Mini-Book or Mini-Album

In Other models on July 4, 2017 by romi

This mini-book or mini-album model is designed and folded by me. It’s based on a 4 x 4 grid and makes use of a double or twin sink folds. No cutting. Gluing is not necessary. It has 12 pages (or 6 square flaps). There are 4 triangular pockets: 1 on the first or front page, 1 on the rear page, and 2 in the middle. There are also pockets in the 2nd and 5th flaps.

The photos show the mini-book at its barest. I folded it using a 12″ x 12″ scrapbook paper. If you make one, you can add any embellishments you like. Use a separate paper for the cover.

my first kusudama

In Other models on August 30, 2015 by romi

This is my first kusudama, composed of 6 square units which I folded from a 4.5″ x 4.5″ paper that I cut from a gift wrapping paper. It’s more cube-shaped rather than spherical.

simple ship

In Other models on July 5, 2014 by romi

This is a simple ship model. Unlike the traditional origami boat that kids usually fold from a rectangular paper, this one is folded from a square paper. I like the color change here. It’s a beginner-level, good for practicing how to fold a paper by thirds.

Sail on! 🙂
