Given the uneventfulness of the Super Bowl, it sounds like I made the smarter choice in opting for paperfolding Sunday.
Assia Brill's Curlicue seems to be spreading like wildfire:
Marti showed me a couple more interesting business cards.
Pam asked to fold the Montroll horse, so I taught it to her and Andrew.
Teddy taught a 3D heart.
Hisako showed Akiko Yamanashi's box-in-a-box she had folded out of the origami paper package covering:
I folded Akiko Yamanashi's Heart Box from a Heather Shida video, having learned it years back when it appeared in an issue of NOA (I was too lazy to dig it up- but the diagrams are probably easier to follow than video).
|I wondered why the box didn't look quite right; and then after folding a second one, figured out that I had inserted the pink tube inside the red, when it should have been the other way around (to get half the heart in each color).|
Some of the folders were doing Kawasaki's One Minute Rose, but having trouble doing it in less than 5 minutes.
That Shafer tutorial is the first time I actually took the time to view the rose. I'm now interested in trying it. I think I can do it in under a minute.
Andrew Ting decided to show us how he does it. Hisako used her hour glass timer:
After bragging about how I knew how to do a 2-and-a-half hour rose (Phu Tran's), I then had to show off my split-second rose, created on the spot. One day, I'll have to give Jeremy Shafer a challenge to see if he can out-speed me, folding his origami boulder vs. my split-second rose.
David Donahue out of Riverside attended his first origami group meeting. He had never folded with other origami enthusiasts before.
