Adams, Sara
Difficulty Level: 
High intermediate
Model type: 
Paper ratio: 


That's incredible! I'm still an amatuer folder, but maybe one day I will reach this level! How long did that take you the first time around?

thank you so much for the video this was so fun to make and i think mine turned out pretty good

What paper did you use in the video?

I used some low-quality wrapping paper. It's definitely not recommended for this model (or any other), but it worked well enough for demonstration purposes.

Hi Sara... Was just wondering if double tissue will be good for this model...

Yes, double tissue will work well with this model.

-- Sara

what paper is that?
at the centerfold "Doc" gave my brother a twister that had the same "plastic" look

Actually in this video I use a kind of laminated paper that was sold as wrapping paper. It wasn't very good to fold with, let me tell you that. However, I do have other laminated paper that you can fold with quite well. (I cannot tell you a source, as I got this as a present.)

is it possible to use kami for this model?

Yes, absolutely! But I'd suggest for your first try to use something larger than 15cm / 6in.

-- Sara

In the second part at 6:03 -- 6:04 the model magically changes, I'm supposing that those are reverse folding.

By the way I'm a huge fan :D.

Can u make a video with all ur books?

You are aware of the fact that I have over 100 origami books, plus booklets and magazines? :)
(Not to mention all the non-origami related books I have...)
