April Monthly Folding Challenge

Postby Tony Koppers » April 1st, 2018, 12:57 pm

Welcome to April! The topic for this month is Spring.

Design a model demonstrably relating to the word or season of spring. Get as clever as you want with it, so long as you follow the rules:

-Relates to the topic
-is folded from an uncut square (s)
-multiple sheets are allowed
-no glue, unless it is Mc

Baltorigamist will judge.

Good luck!

Spring Flowers - folded from 3 Squares

1 square of card stock for the base (Very simple fold)
1 Square of any paper for the Spring (the flowers stem)
1 square of any paper for the Flower petals

You can interchange parts to make different kinds of flowers - see last picture

Cherry blossom trees are a beautiful part of spring for Japan, Washington DC, and many other places. They symbolize life: beautiful and magnificent while it lasts, but tragically, miserably, short; and they produce cherries! The trees blossom en masse once a year during the spring, a sight that people always look forward to seeing.

This model, which is about the size of a real-life bonsai tree, was made from a 55cm sheet of kami, the only pink paper that I had. It was a struggle to get the woody texture and the color changed flowers, but I think it worked out pretty well. There is a total of about 50 flowers; quite a feat to fold from one piece of paper.

Anyways, this is my entry.

Crease -> For some reason your images aren't showing up on my computer right now. Is there another place where you could upload them?

Almost halfway, everyone. Let's get some more entries in the next couple weeks!

I reuploaded the photos, this time using imgbb.com instead of postimg.com. Hopefully, this will stay uploaded...
