Origami Supreme !!!

“Origami” is a Japanese art of folding paper to make some shapes of animals, humans and a lot of other stuff. I was about six or seven when my mom gave me my first origami book. The book was about dinosaurs, and it amazed me a lot. But I was still too young for it; therefore I needed help from my mom. I still remember the days that my mom, my cousin Minh and me gathered together to figure out how to do it. It had a lot of fun, until my mom and cousin Minh gave up. Only me left to try alone, until the day I achieved it. Origami since then became one for my favorites, especially folding dinosaurs.

It was such a long time from now, and my old hobby once again revives. Let me show you some of them. Hope you’d like them.

Note: ALL of them are John Montrol's inventions; I JUST made them based on books.
ALL of them were made by only one uncut-square paper. :)

Part 1: DINOSAURS

STRUTHIOMIMUS
(It was hard to make him stand only on his legs :D)

KUEHNEOSAURUS

ELASMOSAURUS (he is little Pi-su in one Doraemon manga, remember? ^^)

RHAMPHORYNCHUS (one of my favorites- I can memorize folding it)
(the stick on his back is not included)

DIMETRODON

BRACHIOSAURUS
(I memorize him also)

TYRANNOSAURUS
(he doesn’t look so scary, right? :D)

APATOSAURUS
Some other ones. They are more intense to fold.
TANYSTROPHEUS
(He is the longest – even longer than the original paper!!!)

TRICERATOPS

STEGOSAURUS
Yeah, that’s it. :)

Special thanks for mom and miss Ngoc.

And THANK ALL of YOU for watching. Will be CONTINUED.

  3. Is this my stegosaurus? What do you do with all of these when you are done? Do you have a display case somewhere like an art museum?

  4. Of course not. I made you a new one every time! Origami stuffs get worn out quickly so I dont store them.
