November - Origami Day

Postby Maxim Trevelyan » Wed Nov 01, 2017 12:11 am

The ancient Japanese art of folding paper, known as origami, celebrates its existence on November 11th.

Did you know that the Yoneyama Yuichi holds a record for most folded origami cranes in five minutes, totaling to thirteen?

If you have never tried origami before, perhaps this creative challenge is a good way to start. Choose any origami model (or models) you want and get creative! If you have troubles choosing a model this site may be able to help.

For 15 Hoots and 15 beans, post your photograph (600x600 or less) of your origami creation as a reply to this thread by November 30th 11:59 PM HOL time at the latest. All posted photos must be of your own creation and all normal HOL rules apply.

I have never been good with origami. I always get frustrated and throw the paper away. Here is my "out of this world" owl. Hopefully it isn't too bad :P

Unfortunately I don't have any cool paper, so I just used regular notebook paper to make a flower.
