Ah, heh, ok. I understand it.If it calls for scissors glue or tape, it shouldn't be called origami. But hey, it's up to you to find the duct-tape-less way! :D

I wasn't referring to this one in specific, but in general. Anyway, I didn't get to finish it and gift it, because I then found a paper toy for valentine's :3 But I think I will do this sooner or later, cause I have plenty of draft paper (that will eventually go to recycling) and some ones need to take care of all that paper :D
