I had to fold 40 beetles for my class in my school, that took me all night! even my parents helped me out, but they couldn't make some of the foldings.

Totally agree. If you are going to cut, better just use the scissors to shape a piece of paper instead of folding, I guess I'm a purist too, because I prefer the model if is made with a square-shaped sheet and no cuts at all.

I made a origmi of a samuri warroir riding a panda bear being pulled by a team of lions. took about 2 reems of paper of trial and error to create this one.
HOWEVER, since i dont have a digital camera because im poor (and cameras steal people's souls), i had to use a flatbed scanner to show you guys my work of art:
