FAQs about origami

Where do I begin with origami and how can I find easy models?

Try browsing the board for guides, or other online resources listed below, for models you like and practice folding them.

A great way to begin at origami is to participate in the Let’s Fold Together threads >>>/po/lft - open up the PDF file and find a model you like, work on it, and discuss or post results.

Closest sort of thing I can think of that's already here is >>562249, though that might not be the theme you're after.
Then there's >>569196 though that might be a bit kiddie for you. Just throwing out ideas and stuff that might give you a better idea for what you want or stuff that's good enough.

You can find instructions and books for just about anything almost anywhere online, and the kind of paper doesn't matter, just about anything works.

In remembrance of the last paper planes thread, which just so happened to be one of the oldest boards on 4chan that passed away quite recently, this thread will serve as its successor. Hopefully this thread won't be prematurely bumped into oblivion like the last one did.

Anyways, this thread could serve as a sort of "Paper Planes General". Feel free to post your designs, .pdf files, and folding instructions. Anything goes as long as it flies or at least looks like its supposed to.

X-acto knife and pva.

What would the easiest Pokemon origami figures be? I guess Porygon is pretty easy and actually looks the part too, but now I'm curious if you guys have any other suggestions.
>>
>570854
If we're talking Papercraft, Porygon is first, followed by pretty much anything (almost) completely convex or made up of simple shapes. I made KlingKlang once (and thus the entire Kling family in the process) and it was really easy. Round mons like Exeggcute, Gastly or Hoppip are easy too.
If we're talking strictly origami then I don't really know. Do you want to stick to 3D, or 2D is ok too, OP?
>>
>>570854
The Roggenrolla family will be about as difficult as Porygon here

I just randomly came to this board and I've never done anything similar. I can tel that your image is supposed to be a woman in a dress (or a man if you're a queer). Am I autistic? I have a measured IQ of 155 so its possible.

Hello /po/.

This may be a kind of a weird thread here, but I think that if anyone can help me, it is you guys.

I am an entomologist, and I need a reliable way to make beetle cards, just like the one pictured here. These cards are used to mount really small specimens, and are used in three sizes, ranging from 5x9mm to 10x20mm.

I thought about using punches or paper cutting dies, but they can't be made with these little round corners. My currently idea is to cut it with a guillotine, but I have not found a way to round these corners (radius of around 0.5mm).

Can you guys help me?

Thank you very much, and sorry for being kinda off-topic.

Thank you both, these are both great ideas. I will try it out. I don’t know anything about papercraft or origami, so sorry for the unrelated topic. I thought it would be at least somewhat related.

Have you looked at corner rounders from scrapbooking craft shops?

Here's a photo of a cheap one purchased from a China based eBay merchant sent postage free for a couple of dollars to Canada.

This thread still has a birthday hat and I want to preserve that fact.

.My face when i come on /po/ and an image of one of my specimens is on the board....
Anyway British Entofag here,
I buy my cards from the Czech Republic, the one pictured is from a site called Paradox, even after postage i think they are affordable, high quality cards at standardised sizes.

Considering The amount of time spent preparing specimens, its not really worth spending all that extra time trying to save a few pence
>>
An alternative to paper or card which stains and tears.. is to buy polystyrene which is available for displaying a nature gallery...
Google A5 polystyrene sheets or A4/A6 Plastisheets..enable your location and results should not be too costly

I knew what post you were linking before I hovered my mouse over the link. /po/ thread of 2018, that is.
>>
>>570327
I was torn up about it this last week, but honestly the only reason I was mad was because she told me she loved me then backtracked and said she only "thought" she was. I can't when people lie about that stuff. I told her I loved her first, and explicitly said "I don't expect you to say it back, but only say it if you mean it. You know when you know." After she broke up with me I told her to never talk to me again lol and blocked her on everything.

I feel much better now though anyway. I might post some "romantic" origami after new years eve. Thanks for reading my blog

>>570331
Jesus. Hope that guy is ok.

Thanks guys Hadi Tahir has yielded to requests and uploaded a video although not strictly every line as c.p a variation with the four borders..
