origami challenge (1)

My Forth Month of One Year Origami Challenge

Update: See the new edition: Origami 365 Days Challenge 2023

I was looking over my Instagram account and remember that I used to try to make this challenge last year.

I did gave up in the end…but now I decided to go back from where I left it. 

So in the end I do want to have those 12 months of origami challenge or better say those 365 models.

As a front disclaimer, the models have not been made everyday…so I fail in this aspect of the challenge and now is 28.06.2020 so it’s been some time.

Also over the winter I lost most of my origami models due to poor air circulation in the house and improper storage choice.

The models that you will see in this article are folded between 27.10.2019 and 27.03.2020.

If you want to see how I did in the previous months, you can click the buttons bellow:

A simple model to make. I love to fold this every Christmas season.
