About the Model

the Origami Goat has been designed by Peterpaul Forcher. It’s difficulty is  low intermediate. It makes a good challenge for people that already fold models like the Origami Crane with ease. Any kind of origami paper can be user to fold this Goat. You need to divide the sheet into thirds, so either you need tools like a ruler, or have a similar way of doing division in the paper. In the tutorial video, one “pure origami Way” to do this is demonstrated.

Bird of Paradise

During the holidays there were a few tables to decorate. I stumbled upon the fact that I can not really do any neat napkinfolds. I decided to change that and looked at one website or another and discovered the bird of paradise. My favourite napkinfold so far. Folding napkin differs quite a bit from paperfolding and there are interesting things that napkins can do which paper can’t. I’m always happy to find knew areas of folding. Below you find the tutrial I mad efor the bird of paradise. enjoy!
