Kusudama “Mitsuya Kiriko”

(Repost from Atelier Ilyere)

I bought this book a year ago by Tomoko Fuse (布施 知子) called “Kusudama Origami – Hanakiriko” (くす玉おりがみ – 花切子). I can read what the Japanese says, but I don’t know what it means! Fortunately, the book uses diagrams rather than explanations to construct models, hence why I bought it. Some of the models are pretty impressive, and recently I managed to make some of the models.

This model is called “Mitsuya Kiriko” (三ツ矢切子) – Again, I don’t know if that translates to anything, so I just to the translated reading of the phrase. It uses six square pieces with eight triangular connectors to form the model. Cutting is definitely involved as you need both square and triangular pieces, however glue is optional. Personally I use glue to make it more secure.

P1010456I had two leftover pieces of the pattern chiyogami left, so I made Yoshizawa butterflies out of them (the v2 version) and made them hang off the coloured twine, with matching coloured beads.

P1010457I love how amazing it looks when the entire thing is done. It makes a lovely decoration to hang off a door handle or something.

P1010455Materials: Eight 7.5cm chiyogami squares, eight 7.5cm duo-coloured paper triangles, coloured twine, coloured beads, PVA glue

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!

P1010215Materials: 634 3D units (632 white, 1 orange, 1 black), PVA glue

Valentine’s Day – Mini Origami and Origami+Kirigami card

Valentine’s Day is almost here!

For it I have prepared a special Origami. What is it? Well … what can be expressed as love? Blooming flowers? the feeling of butterflies in your belly? A red heart? A red stone of passion?

How about all that and miniature size! This little bottle contains blooming flowers to symbolize beauty, a butterfly to symbolize freedom, a heart to symbolize love and a blood red stone for passion. All of these with a dash of patience and devotion!

As a bonus I also made a Card. A bit of Kirigami combines with Origami hearts and a cute drawing.

I hope you guys like it!

SPOTLIGHT – Colorful creations by PoeticLotusCreations

Spotlights are for all and especially for those who try their best and are creative about it!

Lately I have been chatting on Deviantart with a lovely and very enthusiastic person.

She loves color. She loves art. She loves to put her hands to work and get impressive results.

As colorful and happy as she is it only makes me glad to offer her a spotlight on L2ORIGAMI.

You can find her page here: Deviantart – page

She practices many forms of art and I would love to post them all, but this being an origami blog I’m going to feature only some of her origami creations.

As you can see she loves to be creative and combine colors (sometime even makes her own pater paper!)

As she states “My purpose is not only furthering my own ambitions, but also to encourage others to do the same.” we can only wish her good luck in her endeavors! May your ambitions lead you far!

Don’t forget to visit her page and see her other non-origami creations! Devianrart – page

Origami Five intersecting tetrahedral

Origami Five intersecting tetrahedral

This is my latest work, a modular origami piece.

The modules are quite easy to make (ratio of 1:3).

I used 4 x 12 cm strips of paper to make each module.

You need 6 pieces for each tetrahedral (5 tetras in total) = 30 modular pieces

Was very fun to “intersect”!

Here is a link to an origami tutorial if you want to make one: TUTORIAL HERE

Hope you like it!
