Got a lot of Post-its? Need a new paperweight? Just have too much time at the office doing nothing?
If you answered yes to any of these three questions, the Post-it Peacock could be for you!
3D Origami, Golden Venture Origami, Chinese Paperfolding, whatever you choose to call it, is an intensive form of origami
which involves creating many pieces and assembling them together
to create shapes, animals, flowers, and much more. To learn about the history, please see my first 3D origami guide
3D Origami is notorious for its time-consuming nature. Sculptures can require thousands of pieces
, like this 1300-piece peacock made by a blind man
. But some of us just don’t have that kind of time, energy, patience, or amount of colored paper!
This sculpture only requires 122 pieces total
, and is a great beginner sculpture. 122 pieces can be folded easily in under an hour
(for me, it takes just 30 minutes!), and the materials are easily obtained in any office or stationary aisle.
Note: In this Instructable, as like my others, I will use white paper to denote when a step has ended so the colors do not distract.
