turning the classic origami crane into a dragon

In The Dragon in My Mind on October 21, 2012 by romie

This is an easy and simple dragon model, a variation I’ve made on the classic crane. The paper is border-grafted first. The width of the “extra” paper is 1/6 of the original width of the paper. Then, the border-grafted paper is folded following the instructions for the classic crane origami. I leave it to you to figure out how the head with open mouth is formed, as well as the tail. Hint: the small extra square paper at the end of the head and tail flaps resulting from the grafting procedure are folded into preliminary base and then petal folded.
