How do you make a 3d origami Santa?

******************


I am not sure how to make an origami Santa myself :) I think you may be more likely to find what you are after at sites like The Origami Resource Centre.

I like origami but I do love to use my paper punches to make handmade Christmas cards. I've added pictures of some made with paper punches for you to see. The Christmas tree card was made using the Pennant Parade punch set, for example. It's fun to see what my punches can be used for other than their original purpose.

If you do make an origami Santa, please come back sometime and show me what you made. I would love to see it.

Where can I get instructions for your version of the dollar bill elephant?

***************************


I'm sorry I don't have a version of an origami dollar bill elephant. Perhaps it was another site you were looking at?

I do have origami paper roses and iris folding on the site at the moment.

You have reminded me that I intended to show people how to make the sunflower pictured above as well.

Origami is an area I have not really taken up on this site. I have much more information about stamping, card making and scrap booking. Maybe I should add a few more origami projects now that you ask!

I hope you find what you are after in the meantime.

I want to learn how to make a 3D origami vase.Can you tell me the detail instructions to make a 3D origami vase?

***************************

Hello Bui Kim Thoa

I am sorry but I don't have much origami on this site. I have far more handmade greeting cards and scrapbook ideas here :)

I think you want the papercraftcentral site that ends in 'net' instead of 'com' for your instructions. A quick search on Google pointed to that site:

https://www.papercraftcentral.net/2009/07/3d-origami-independence-day-origami-vase/

I hope that helps.

In the meantime, a study of succulent plants like the ones pictured may help to inspire origami paper fold ideas.

I enjoy your website and would love to know how I could find the diagram for the origami Goldfish Chopstick Holder.

Thank you.

Hi Todd.

I am sorry but I have no such project on this site. I believe you are after a site that ends in 'net', not 'com' like my site does.

I make fish and sea type CARDS though. I decided to add a few of my ocean cards for you to see anyway. This is much more in my line of crafting (get it? My line. My fishing line. I crack me up!)

Most of the cards have heat embossing on them. I like to emboss my main image then pop it up to make it look a little more three dimensional.

The water pouch is a plastic bag with a small squirt of hair gel inside. I added glitter too. Spread it out inside the bag then seal the bag really well. Then I taped it to the back of the card window and covered that with more designer series paper inside. It looks nice with a contrasting border on the outside of the card window, don't you think?

You know what I was thinking? A brayered landscape would also have looked great behind that water window. It would also look good as an easel card.

I might have to break out some craft goodies later on today now. Lol!

Good luck finding the pattern you are after, Todd. Sorry I don't have much origami at all on my site. Yet.

I do not know how to make paper airplanes

I would like to know how to make paper airplanes.

Hello Filip

Thank you for writing to me. I can make basic paper airplanes but I have discovered a lovely page for you to look at that explains how to make many different kinds of airplanes.

Just go to the Origami Resource Center to find out how to make some wonderful paper airplanes.

I would love to see your planes when you have finished making them so do come back and show me, perhaps on the 3d paper crafts page?

Have fun making some planes!

Susan

Hexigonal origami pencil holder

I saw your photos of the hexagonal origami pencil holder and would very much like to get the directions to make this. Can you please post them or tell me where I can get them? Thanks.

*************************


Thanks for your question.

I do not have a hexagonal pencil holder on site as I have not made one before. Maybe I should figure out how to make one as two people have asked me about this lately! I don't think it would be too hard to make a hexagonal BOX, then to put dividers in it....

I think you want the site for the origami pencil holder you asked about:

www.papercraftcentral.NET

The Papercraftcentral site ending in 'Net' is all about origami. My site is more about cardmaking and scrapbooking. Origami is an interest of mine but I have not developed it too much yet.

My site is www.papercraftcentral.COM

An easy confusion :)

I suggest searching that other site or asking for instructions there.

Happy papercrafting

Susan
