Does or has anyone else done any origami?
I use to do it everyday and considered my self to be advanced at it.
one of the last things I have done was a snake out of 1000 modular triangles. It only took me 3 days to fold all 1000 pieces.
my fingers were a little sore after that one lol
Other than that i have made 100s of different things out of origami, and in some cases 100s of each like paper cranes, and surikens.
I started making paper cranes at about the age of 6-7 so I'm probably close to 1000 of those but who knows lol
also a cool one that i have done is called a wxyz star i made it about 1ft in diameter and used 64 full pieces of paper. which was old homework paper from math class. lol
I hardly have made any in the past 3 years since i graduated high school.
one of my favorite things i have folded was a wizard. It stood in 3D rather than a flat piece of folded paper. it was ranked as advanced level along with a dragon that i have folded.


Anyway has any one else done any origami, and what was your favorite?
what was the most you have folded?

Hi!

I only started it not so long ago. I can fold two simple fox figurine, one flat, and one 3D design. I swarmed my room with paper foxes... The other animal i can fold is the rabbit. A simple, 3D table decoration, and two bit more complex 3D sitting rabbit. 

DarkShadow, could you link the paper shuriken pattern? I would like to try it myself. It sounds relatively simple, and it may be good for a beginner.

WXYZ is a little simpler as its just 4 intersecting triangles.

@Kpopluva16 im so sorry i haven't been on much lately...
i usually just look up random origami videos or folding instructions i had a few books on it as well.

Thanks for the links, the second one came in properly, but i could not open the first youtube link. It says unnamed error, so i dont know what's the problem. Could you name for me the video you linked? I'll try to find it by title.

Thanks. Its open properly, and I could make one too. The 3D star looks pretty hard to make, I will practice bit more, before I'll try it. From the link you sent me, I found something, what is obviously not an authentic japanese folding, but its funny. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kprLtErg8U
