My Third Month of One Year Origami Challenge

Even if now it’s October so it’s actual the tenth month and not the third of this origami challenge, I did not gave up. It took me way longer than I expected but I made it through. I don’t know if I would be able to catch up, but we should see.

The third month of the year was the hardest till now.

Not making a list in advance was again a huge mistake of mine, Also I always got lazy or distracted and would find excuses almost from anything not to fold.

But, beside all of that I manage somehow to finish it, and call it a month. 

I will still consider it a big win if by the end of the year I will have 365 origami models, even if the models were not folded everyday. 

Check out what I did on the first month.

And also on the second one.

P.S. I’m sorry for the quality of most of the photos. I have lost the originals and had to save them from my Instagram account. 

Day 60 of 365 Flying Pig designed by Paul Frasco

You can find the diagram for this really cute pig in the Creased Magazine 7. It’s easy to fold, It’s extra cute even if sometimes he just doesn’t want to stay on his feet.

I am a huge fan of Eric Joisel models. His way of folding it’s amazing. I was really sad when he had to leave this world. But we can always pay him homage by folding his models.

You can find the diagram for this simple yet powerful design in the Creased Magazine 7 bonus model. 

The paper I used is  Rainbow Colors paper by  Tuttle Publishing.

So this was my third month of 365 origami challenge.​

It’s been a journey till now. I had my ups and downs, I also struggled with finding the models I want to fold and keep track. 

I’m not good at creating habits, but I will work on that with every day that goes by. 

Origami it’s a great way to relax but sometimes it can get frustrating. The best thing you can do it’s to take a brake, go on a walk, have a cup of tea and then start having fun folding again.

See on the next update. Happy folding! And good luck to all of you who participate in this origami challenge.
