That looks very nice. When do you think that you will publish your book?

Depends how fast I can become proficient in a diagramming program, so there's really no telling. I haven't finalized the model list yet (still designing them!) but it's a long-term goal of mine.

Hey, we're both Virginia folders! I really like your models, especially the Halloween and bill origami. I'm interested to see how your book turns out, but good luck finalizing things. I think when you're on a role it's hard to stop the designing process :P .

Stiletto
11/21/2010
A friend asked me yesterday if I could make an origami shoe. As I was on my lunch break I "sketch"-folded one from a square I had, but held off on refining it until I checked my books at home. I did find two high-heeled shoes in my Origami USA Annual Collections '94 and '95, but I went ahead and refined my "sketch" during today's lunch break out of 6-inch silver foil paper. It worked well but was unrefined, so I made some duo tissue foil at home and made 2 full-size (shoe-sized) versions, this one being the second, final version. I wish my other designs could be drafted, refined, and finished so quickly!

It's from a slightly modified bird base, or if you've got John Montroll's second book around, it's half a brontosaurus base with the wide triangle folded on the outside.

The friend in question wants to be able to make a shoe for a girl he likes. So tomorrow I'll teach him this and wish him the best of luck!

I love how you combined mostly simple models to create a warm Christmas scene with lots of spirit. What might be cool is if you made a whole panorama with a christmas tree and other things. :P

I'm working the next 2 days so I had to finish this up tonight!
Merry Christmas!

Gingerbread House
12/22/10
The house is made from one uncut square.
I designed a basic house shape, then grafted on some pleats to use as pockets. All the candy decorations are tucked in pockets, so no glue or tape is needed.
There's lots of potential to it, any candy shape you can manage to make will fit on there somewhere. And a long strip of white paper is as versatile as anything a chef can do with real frosting. Once I have diagrams made for it, I'd love to see what other people can do with it! Next Christmas, anyway.

Looks delicious! I think someone had some peppermint canes a few years ago, but I couldn't locate them

I made some, but I couldn't figure out where to put them.
They look like this except smaller.

Thats a great house!

The tiles and door are made through a color change, are they not?

Im pretty sure I already said this, but I love how you make a great scene with original works

The roof frosting and door are made from seperate sheets, the house is a big brown cabin with lots of pockets on it. More design freedom that way.
