Support WWF or Sea Seapard if you can. Shame on you South Korea :(
Derived from dislike of commercial whaling and the depths of my mind comes a morbidly cute depiction.

So I decided to embark on this epic adventure of RSI. It will test my patience and may possibly drive me insane, but the goal will be worth it. Its a Senbazuru, A Thousand Paper Cranes.
I’ve decided to make them small, you know because the challenge isn’t tough enough.
I’ve got pale blue and green 60x60mm squares of 50gsm paper. So its nice and thin, perfect for tight small folds.
I’ll decide on a pattern later, but a candy cane swirl would be great.
So, 1 down. 999 to go.
My sister likes elephants. Its her birthday soon, so I decided instead of buying card, I’d make an origami elephant.
OH HOW FOOLISH WAS I.
I’ve gone through 3 different designs of elephant, each resulting in a scrunched up piece of paper which was thrown across the room..
..Until I settled on this design.
I actually managed to complete the model.. but even after 4 tries, things still didn’t end up looking the same.
The final one is pretty good. I’m not 100% happy with the tail (the hind leg part should be flush with the body), but everything else turned out great.
For the moment thats the final one. I’ll have another go tomorrow using the orange card stock.. its thicker paper, which makes folding harder, but the the end result will be stronger and the colour is better.
Why can’t my sister like llamas instead…
