Rosebud and calyx kusudama

(Repost from Atelier Ilyere)

I’m part of a group on Facebook called “Origami Kids” (the group is open so anyone can view it) where people post their creations and/or tutorials on a regular basis. Quite a while ago, I came across a post about a rosebud and calyx tutorial (the tutorial creator and the person who designed the model can be found following this link) which teaches how to make a single unit, as well as how to stick units together.

I had to spend most of my time cutting the sizes of squares required before I could make a start. The tutorial is super easy to follow, making units will be no problem!

P1010453Assembly is by sticking sides of calyxes together. The tutorial does suggest using 14 units total, but I couldn’t make the model work like that. Instead, I improvised and made a kusudama using 12. Stringing it up is fairly easy too.

P1010454Materials: 12 4in squares of green paper, 12 3in squares of pink paper, PVA glue, coloured twine

Mini Origami Lucky Stars in a bottle – necklace

OH! My lucky stars! (literally!)

Everyone loves lucky stars! But how about mini lucky stars, all with happy little faces, in a bottle!

I made this necklace for myself to always remember to smile 🙂 It’s very important that we don’t let the gloomy parts of our life make the better of us and that we should confront them with a smile!

Origami Nature Fairy Dragon – Nami

Because I love dragons and butterflies and because I felt artsy I made this!

I present to you Nami, the Fairy Dragon.

She is a Fairy Dragon of Nature. She protects nature and all it’s inhabitants. Her tail is long and it ends in a leaf drape that changes color depending on the season. She can conjure up beautiful butterflies with the help of her magical horns. On her right hand she carries a baby crane, a symbol of life and hope.

I hope you guys like her!

Dragon Fairy Facts:

1. Thought to be the tiniest dragons.

2. The faerie dragon makes its home amidst the tangled forests of the world.

3. Can also be found in extremely secluded natural areas, especially areas with flowers and water.

4. Faerie dragons are about one foot long. They have thin bodies, long tails, gossamer butterfly wings, and huge smiles.

5. Their colors range through the spectrum, changing as they age, from the red of a hatchling to the black of a great wyrm.

6. The hides of females have a golden tinge that sparkles in the sunlight; males have a silver tinge.

7. They are linguists, well-versed in Draconic, Human, and Elven tongues.

8. Some say they can turn invisible.

9. Faerie dragons can communicate telepathically with one another, within a range of 2 miles.

10. Quick flying dragons.

11. While often depicted with butterfly wings, wings may also be faerie-like instead.

12. Faerie dragons may often take great amounts of time just to prepare one joke; they also often enlist the help of pixies and sprites.

13. Most faerie dragons have a temperament that is Chaotic Good. They have pure intentions, but are extremely fond of mischief.

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 rose pen

I’ve made my fair share of roses before. I would make various flowers, then tape then to wire stems and wrap with green tape. But have you ever thought you could make a rose more that just a pretty decoration?

In this version, I took a pen and wrapped it with green paper. I then attached a Kawasaki rose to a calyx and glued it to the top of the stem. I also added a simple leaf. And thus you have a pretty rose pen! If you wanted to, you could make a stem by using the ink container inside the pen instead. The stem would look more natural as it is quite thin, but it becomes sort of hard to write with.

P1000444Materials: 14cm square of red paper, three x 7cm squares of green paper, scissors, PVA glue or equivalent, pen
