My Second Month of One Year Origami Challenge

The second month of the year was harder than the first. On of the reasons why, it’s because I did not made a list beforehand of what to fold, so I end up losing to much time thinking on what to fold, and then not folding anything. 

I manage somehow to finish it, well, better say to have folded enough models to look like I made one every day.

Day 42 of 365. So...I saw this amazing kusudama designed by Tomoko Fuse on Instagram folded by @patricio.ravetta

 The one that I saw was made from 270 modules. I knew that I would not have enough patience so I decided to make one of 90 modules. I did the modules in one day except for the curling part, which I made yesterday and the assembling as well. The only problem is that even if I read that you don’t need glue to assemble, my modules just would stay in place..so I glue them. After I made all the 5 modules sets that I needed, I started to combine them only to realize that I made the sets all wrong. Off course I could not unglue them anymore. So what was suppose to be a beautiful 90 modules Ant Lions Nest kusudama end up on being a long patch of modules. That looks nice anyway. I was an origami challenge after all.

Day 43 of 365 I still had 20 pieces that were not glued from my mistake on assambling the 90 modules Ant Lions Nest kusudama designed by Tomoko Fuse so I folded 10 more and made the 30 modules version.⠀

Day 51 of 365 Origami Winter Bear Designed by The Idea King.⠀

Day 52 of 365 Origami T-Rex designed by Kade Chan and folded by me.

I have to admit that I was kinda scared to try this model. The biggest paper size I have is 20 cm by 20 cm. But I do love the model, and I like dinos as well, so I decided to give it a try, it would’t be an origami challenge if I choose only models I know I can fold. It’s nowhere near perfect, I don’t have details on the head as I should, The paper is not very, the layers are not aligned good enough, but I did it till the end, and I think that’s really important.⠀

Do this was my second month of 365 origami challenge.

And that’s it. Until now, in March, I haven’t folded anything, so I have a lot of catch up to do. It’s been a bit too tiresome, with work, and finishing the apartment. Soon I will be moving to a new place, where I will have more space for myself, so maybe then I will be able to stay more on track. But until than, happy folding! And good luck to all of you who participate in this origami challenge.
