3D origami swan pot

This particular project was started back in the first semester, when I had bought a large pack of white paper. I started making 3D units for the heck of it, and then thought it would make a nice swan. I’m made a stick-tailed peacock before and a phoenix, but not a plain old swan, funnily enough!

The general shape of the swan is up to you. For my own, I made the neck longer that the wings. I couldn’t quite shape the wings out well because I was gluing the pieces as I went along; it may be taboo to you, but it’ll hold together much better for me!

Don’t forget the orange and black piece to make the beak of the swan. 🙂

P1010210Now obviously, these pots tend to be hollow on the inside. If you want to transform it into a makeshift pot, cut out a circle that is slightly bigger than the very bottom of the base, then slip it through from the top and gently push the sides down to hold it in place.

P1010211Of course, this part is totally optional, but sometimes I like a little functionality in my decorations! Now my dear swan holds my pens and pencils for me. And because the wings are so close together, it kind of fans out the pens so it organises my collection pretty well, haha.

P1010212Another optional part, because I had a lot of leftover pieces to use up. I connected them all to make a ring for my swan to sit on top of. It’s only purpose really is to keep the base of the swan from pushing down too much. Quite often I’d find that the bottom row of the base tends to look different because it’s been pushed down too much. Well anyway, it just looks nice, haha.

P1010213Now just position your lovely swan on top of the ring. The total count of pieces used is 634 units!

Papercraft Budgie (Week 1 – Birds) + Tutorial (link)

This is my first entry for the Weekly Challenge.
It’s a simple papercraft budgie that I assembled after a model of the Internet and than placed near my real budgie.
He seems quite interested in the new paper bird but is at the moment a little shy to approach it. Soon, I hope to see him play with his new paper friend. If he does I will take a quick picture and upload it here 😀

The model can be found here:http://cp.c-ij.com/en/contents/3157/budgerigar/index.html

Origami Bird

This was a tough origami to make … not because of the model but of the paper used to make it. TRACING PAPER … never and I say again … NEVER use tracing paper as an origami paper. It’s so rigid and gets so thick at a point that your hands hurt like hell. The good part is that after it’s done the model is “stuck” in the position you left it in. It won’t bend, wrinkle etc. It’s a good paper for easy models, especially flowers (if you get the wax tracing paper).
