Mother Mary and Baby Jesus

In handmade cards,Other models on November 5, 2017 by romi

I designed this card, including its focal point, Mother Mary and Baby Jesus. I’ve been thinking of making Christmas cards with this model. The “frame”, with rose motif, is the traditional origami medallion which I have been using for my card design lately as you can see in my previous posts.



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.

This house model can actually serve as a lid to a masu box.

my first kusudama

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! 🙂
