Giant origami – first attempt!

Following on from last week’s post on origami and art (yes! I actually followed up :D) I decided to have a go at some larger origami models. I have a few old rolls of wall paper which I thought would be ideal for this, as the paper is thick and sturdy; note for future reference though, take time in cutting as precise a square as possible.

Starting with something I’d made before seemed like the best plan, so I folded a Kabuto (Samurai helmet):

Then transformed it into a goldfish!
