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

SPOTLIGHT – Sagrada Familia papercraft by Pol Cuenca

Hell hello again and this is a new SPOTLIGHT for another amazing work of paper art!

Here we have one of the most beloved works of architecture – Sagrada Familia by Antoni Gaudi  – done entirely from paper.

Pol Cuenca, also known as Cuenk89 on deviant art ( deviant art page ), has an awesome gallery full of artworks made from papercraft and other types of materials. Feel free to visit his awesome gallery and enjoy all the wonderful art he has created.

As the artist states ” Sagrada Familia completed, done in 2002, when I was 13. I also did a base. 825 pieces, 3 months to assemble it (all summer)” seems like a long project but fully worth it!

So remember to visit Pol Cuenca’s deviantart page here: Deviant art page

Modified Origami Crane

I was making a few origami cranes today when a thought came to mind. Why not modify one?

So I took one and started to make a few extra folds … then I took another and moved some existing folds .. and so on.

Finally I got this form that I really like. I call it the “Origami Flying Crane”

Hope you guys like it!
