Origami models by Stéphane Gigandet

Post by origamiplus »

Hello!

I recently started to create my own origami models, I am going to post some of them here.

They are very simple models. I post video tutorials for all of them on my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCY8f_A ... 2aiRN-79rg as well as photo diagrams on my site Origami.plus

Here is a Santa Claus model that can stand (for just enough time to take a picture if you are lucky!).

A simple Snowman :

An elephant that you can fold from the lily flower model:

And a reindeer head that you can also fold from the lily:

I like the lily a lot, those last two models were created for a creation challenge on the French "Pliage de papier" forum, the theme was "Hijacking the lily".

I hope you will like them. :-)

Happy folding,

Stéphane

Origami hearts in 2, 4 and 6 folds

Post by origamiplus »

Hello!

Here are 3 heart models I created and published yesterday:

The first one is a 2-fold heart, but it still quite recognizable, even with only two folds!

Image

The second one is a 4-fold heart with two more folds to give it a rounder a wide shape.

Image

And the third one is a 6-fold heart with again 2 more folds to give it a very round shape.

Image

Surprisingly I could not find any similar hearts on the Internet. There are lots of other hearts though, it's definitely a very popular theme!

I hope you will like them! :-)

Stéphane

Edit: I was told that those models were already invented by Jeremy Shafer more than 20 years ago.
It would indeed have been surprising that nobody had though about them before.

Awesome designs! I like the simplistic nature and the creativity that went into them. (:

It takes about 15 minutes to fold, but then you can play with it for hours. :-)

My new model is a very easy origami Halloween pumpkin box. It's a "messy origami" model for which the folds do not have to be precise. What do you think of it?

A new modular origami Christmas Tree that takes only 5 minutes to fold (less than 1 minute per module).
What do you think of it? If you fold this tree, please send me a picture. :-)



Happy Holidays Everyone! :-)
