Unit Origami.

This photo is really old.  From the film camera era (revealing how ancient I am? shhhhh……).  Anyway, I made this pair of unit-origami swans for MS.  Folding numerous triangular pieces wasn’t fun, but the assembling process was!  I was surprised that I could follow the seemingly complex instructions and diagrams.  Maybe I am not totally spatially challenged (a running joke) afterall.

Bad news though…not long after this photo was taken, they crumbled and now they’re just a puddle of triangular pieces…I haven’t had time to fix it up (we’re talking years here).  MS was certain they weren’t accidentally bumped into or something, but that’s up for debate…

  1. I remember those! Used to see them made out of Chinese $1 notes. Oh I cant wait to see your Malaysian travel scrapbook – pls finish by my Sept holiday lol

  2. Wow make them from notes? That’d cost a lot :) I only fold ‘shirts’ and boxes out of notes. Oh the scrapbook is progressing s-l-o-w-l-y.

    1. Hi, I don’t have it with me anymore but there are plenty of instructions on the Internet! For example I found this

      That’s for folding the units. I just searched “Unit Origami triangle” in google. You can try related terms for the assembly depending on what you want to make. Hope that helps a little bit.
