Martin Quinn's 365 Origami Challenge 2017

Date Image(s) Model Author Comments
2017-01-01 Octagonal bowl Martin Quinn One of my original ideas behind the 365 was to see if I could find inspiration to create more than this, my one and only creation to date!
2017-01-02 Mouse Nicolas Terry A new model for me which unfortunately means that this is not the neatest example in the world.
2017-01-03 Ruby Throated kingfisher Michael LaFosse Three days in and the good intentions of trying to stick to models I hadn't folded before fell by the wayside - this was partly due to a first attempt to just work my way along the shelf of origami books and partly that I ran out of time to fold anything more complex.
2017-01-04 Stacking triangular boexs Tomoko Fuse I always find after a rough day there's nothing more relaxing than folding one of Ms Fuse's boxes, and today I really needed a box!
2017-01-05 Sperm Whale Roman Diaz This is a nice model to fold, but was the first of many models that was difficult to get a decent photograph of.
2017-01-06 15 degree Cat Seiji Nishikawa I certainly can see me coming back to this model at some point, possibly with a somewhat stronger paper, the 25 cm kami shows too many inadvertent creases.
2017-01-07 Clown Mask 2 Hideo Komatsu One of the very few models in The Works of Hideo Komatsu that I hadn't already folded.
2017-01-08 Two Faced flower Maria Sinayskaya Bit tight for time, and this was the simplest model to hand.
2017-01-09 Hampster Yoo Tae Yong Another nice, but impossible to photograph model.
2017-01-10 Fairy Penguin Shoko Aoyagi One of my all time favourite models, and one which, despite principles to the contrary, is almost impossible not to stick googly eyes on!
2017-01-11 Fish Yannick Gardin A simple model with lots of scope for tweaking to create a whole school of subtly different results.
2017-01-12 Bugatti Max Hulme A model I had been meaning to fold for years, and so I took the opportunity since we had an avowed petrol head leaving the team and this seemed like a perfect parting gift.
2017-01-13 Collie Edwin Corrie Don't know if it's the model, or more likely the poor quality of my folding, that makes this look more like a lion than a collie?
2017-01-14 Dolphin Rikki Donachie Still trying to work along the shelf, and this was my first choice from Rikki's book. Still wondering if I should have used photoshop to lose the support.
2017-01-15 Ring 26a Tomoko Fuse A simple ring, but possibly the first (and certainly not the last) model where my colour choices have not done the model justice.
2017-01-16 Flower vase Saburo Kase Not the best paper for this one either, but it does sort of emphasise the simple clean lines of the model.
2017-01-17 Goose David Brill Nice model, and not even that difficult to get it to stand.
2017-01-18 Hippocampus Quentin Trollip My first attempt at this model, and whilst it's not bad it's another one that is difficult to photograph. Must try this one again sometime.
2017-01-19 Cardinal Roman Diaz A lovely simple model from one of my favourite designers.
2017-01-20 Star Light Tomoko Fuse This is an easy to fold, easy to assemble modular and hence it could easily be fitted into the daily folding slot - unlike some more complex modulars.
2017-01-21 Corona Solare Star variation Maria Sinayskaya Simple to fold, looks like much more than just eight pieces, and has a very strong lock. Perfect. (Shame about the quality of the folding though)
2017-01-22 Red Knot Andrew Hudson Nice simple model, but no hope of getting this one to stand on it's own.
2017-01-23 Pigs might Flap Paul Hanson How could I resist the flapping pig?
2017-01-24 3D Sparrow Adilio Toledo Aaarrrgh!!! what is it with these lovely models that just won't photograph properly!
2017-01-25 Sad Apple Artur Biernacki I liked this model as soon as I folded it, there's just a perfect expression of pathos.
2017-01-26 Elephant Jyh-Chang Su Nice model, but it is almost literally all ears!
2017-01-27 Ostrich Lan Kwong Chung OK I confess, it was late, I was tired, and I couldn't summon the will to fold something else - otherwise this picture would never have seen the light of day. One day I will go back and see if I can fold a moderately acceptable version - this one is for the kindling pile!
2017-01-28 Hippopotamus Hideo Komatsu It was time for something a bit more challenging and this seemed like a good choice ..... three hours ago! Still a fun model to fold with only a couple of tricky bits, it's just unfortunate that one of them is taking a decent photo of the result.
2017-01-29 Cairo Tesselation David Mitchell That's tessellation as in pavement rather than the more common origami usage. Does feel a bit like cheating though as the units don't lock together, they actually stick to the background as the units are all folded from post-it notes!
2017-01-30 Penta Coaster Jeff Beynon Must work on my colour/paper selections!
2017-01-31 The Gryphon Joel Stern This is one of those models where I'm not sure if I like the result or not.
2017-02-01 Octagonal box Tomoko Fuse Much as I Love folding Tomoko's boxes, I really wish I could improve on the consistency of my shaping to give this beautiful design a better representation.
2017-02-02 3D Picture Frame Alice Gray Yes, I know I didn't add a photo, I didn't want to detract from the model. Then again, maybe it would have served to distract the eye from the less than perfect folding. Oh well, c'est la vie!
2017-02-03 Sparrow Roman Diaz I've been a fan of Roman's work for a while but this is one I haven't tried before, no idea why since it's a lovely little model.
2017-02-04 Boar Do Tri Khal A true origami model. It perfectly suggests the subject, whilst at the same time being completely different from the real thing.
2017-02-05 Common Raccoon Noburu Miyajima Nice model but possibly not one for folding from foil, I really need to work on my paper selections!
2017-02-06 Pussy Hat Beth Moore Johnson As Beth expressed it at the time "I can't knit one, but I can fold one!"
2017-02-07 Tato Flower Loes Schakel Very simple, easy to fold, and absolutely beautiful. Perfect.
2017-02-08 Baby Monkey Kunihiko Kasahara So simple and so cute!
2017-02-09 Setareh (Star in Persian) Ali Bahmani This is a nice model, what isn't obvious from the photo is that the central star is actually 3D.
2017-02-10 Timber the dog John Szinger If that's not a dog waiting to be fed I don't know what is!
2017-02-11 Horned Owl Hideo Komatsu Another Komatsu model I hadn't folded - for some reason hearing lots of people talk about how nice a model was made me strangely reluctant to try it. More fool me!
2017-02-12 Rooster Hideo Komatsu This one seems almost cartoonish to me.
2017-02-13 Eight Pointed star Peter Engel Deliberately photographed from this side. You DON'T want to see the other side!
2017-02-14 Stern Clarissa Carmen Sprung Lovely simple eight piece star that works pretty well with the transparent paper.
2017-02-15 Crab Peter Engel Disaster No2. I have no idea how I managed to lose two legs and not notice until I was finished!
2017-02-16 Reef Fish Roman Diaz Another great model from Mr Diaz - simple to fold, and spectacular if (unlike me) you choose the right colour combination duo paper.
2017-02-17 Tutankhamen Mask Marcela Brina I would love it if the stripes all came out the same way, but I guess that may be asking a bit much.
2017-02-18 Skull Anna Kastlunger I had this in a book for years without ever folding it. I don't know why, but it just shows how you can skip over little gems without noticing them.
2017-02-19 Ruby Unit Nick Robinson Another nice, simple (a.k.a. quick) modular - this time from Mr Robinson.
2017-02-20 6 Pointed Star box Robin Glynn An interesting shape for a modular box, but well worth the effort.
2017-02-21 Angry Bird Wayne Brown It never ceases to amaze me how much expression can be conveyed by a few simple folds.
2017-02-22 You're a star Mick Guy Another nice model spoiled by a poor choice of paper, oh well, better luck next time!
2017-02-23 Roast Chicken Arun Soor This one always makes me smile. It's so simple, and so much easier to fold a bird without having to worry about crimping a realistic beak!
2017-02-24 Little Donkey Christophe Boudias Ok, so my version looks more like at two horned unicorn, but the design is nice all the same.
2017-02-25 Box Bowl David Wires I should probably have added two photos of this - the box holds together in this configuration, but if you just open it a little, then it will pop out into it's bowl configuration all on its own.
2017-02-26 Dragon #6 Jo Nakashima Must fold more of these!
2017-02-27 Tote Bag Makoto Yamaguchi What can I say? Yes the handles are separate pieces, but the lock between the handle and the bag is so strong that I think the paper will rip before the lock gives way.
2017-02-28 Dalai Llama Rodrigo Salazar Simple enough - except when you use paper that is too thick thus making the neck tough to fold. An no it's not me that made up the somewhat tongue in cheek name.
2017-03-01 Elephant John Morgan I look at this after folding it and wonder why I didn't try to pass mine off as an ant-eater.
2017-03-02 Origami Snowflake Dasa Severova I wish, I wish, I wish I could remember where I folded this from as I would dearly love to fold another one with a more decorative paper.
2017-03-03 Vacuum Cleaner David Tittle In the midst of the wonderful array of origami models its always nice to find a lovely model of a very mundane object.
2017-03-04 Scottish Terrier Hoang Tien Quyet For me this was one of my favourite models in the whole 365. For me this is an almost perfect caricature of a "Wee Yappy Dug".
2017-03-05 Tato Flower Tomoko Tanaka I liked this, it's just simple, as well as being beautiful.
2017-03-06 Rabbit Juanfran Carrillo Nice model, but I need to pay a little more attention to the final shaping.
2017-03-07 Kingfisher Tomoko Fuse I don't know if it's just me, but this model seems to perfectly capture the intense scrutiny of a hunting kingfisher. For a model without eyes the stare is quite palpable.
2017-03-08 Short sleeve one-piece dress Tomoko Fuse Nice to find a clothing model that isn't a shirt or a kimono. Trouble is I really don't think it would suit me somehow!
2017-03-09 Long Eared Owl Lee Armstrong This was fun, but I'm not sure that foil was the right choice - this would probably be better with a quality duo paper - possibly wet folded.
2017-03-10 T-rex Fumiaki Kawahata Straightforward folding sequence but a bit disconcerting when the diagram picture for step 28 was actually inserted as step 30! Oh well, I figured it out in the end.
2017-03-11 Eight Point Kira Star Tomoko Fuse A nice bright star after a rough day.
2017-03-12 R-Deco Miyuki Kawamura Ok so once again a nice model spoiled by a poor colour choice by yours truly! Oh well.
2017-03-13 Crane Traditional This was the simplest most elegant model I could think of on the day my mother passed.
2017-03-14 Parent and Chicks Tomoko Fuse Simple models only at a time when I had a lot of things on my mind.
2017-03-15 Sakura Star Tomoko Fuse Simple star - I hadn't realised how well the pattern of the paper would serve to camouflage the joins.
2017-03-16 Modular Liquidambar Aldos Marcell Simple and beautiful.
2017-03-17 Bear Jan Willem Derksen I think this one really conveys the mass distribution of a bear's body.
2017-03-18 Segment 4 Wilma Besamusca Nice model, but sadly lacking a strong lock.
2017-03-19 Dress Tomoko Fuse Another sartorial entry from the Tomoko Fuse collection!
2017-03-20 Sheep Atsunori Muraki I remember this as the short sheep.
2017-03-21 Square box with corners Tomoko Fuse Whilst this looks like "just another Fuse box" it is actually a very simple and elegant model.
2017-03-22 Sea Horse Fumiaki Kawahata I think this one is a bit lonely - folding several would probably make for a better picture, but time is against it.
2017-03-23 Guaru Masamichi Noma Nice simple fold with a clever lock at the tail.
2017-03-24 Gold finch star Nick Robinson I really need to improve colour selections.
2017-03-25 Blue Star Hiromi Hayashi Yes I know it's called a "blue" star but I didn't have any pre cut blue pentagons to hand. Nevertheless a very nice simple flower.
2017-03-26 Boat Modelled on Swan Yoshihide Momotani This seems very similar to a model I learned years ago from Joseph Wu.
2017-03-27 Last Waltz Neal Elias This was not my first attempt at folding this model, but until I tried following Sara's wonderful video on I had never succeeded in folding it. Thanks Sara!
2017-03-28 Form #1 Philip Shen A simple but elegant form making great use of the tension of the paper.
2017-03-29 Twist box and Fuse lid Fujimoto & Tomoko Fuse This is a combination of a Fujimoto Twist box (base) and a Tomoko Fuse lid.
2017-03-30 Cherry Blossom Tine Blazek As those who followed the 365 as it went may remember, this was the time I was trying to choose a flower to use to make a bridal bouquet for a friend, and hence lots of flowers.
2017-03-31 Peach Flower Tomoko Fuse Another potential candidate.
2017-04-01 Pentagonal Rose Naomiki Sato My first, somewhat messy attempt at a "simple" pentagonal rose.
2017-04-02 Flowers Makoto Yamaguchi & Yoshihide Momotami More flower candidates.
2017-04-03 One minute rose Toshikazu Kawasaki One minute my a%$&! This little lot is the result of a good 40 minutes folding!
2017-04-04 Carnation Mitsonobu Sonobe Not sure about this one at all - probably not going to make the short list.
2017-04-05 Peony Yaeko Kubota Nice but again not for purpose - too much folding per flower and a bit too 2D for making a bouquet.
2017-04-06 Rose on a fence Minako Ishibashi I didn't think much about this one at the time, but when I asked on social media about what to teach at the 2017 OUSA convention this was the most popular choice.
2017-04-07 Agapanthus Makoto Yamaguchi Nice two piece model - folded from a triangle, the modules simple stack like cups.
2017-04-08 Iris Traditional It had to be a candidate.
2017-04-09 Star Natasha Carmen Sprung I needed a break from the flowers so decided to fold a nice star.
2017-04-10 Floral Perpetua Dasa Severova Ok so this was never a candidate for the bouquet, but it is a lovely model - shame I used such a boring piece of paper though.
2017-04-11 Fuchsia Tine Blazek I liked this, but apparently - as I learned later - the creator doesn't!
2017-04-12 Dreieckstasche Hans-Werner Guth Another popular choice for the OUSA 2017 convention and a model so simple, but so elegant that you HAVE to try this one.
2017-04-13 Frangipani Elsje Evi Binzinger Last of the initial batch of candidates.
2017-04-14 Rabbit Mask Hsi-Min Tai What is it about rabbit heads that makes so many of them just downright creepy?
2017-04-15 Origami Stent Pek Tiong Boon This was folded for a friend at work who was interested in the many uses of origami in the "real" world. He loved it!
2017-04-16 Chaos Star Matthew Hayward This is a nice model as it looks far more complex and involved than it actually is.
2017-04-17 Acucena Branca d'aqua (Water Lily) Flaviane Koti & Vera Young This would have been another candidate flower, but again it's a bit too 2D to be useful - beautiful though.
2017-04-18 Kransje Mandala Nina Ostrum What was I saying about colour choices? Another model ruined by poor paper choice.
2017-04-19 Koi Riccardo Foschi From flowers to fish - and why not - there are only so many flowers you can fold without needing to fold something else!
2017-04-20 Butterfly Flower Makoto Yamaguchi Of all the flowers I folded - this was the one the bride chose for the bouquet! Perhaps the most folding intensive of them all since every petal has to be folded twice - once to make creases and then again but inside out!
2017-04-21 Eifel Star Hans-Werner Guth A beautiful star, possible my favourite star - especially folded from 12 sheets of harmony paper all the same which creates a beautiful kaleidoscopic effect.
2017-04-22 Elephant Alexander Kurth There's definitely a trace of Dumbo in this one.
2017-04-23 Star holes Kusadama Francesco Mancini Yes it's a full 30 piece model in the 365, but then it was folded at a convention.
2017-04-24 Double Flower Loes Schakel A nicer model than the photo gives it credit for, but again it's a bit let down by a weak joint.
2017-04-25 Abstract Flower Finish 3 Meenakshi Mukerji Another lovely creation from Meenakshi and surprisingly this is not a modular model it's one uncut square!
2017-04-26 Party Ring "Tzummarum" Paula Versnick I liked this model, I just wish I had chosen brighter colours.
2017-04-27 Bird Klaus-Dieter Ennen Getting this one to stand on it's own was the real challenge - very small feet with paper that had been a bit over worked.
2017-04-28 Electra (60 piece) David Mitchell Yep, a full 60 piece in one day. However this was in the nature of an experiment to see if I could use this as a base for making a bouquet. It's possible, but not for the flower the bride had chosen.
2017-04-29 Origami Shirt Quentin Trollip What else would you have on an origami shirt, but a flapping bird?
2017-04-30 Bunny Ryan Dong This looks not too bad from this angle, but from any other angle it is definitely another entry in the "creepy rabbit" category.
2017-05-01 Woodpecker Tom Defoirdt I should probably have rotated this image 90 degrees.
2017-05-02 Flat star from lonely flower unit Dasa Severova Apparently this was the precursor to the lonely flower.
2017-05-03 Hiccius Doccius Ilan Garibi Interesting model - one touch and it springs open, but getting the tension right to hold it closed is not easy.
2017-05-04 Gift Bird Tal Cinader This one is a little strange - it's not really a box, so I can only surmise that it's intended as a label for a gift?
2017-05-05 Kangaroo Sydney French I suspect I may have done this one a bit more justice if I had noticed the paper size recommendation- I.e. 12 inch instead of 8 inch.
2017-05-06 Heart Stick Pin Daniel Stillman Lovely model, just wish I could remember this one.
2017-05-07 Piglet Philip Shen variant of a Robert Neale Model Another nice straightforward model with a nice "attitude".
2017-05-08 Flower Ligia Montoya This is not modular - it is a single sheet.
2017-05-09 Elephant Andrea Peggion Nice simple elephant but a distinct lack of landmarks in the diagrams, that said the diagrams are at least scaled properly so getting the creases in the right place is not too bad.
2017-05-10 Dual Modular Concave Rhombic Dodecahedron Maekawa Jun A bit of a mouthful of a name, and a real head scratcher of an assembly, even with a model that only has two pieces.
2017-05-11 Beauty Box Paolo Bascetta Perfectly straightforward box, but I don't know if it is my paper choice, my folding or the design that makes it tricky to get the lid stay closed - probably the folding.
2017-05-12 Hetzel Star Jennifer Hetzel A name to look out for in the future - the creator had achieved the ripe old age of 12 when she created this!
2017-05-13 Aries Robert Foord I do like these types of almost abstract models that just use the repeating pleat to create beautiful effects.
2017-05-14 Marzene Star David Petty At last a modular star where I picked the right paper. Hooray!
2017-05-15 Marigold Meenakshi Mukerji And straight away, a colour choice failure. Typical!
2017-05-16 Janneke's Butterfly An De Vries A very nice butterfly model that uses a very different technique than many other butterflies.
2017-05-17 Heart Box Robin Glynn A long fold, but a very satisfying result.
2017-05-18 Kiwi Roman Diaz Very sad to be posting such a poor attempt at a lovely model. Oh well they can't all be perfect first time out!
2017-05-19 3D Five Pointed Star David Derudas This is a great little star, simple module, strong lock, and easy to assemble.
2017-05-20 T-rex Jo Nakashima This was just a quick and simple model after a rough day.
2017-05-21 Tetrastar cube Vignesh Cumareshan Not sure about this one - the photo doesn't do it justice, but the model is a little messy when assembled - unless of course I did something wrong which is not impossible.
2017-05-22 Tractor David B Grande This is one of the first models I remember actually enjoying folding. What were you folding in October 2005?
2017-05-23 Recycling Logo Sharon Turvey I really need to fold one of these from scrap paper/junk mail.
2017-05-24 Pureland Panda Wayne Brown Not the first, and certainly not the last model here from Mr Brown who's models have an elegant simplicity about them.
2017-05-25 Cube Illusions Mick Guy I loved this model - I had seen it in the BOS magazine and thought it would be nice to fold some day. Well, this was the day and the result turned out just as I wanted.
2017-05-26 Rose of Roses Jordi Adell Nothing more or less than a simple rose model.
2017-05-27 Kanji (for the year of the Dog) Richard L Alexander Lovely little dog model with lots of scope for creating character.
2017-05-28 Jerboa Tran Trung Hieu Not the best model I've folded, but it's certainly the first time I've ever been tempted to use pliers to crease paper!
2017-05-29 Sabre Tooth Tiger (masu box) Rikki Donachie What's not to love about this one! Can you imaging a more secure place to keep treasures?
2017-05-30 Sheep Andrew Hudson Simple, straightforward and elegant folding sequence leading to an excellent model. Perfect.
2017-05-31 Bubble Fish Simon Anderson A bit too angular for my taste - I think what this fish needs is more water (and heavier paper).
2017-06-01 Robin Star 2012 Maria Sinayskaya Bit of a busy day, and consequently a simple model.
2017-06-02 Heidi Star Carmen Sprung Tis the season to be busy - today was worse than yesterday so another simple star.
2017-06-03 Gift Box shaped Envelope Shoko Aoyagi Came across this - yes three simple models in a row but this one just looked to cute to pass up.
2017-06-04 Bottle David Brill Bit more of a challenge here, looks more difficult in the book than in reality.
2017-06-05 Order of the Spanner Giles Towning What did I say earlier about finding "mundane" gems among the wild and fantastic array of models?
2017-06-06 Square Squared Ilan Garibi Nice model, but I should probably have ironed it flat before taking a picture.
2017-06-07 Turnip Box Jane Rosemarin It is what it says on the tin I guess.
2017-06-08 Black-necked Swan Patricio Kunz Tomic Another less than satisfactory result, I don't think there is anything wrong with the model, but I guess I just don't have the eye to find the perfect location for a RAT fold.
2017-06-09 Saya Carmen Sprung Whilst the paper choice might not be ideal, it certainly hides the stray creases!
2017-06-10 Handbag Linda Katt Beautiful simple model. So beautiful it became the first instance of a model repeated in the 365 - purely by chance.
2017-06-11 6 Pointed Star Maria Sinayskaya Another restful star - Ms Sinayskaya seems to be becoming my fall-back option when I have a rough day, or little time.
2017-06-12 Rabbit Mindaugas Cesnavicius This rabbit is all ears!
2017-06-13 Credit Card holder Larry Hart An oldy but a goody.
2017-06-14 Sylter stern Doris Lauinger Busy day so a straightforward model.
2017-06-15 Camel Patricio Kunz Tomic Hmm. I think Patricio and I don't seem to have the same eye for RAT folds.
2017-06-16 Throne Wayne Brown What can I say - another simple masterpiece.
2017-06-17 Tasje Met Hartensluiting Ayako Kawate This is a Heart box, but was taught to me without the heart piece.
2017-06-18 Windmill Quilt Usman Rosyidhi Would have been large and nicer if I'd had time to fold more modules.
2017-06-19 Sixteen point star Loes Schakel I think the paper choice was OK, but the interesting parts of the pattern as unfortunately all hidden.
2017-06-20 Model for Manchester Paul Jackson A lovely model by Paul in the wake of the tragedy in Manchester.
2017-06-21 Modular Cuboctahedron Dasa Severova I really wish I could remember where I found this one!
2017-06-22 Modified Saar Star Ms Saar? Again - I don't have a record of the source of this one - I suspect I learned it at the New York OMG.
2017-06-23 Burr Puzzle Barlaham Benitez A nice straightforward model but the unit is a bit strange in places.
2017-06-24 Taiwan Goldfish Robert Lang A great class at the OUSA convention.
2017-06-25 St George Cube Francis Ow Casual folding at OUSA, and yes, maybe I should have used red and white paper, but hey, I'm a Scotsman, not a Sassenach.
2017-06-26 California Poppies Meenakshi Mukerji Weird coincidence, I was just browsing and found this model a few minutes after a friend had been talking about California poppies!
2017-06-27 Penguin Box Makoto Yamaguchi Lovely little character box - tricky to fold but a beautiful result (spoiled by a poor picture).
2017-06-28 Crayon/Pencil Francesco Mancini Yes, it looks more like a rocket to me too, but Pencil is the title on the page!
2017-06-29 Treat Bag Makoto Yamaguchi Simple model - great for little gifts.
2017-06-30 Tension Dish Nick Robinson Slightly tricky to get the last leg in place, but otherwise a very straightforward model with a very pleasing result.
2017-07-01 Rockhopper Penguin Makoto Yamaguchi A nice penguin model, and definitely more distinctive than many (almost) generic penguin models.
2017-07-02 Mayur (Peacock) Meenakshi Mukerji Easy to fold, difficult to get it to balance for a photo!
2017-07-03 Wildflower Meenakshi Mukerji At last a decent paper choice - another single piece flower, and an easy one to fold.
2017-07-04 Cat Makoto Yamaguchi Could even have been called cat with attitude.
2017-07-05 Cat Bookmark Makoto Yamaguchi You may have noticed a sudden spate of Yamaguchi models - I bought two of his books in New York so lots of new material for the 365.
2017-07-06 Whale Ryan Dong I wish I could have gotten a better picture of this one it really is very cute.
2017-07-07 Solid Square based Pyramid Charles Staller It wasn't until after I had photographed and posted this one that I realised what I had done wrong - the lock was flimsy to begin with, but once I had actually followed ALL of the instructions it was a lot more solid.
2017-07-08 3D Five Pointed Star Makoto Yamaguchi A nice model, but unfortunately the only way to assemble it is with the dreaded g%#e!
2017-07-09 Little Bird Hideo Komatsu It's Komatsu, so of course it's straightforward to fold. Now if only I could find more straightforward instructions as to how to get a decent photograph.
2017-07-10 Pick-up Truck Stefan Delecat I had been keeping this one back until I had time to fold it, and it was worth the wait.
2017-07-11 Rabbit Hideo Komatsu This is a lovely model with a typically Komatsu neat and easy to follow folding sequence with never a wasted crease, and as always if you can't find more than two landmarks per crease it probably means you've done something wrong!
2017-07-12 Poodle Roman Diaz A nice but tricky folding sequence - possibly easier with a larger and wetter square.
2017-07-13 Mobile Phone holder Makoto Yamaguchi Really practical fold - perfect for a quick facetime chat.
2017-07-14 Squirrel Gen Hagiwara A nice model with some straightforward shaping.
2017-07-15 Pegasus Fumiaki Kawahata A long and complicated folding sequence which does lead to some seriously compound errors, but still worth persevering.
2017-07-16 Cat chopstick rest Makoto Yamaguchi Another nice model let down by the difficulty of getting a decent picture.
2017-07-17 Rhinoceros Quentin Trollip A long and complex fold, but well worth the effort if you have the time to spend. The only downside is that it's VERY easy to split the paper due to the number of layers.
2017-07-18 Pig Gen Hagiwara What can I say - it's a pig, simple but very effective.
2017-07-19 Dragon Hideo Komatsu I'd been meaning to fold this for a while and day 200 seemed like a good opportunity.
2017-07-20 A4 Box and rose decoration Seji Nishikawa This was a lovely simple model to fold, but only a memory now since I didn't get to keep it!
2017-07-21 Collie Koji Ouchi This was a good folding sequence, but I find the result a little lifeless.
2017-07-22 Meadow Flower Meenakshi Mukerji If all else fails fold a simple flower.
2017-07-23 Signpost Max Hulme Now where am I going?
2017-07-24 Rascally Rodent Jesus Artigas Not one of my better folds - I suspect I misinterpreted the diagrams somewhere.
2017-07-25 Owl Roman Diaz Another old favourite, a simple but expressive little owl.
2017-07-26 Acrobatic Elephant Roman Diaz This is one of those models I have been skipping over for years without folding - more fool me!
2017-07-27 Teddy Bear Quentin Trollip Looks a bit grumpy to me, a long fold but not too difficult.
2017-07-28 Peace Dove Roman Diaz A lovely model I've wanted to try for years and tonight was the night.
2017-07-29 Saintpaulia Mitsonobu Sonobe Nice model - shame about the paper choice.
2017-07-30 Penguin Robert Harbin Another very old, but very nice model.
2017-07-31 King & Queen from Chess 2010 Max Hulme One day I will find the will (and the right paper) to fold the complete chess set, but not today although it does feel like cheating to only fold 2 modules rather then the full 32.
2017-08-01 The Nonag Christiane Bettens Cutting it fine for time - this isn't a quick model to fold but I managed to post with 14 minutes to spare!
2017-08-02 Pheonix Dustin Westley I should really fold another one of these, ideally with duo (red/gold) foil, but I don't have any.
2017-08-03 Armadillo Lizard Paulo Bascetta I have no idea where the name of the model comes from, but it is a nice star.
2017-08-04 Caterpillar Jens Kober This one was strange - a nice model, but it turned out not to be the model I thought it was.
2017-08-05 Rose Box Ayako Kawate Ok yes, if I had paid more attention to the orientation of the paper I would not have ended up with a green rose with red leaves.
2017-08-06 Chick Makoto Yamaguchi Cute or what?
2017-08-07 Pomeranian Makoto Yamaguchi Perfect little dog expecting food!
2017-08-08 The Dog Makoto Yamaguchi A new book had just arrived and so I decided to fold a whole section of the book dedicated to the zodiac.
2017-08-09 The Boar Makoto Yamaguchi Simple model but has to be positioned just right to get a good photo.
2017-08-10 The Rat Makoto Yamaguchi Definitely not a rivel for the Joisel rat - especially with me folding it!
2017-08-11 The Ox Makoto Yamaguchi Many of these zodiac models use the same basic model, but it is amazing the difference just one or two different folds can make.
2017-08-12 The Tiger Makoto Yamaguchi Ok so the "striped" paper didn't quite work - still an interesting effect though.
2017-08-13 The Hare Makoto Yamaguchi This one is just cute.
2017-08-14 The Dragon Makoto Yamaguchi Straightforward, and somewhat stylised this is certainly recognisable as a dragon.
2017-08-15 The Serpent Makoto Yamaguchi Simple, and no it's not just coiled round, the coils actually join to one another.
2017-08-16 The Horse Makoto Yamaguchi It's a little more donkey than horse to me, but it works.
2017-08-17 The Sheep Makoto Yamaguchi Beautiful model.
2017-08-18 The Monkey Makoto Yamaguchi For me this is the weakest of the models - no matter how it is photographed it is hard to recognise this one as a monkey.
2017-08-19 The Cockerel Makoto Yamaguchi Having gone through the whole zodiac I now need to find something completely different for tomorrow.
2017-08-20 Twisted Star Stephen Hill Ok enough star-gazing. Oh wait!
2017-08-21 Bird Nanang Adistia A much nicer model and result than the so called "Parrot" now in the waste paper bin!
2017-08-22 Square Box Heart Tomoko Fuse Not the best paper choice - this model really deserves to be redone in a much nicer (and better quality) paper.
2017-08-23 Flower Ligia Montoya A lovely little straightforward flower from a single hexagon.
2017-08-24 Open Cube Nick Robinson A nice simple elegant model after a rough and complicated day. Just what I needed.
2017-08-25 Viking Warrior Kunihiko Kasahara This is actually an author-suggested combination of two separate models from the book.
2017-08-26 Baggi's Box Giuseppi Baggi What can I say, it's a box, easily folded, and strongly locked.
2017-08-27 Sky Star Maria Sinayskaya A lovely project for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
2017-08-28 Triggerfish John Montroll For once a paper choice that highlighted the character features of the model. The scope for introducing different "characters" is immense.
2017-08-29 Triceratops Makoto Yamaguchi Nice model but you need to be very careful not to create a nose heavy version.
2017-08-30 Cat Roman Diaz I really wish I could get the instructions for this one to stay in my head for more than a day or two. A great fold using the off-cut rectangle when you cut a square from A4.
2017-08-31 Vixen Roman Diaz One of my all time favourite models. My big disappointment however is that this is not a model I could ever teach in a class as there are too many steps that are impossible to visibly demonstrate and that are just as hard to describe.
2017-09-01 Butterfly for Anne LaVin Michael La Fosse Lovely model, taught by the lady herself!
2017-09-02 Corryvreckan Octahedron Robert Foord Great model - I don't have a great success rate with models requiring consistent curved edges but this one was a treat to fold.
2017-09-03 Bridesmaids Pump Deg Farrelly One of an almost infinite number of variations of a simple and elegant design. I wish I wish I wish I could remember how to fold this one!
2017-09-04 Star Joesephine Carmen Sprung A simple elegant star as a gentle fold after a long weekend at the 50th Anniversary convention of the British Origami Society.
2017-09-05 Santa Brian K Webb Brian managed to come along to our fortnightly Meetup group in Edinburgh and this was one of the several models he taught - albeit a slightly out of season one.
2017-09-06 Zigzag Star Jeff Beyon Another nice star that suffers somewhat from a slightly fragile lock.
2017-09-07 Finger Mouse Wayne Brown Another simple and elegant design from Mr Brown.
2017-09-08 Octagonal Star box Robin Glynn A lovely box folded from eight silver rectangles which would make it a little tricky to properly size paper for either a base or a lid which is shame.
2017-09-09 Samurai Helmet Makoto Yamaguchi I like this as a slightly outrageous piece of military millinery but in the red and gold is really stands out.
2017-09-10 Origamido Butterfly Michael La Fosse Had to resort to a standby tonight as for the first time I discovered at the last minute that today's would be model was one I folded a few months ago! This is still my favourite butterfly model.
2017-09-11 Long Tailed Bird Roman Diaz This was a model I had tried before and could never get quite right, however I finally figured out what I had been doing wrong all along.
2017-09-12 Rose Leaves Naomiki Sato I ran out of time to make the stem, but thought the five petals worked well in this configuration. A great model, and the very nature of the folding sequence lends itself very well to all leaves being just marginally different to get a more natural appearance. At least that's my theory.
2017-09-13 The Dresden Bowl David Mitchell Simple enough to fold, but it took quite a few attempts to get a photo to show inside and out, and the tension driven curved sides.
2017-09-14 You ain't nothing but a hound dog Nick Robinson This looked fun, and it was - Nick even commented I had managed the tail from the somewhat vague diagrams!
2017-09-15 Sparrow Roman Diaz Folded from a small square of the lovely roll of Origamido paper that was a very generous gift from Anne LaVin on her recent adventure in Scotland. Thank heavens it worked, I would have hated having to post a picture of an Origamido boulder! I missed it at the time, but when compiling the list of links to the database I discovered that I had managed to fold the same model twice. Mea culpa!
2017-09-16 Bright Star Kunihiko Kasahara I think the polite term is "a variation on" - nonetheless it came out fairly well.
2017-09-17 Wren Roman Diaz One of my favourite little birds, simple, elegant nice to fold, and almost guaranteed to stand without (too much) tweaking. Unfortunately due to the simultaneous sinks etc this isn't always an easy one to teach.
2017-09-18 Rat Eric Joisel A poor quality fold of one of the most famous models of all.
2017-09-19 The Enigma Bowl David Mitchell I really like this model, but unfortunately the folding sequence is very long and intricate so it's not one I fold very often.
2017-09-20 Flycatcher Noboru Miyajima I like the model, but somehow the combination of the shaping, stance, and the colour of the paper makes this one look a bit mournful.
2017-09-21 Flower Motif B Tetsuya Gotani A golden star for a young friends birthday.
2017-09-22 Baby Rabbit Javier Vivanco Finally a rabbit model for the cute category rather than the creepy one!
2017-09-23 Gift Box Xiaoxian Huang A nice box - I especially appreciate the "ribbon" being the same width on both box and lid - very clever design.
2017-09-24 Half Skeletal Regular Octahedron Jun Maekawa Another tricky to photograph model, and for those who are wondering, yes, this is a one piece model.
2017-09-25 Tinke Star Marrigie Bernard Nice model, shame about the poor quality of folding.
2017-09-26 Camel Daniela Carboni A little too stylised for me.
2017-09-27 Rose bud and Calyx Naomiki Sato For all that it's a pentagonal rose the bud is MUCH easier than the full rose.
2017-09-28 Dimetrodon Robert Lang Now this, boys and girls, is what happens when you try to fold a Robert Lang model for the first time with a too small square of the wrong type of paper!
2017-09-29 Modular Origami Star Enrica Dray A very nice star from an amazingly simple module. Eight pieces each with only five folds, all landmarked, a simple but very strong lock, and even the last piece is straightforward to connect. Does it get any better than this?
2017-09-30 Blutenkreisel Carmen Sprung A lovely model, but unfortunately a little too dark a paper to get a reasonable picture.
2017-10-01 Owl Roman Diaz I really like this model - I have a vague suspicion that this is one of the first, if not THE first model I ever taught (formally) at a convention. For those wondering the paper is a very soft, but wonderfully textured sheet of origamido.
2017-10-02 Yin and Yang Daniela Carboni I needed something straightforward after a busy Monday.
2017-10-03 Black Faced Sheep Tony O'Hare Another model I had overlooked for years. Shame on me! This is a simple and elegant model.
2017-10-04 Nacho's Fish Ng Boon Choon Impossible to tell from the photo, but this is actually an action model. Hold the tail between finger and thumb and rub them together to make the head twist back and forth.
2017-10-05 Cotton Bowl David Wires Another self tensioning model that would probably benefit from paper a little less bland.
2017-10-06 Flying Bird Yoshimasa Tsuruta I'm coming to the conclusion that diagrams, and even photographs are not suitable mediums to convey the quality of a model - you really have to fold some models in order to properly appreciate them.
2017-10-07 Owl Nightwatch Kay Kraschewski This is just gorgeous. Another excellent video from Sara.
2017-10-08 Dove Hoang Tien Quyet That's it. You're all sacked. Fancy no-one noticing that day 161 and day 281 were both (originally) the same Handbag by Linda Katt. Honestly. I thought people were paying more attention than that! Seriously though, my apologies, and to make up for it here's a bonus entry to replace 281.
2017-10-09 Turbine Andrew Hudson Great shape, but unfortunately I'm not great at getting consistent curves in a model - with them, and possibly in a shiny paper, this would be stunning.
2017-10-10 Box with locked Handle John Marshall I needed something simple after a day like today.
2017-10-11 Mouse Akira Yoshizawa Just goes to show how much of a genius the creator was, when even a poor attempt in simple kami can have such presence of character.
2017-10-12 Flower Falk Brito Hey - I got the colour choice spot on for once. Now, if I can just solve the inconsistencies in my folding, I might be able to get somewhere with this origami lark!
2017-10-13 Bouddha Viviane Berty Wow! Great model, and two for two on the colour choice - I must be on some kind of roll here!
2017-10-14 Yellow Henchmen Tong Lui Nice Idea, but getting the shape to hold long enough to photograph is more difficult than folding the model.
2017-10-15 Owl Beth Moore Johnson What can I say: simple, elegant, and just realistic enough to trick your brain into seeing an Owl. Perfect.
2017-10-16 Whirlpool Meenakshi Mukerji It's always nice to have the time to fold a kusudama and what better time than when on holiday.
2017-10-17 Triceratops Fumiaki Kawahata I like this one, it has a bit of a tendency to turn into a rug, but I think a little water in strategic locations will stiffen things up.
2017-10-18 Wild Boar Yoo Tae Yong Nice model, and the smaller you fold it, the cuter it gets.
2017-10-19 Highland Cow Beth Moore Johnson Beth created this model when we invited her to the first Edinburgh BOS convention, but I have never succeeded in folding what I would call an acceptable version. Oh well I guess I need to keep trying!
2017-10-20 The Yellow Bird Satoshi Kamiya Yes ok it's white! I didn't have any suitable yellow paper at the time! I still recovering from the shock of being able to compel a Kamiya model that isn't fit only for kindling.
2017-10-21 Celebration numbers Paula Versnick Happy Birthday to me!
2017-10-22 Pig Quentin Trollip Definitely an in-your-face type of character here.
2017-10-23 Dall Sheep Rui Roda Hmm, Great model, but as for the folding - in the words of many of my teachers "Can do better!"
2017-10-24 Happy Good Luck Bat Michael La Fosse An old favourite to kick off the Halloween season.
2017-10-25 Scream Quentin Trollip A nice model that is remarkably simple to fold, although I suspect the shaping would be much easier in foil.
2017-10-26 Flying Witch Nick Robinson Beautiful, simple, elegant. Nuff said.
2017-10-27 Witch Makoto Yamaguchi A great little character, but made up of several pieces of different sizes.
2017-10-28 Jack O'Lantern Swapnil Das I think there as many origami designs for this model as you see variations in home carved pumpkins.
2017-10-29 Mask Tomoko Fuse One of many great masks from Tomoko's book.
2017-10-30 Ghost Oriol Esteve A great model, but one that needs to be mounted or hung up to give the right impression - I should probably have photoshopped out the mount. Oh well.
2017-10-31 Spider P D Tuyen I learned this from Assia at the BOS 40th Anniversary convention in Cambridge and haven't stopped folding it since.
2017-11-01 Metamorphosis David Mitchell Lovely model but a tricky one to photograph - especially in that paper!
2017-11-02 Alexander Aztec Swallowtail Michael La Fosse Another of Michaels's wonderful butterflies.
2017-11-03 Kapo Romanenenko Natalya Valerievna A long day travelling for work and then an extremely tricky assembly is not a good combination. Oh well it's done and it's not after midnight so I guess I got away with it. Phew!
2017-11-04 Sheep Beth Moore Johnson I've wanted to try this again for a while and today turned into the day. A great model, and no doubt by the time I've folded an entire flock I might even get it right.
2017-11-05 Five and Four Eric Gjerde I don't often fold tessellations since I can never get a neat enough grid, but I had to have at least one in the 365 so here it is.
2017-11-06 Baseball Cap Paul Jackson Had to take my hat off to a friend who just ran the NY marathon in 3:58. Well done!
2017-11-07 Nagano Tato Box Paula Versnick Just one of a whole series of boxes Paula designed for squares, pentagons, hexagons, etc.
2017-11-08 Owl Dimitris Dalas Nice 2D stylised owl.
2017-11-09 Toaster Ryan Macdonell Love this - it's such an unexpected subject for an origami model, but it just works.
2017-11-10 Origami Trasure Chest Robin Glynn Not the simplest of models and I appear to have missed a couple of creases to form the planking on the body of the box. Oh well, better luck next time.
2017-11-11 Rememberance Day Poppy Tony O'Hare They shall not grow old, as we who are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them.
2017-11-12 Double Compartment Box David Brill I should probably have included a photo of the box open to show the two compartments.
2017-11-13 I Love You Ujang Karnadi What else can I say?
2017-11-14 Casiat Ilusion Roman Diaz A charming and very simple model indeed.
2017-11-15 Star Icosahedron Evan Zodl Lovely unit spoiled by me folding with far too tough a paper to allow a proper join.
2017-11-16 Gift Box aka Bisected Tetrahedron Nick Robinson This was definitely a box day.
2017-11-17 The Batarang Marc Sigalovsky One for the movie fans I guess.
2017-11-18 Macaw Vladimir Serov Lots of folding. A good model, but one that needs far mode time than I was able to give it - it would also benefit from thinner, and probably wet paper.
2017-11-19 REM Star Rachel Katz Maybe I have got this paper choice sussed out after all.
2017-11-20 Puppy Julio Eduardo Condori A nice simple model with lots of scope for character tweaks.
2017-11-21 Minotaur Head Gilad Aharoni That's definitely a face you don't want to meet in a dark alley!
2017-11-22 Mouse Yong Ma Another little mouse, I like the 3D shape and the tail, but I really need to work on those ears!
2017-11-23 Turkey Anita Barbour What else was I supposed to fold on Thanksgiving!
2017-11-24 Cathedral Window in Origami Jannie van Schuylenburg This is a great modular model I first folded at the OSN Convention at Mennorode a few years ago - there's even a variant that will allow loops to hang this up as a tapestry.
2017-11-25 Horse Roman Diaz Looking at this I think I should probably have raised the tail a bit more to convey a better impression of speed/movement.
2017-11-26 Tri Horned Dragon Chuya Miyamoto This was a tough one - I had tried this a few weeks ago, but couldn't get it right, but thankfully our local mini meeting managed to point out what I was doing wrong!
2017-11-27 Basket Verdi Adams I like the model, but I'm not convinced about the visible raw edges.
2017-11-28 Origami Dragon Mark Orme This was a weird day - I remembered to fold a model, but I was in bed before I realised I had forgotten to post a picture!
2017-11-29 Blue Shark John Montroll I remember this as one of the earliest more complicated models I tried when I first started folding, and I'm happy to say that todays version came out considerably better than my early attempts.
2017-11-30 Walrus Robert Lang Nice model, but I wish I had used a better quality paper.
2017-12-01 Boots Makoto Yamaguchi Now to hope I have enough Christmas themed models for advent!
2017-12-02 Six pointed Star Paul Jackson I was delighted to finally find a use for this holographic paper.
2017-12-03 Santa Claus Jun Maekawa The first of several appearances Santa is likely to make this month.
2017-12-04 Bell Paul Jackson A nice simple model to finish a complicated day!
2017-12-05 Spiral Christmas Tree Xiaoxian Huang I can't believe I forgot to post this until after midnight. Too busy packing for the Italian convention.
2017-12-06 Xmas Wreath Loes Schakel It's always nice when you can find a model simple enough to be folded and photographed on a plane.
2017-12-07 Simple Tree Makoto Yamaguchi It is what it says on the tin - a simple tree.
2017-12-08 Frame box Santa Makoto Yamaguchi I'm thinking this looks more like Santa emerging from a chimney.
2017-12-09 Christmas Tree Mark Bolitho A lovely simple 3D Christmas tree.
2017-12-10 Snowflake Dennis Walker Not perfect, but I think this is my best attempt so far.
2017-12-11 Two Fold Santa Paula Versnick I have described a few models as simple and elegant, but can they ever be simpler or more elegant than this? A perfect example of efficient folding and just what I needed after a nightmare day of travelling.
2017-12-12 Flower 3 Francesco Guarnieri I like this model - simple, clean lines and above all simple.
2017-12-13 Angel Rafal Sabat This was not a good day. I folded this in the Accident and Emergency unit whilst waiting for a CT scan having had what turned out to be a minor stroke the night before.
2017-12-14 Bauble Unknown Would love to know who created this.
2017-12-15 Santa Tetrahedral Box Makoto Yamaguchi These look great hanging on a Christmas Tree.
2017-12-16 Holly Leaf and Berries Viviane Berty I know the berries are a bit squished, but I think this is a great model.
2017-12-17 Star Paul Jackson Twinkle twinkle.
2017-12-18 Icy Star Unknown Apologies for the poor picture - trying to get contrast on a tracing paper model with only a bright light rather than a light box is a little tricky. Again I would love to know who created this model.
2017-12-19 Santa Claus Hideo Komatsu It's that man again!
2017-12-20 Candy Shaped Box Makoto Yamaguchi Ok I know what it's called, but I'm fairly sure everyone will agree that this is really a Christmas cracker (in more ways than one).
2017-12-21 Jolly Santa Marcia Joy Miller If ever there was a man who needed a good sit down.
2017-12-22 Christmas Box Tomoko Fuse? At least that's what I'm calling it, I think, but cannot confirm that it's by Tomoko Fuse. It's a great Box since you can fold it at any dimensions by starting with a rectangle that is one length plus four heights by two widths plus four heights. A special bonus is that it has no visible creases on any surface, inside or out.
2017-12-23 Tree Makoto Yamaguchi Brilliant tree, but I'm going to have to learn to fold really really small models in order to decorate it.
2017-12-24 Rudolph Rednose Rikki Donnachie A great model, and now a part of my Christmas decoration box. All together now .... Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
2017-12-25 Reindeer Sled Presents and Santas David Brill An idea that has been in the back of my mind for a while, but getting a decent picture was incredibly difficult.
2017-12-26 Poinsettia and Leaver Meenakshi Mukerji On the home straight now. This is a very simple but beautiful model with absolutely minimal visible creases.
2017-12-27 Perforated Octahedron Paulo Bascetta Another model with almost no visible creases, but I probably should have used smaller paper - this one is huge!
2017-12-28 Foxy Fox John Szinger Now that's what I call an alert animal - sharp and focussed.
2017-12-29 Sturoyya Star Usman Rosiyighi I can't believe I'm only two posts away from finishing this!
2017-12-30 Lion Hideo Komatsu Coming close to the end of the 365 I decided the last two models should be a bit more complex. The lion is a long fold, but not a particularly difficult one - especially with the clear simple folding sequence laid out by Komatsu.
2017-12-31 Unicorn Roman Diaz And finally another long, but not too difficult fold to finish off what has been a challenging year! Hooray! This marks the end of my Fold 365 challenge and I would be remiss not to take this opportunity to thank all of the creators, authors, convention teachers and youtube stars who have made this possible. I would also like to thank all of my friends both at home and around the world for all the help support, likes, comments and yes occasional nagging that have kept me on the straight and narrow.
