Hey /po/. I don't normally come on here but I wanted to share with you my story about paper cranes.

I started learning to fold cranes when I was a teenager. I fell in love with the exercise and have folded many countless cranes throughout my life (I'm 24). The older I got the more I liked them, and the more I learned about them. What really made me obsessed with the symbol of the crane is the anime ghost in the shell stand alone complex 2nd gig. If you really want a very amazing and elaborite anime that has to do with oragami watch ghost in the shell SAC then SAC 2nd gig. There is a very sad love story about a boy and a girl and their relationship to paper cranes.

I know that asians have a way to fold a perfect crane and there are videos on how to do it on youtube but I never looked them up. I wanted the challenge of learning how to fold a perfect crane on my own. After countless cranes I still slowly learn better technique. It's an intimate relationship between your hands and the paper when you've folded them so many times.

Often times no matter how well I fold a crane if I look at it very closely I notice some flaw. A malformed tail or beak. A misshapen abdomen. A body too big or small. I imagine what this crane would feel if it were a real live crane and were born with such a defect. And I think maybe god is like the crane maker and no matter how many people he makes he just can't prevent his huge hands from making tiny mistakes. And it makes me more comforted knowing I have been created with mistakes.

Now wherever I go I carry a stack of stickey notes and while I set on my computer, wait at the doctor's office, study at school, or am in class, I just start folding crane after crane after crane. Normally I throw them all away but if I really like someone I will give them a crane.

I have read that in japan it is a belief that if you fold 1000 cranes you get a wish. Some say ten thousand cranes. And there is a very sad story about this. Cont.

I do the same thing, I find folding them calming whenever I'm anxious, it's something else to focus on, I got a stack of origami paper at home, I like your idea with the sticky notes though, I'll probably do that too
Wonderful, origami is delicate tradition and I'm glad to see you enjoy it, paper cranes are nice, but it's good to have a change in products.
My story was I once mailed a crane to go a friend of mine named kanye, I called the crane crane (his last name) while a few days later he sent me a dragon that was a foot fall made from origami, turned out, he was extremely talented at this.
It's very possible. Just look for Tallship sailing for renewable transport companies.

A beautiful story anon. I've also been folding cranes, for around 15 years now, although I've only folded hundreds, not thousands. Something about it fills me with happiness, turning a worthless piece of paper, a candy wrapper, a sticker tag into something which brings others joy. The best part of it is after you finish and someone notices your crane, you give it to them and they pull on the tail to flap its wings after you show how to do it (most people I've met weren't familiar with the cranes). I haven't made them since some time, but I think I'll continue just to give them to various people even if they keep the cranes only for a few seconds. After reading the story I felt inspired and made one from peach coke bottle wrapping as it was closest to me. This one is for you anon.

Feel free to post your collections, your works in progress, or your star hordes! You can find lots of inspiration in the old thread (http://boards.4chan.org/po/thread/515222) Remember /PO/ is a slow board so please don't bump the thread. I created the last thread over two years ago. Here's to two more.

I bought strips of paper specifically cut for paper star folding. Literally just search "paper star strips" on Amazon. It never went well for me when I tried cutting my own strips.

I've changed several curved lines in templates to straight lines, where it doesn't influence the function. It's easier to cut and glue straight lines, obviously. Also, look at the teeth of the gears. They have new flaps design, so the flaps are bigger and easier to glue. This cuts time on glueing gears significantly
It looks like the gears only have one half of the teeth covered, on alternating sides?

yes, this was necessary to allow larger flaps. the original flaps design was a PITA to cut and glue. Larger tabs can be glued to the front, much faster and easier. To have a clean look you just need a second layer of them on the front side (didn't do it here, as this was an experimental build).
This thread is too low. Bumping cause I don't want to lose it. Will start making it soon.
Please don't bump threads too quickly on /po/. It takes around 2 months for a thread to drop to page 10 here. The last post (>>572593) was barely a month old.

So sad to see WWG go. And worse is the fact that the Terrainlinx system is going to die with them.

It's a shame nobody else is picking up their banner, the system mixed simplicity with pleasing depth. And it's not like they're around to try and defend their copyright or patent or anything.

hey you still have verus? could you send me a link? auchvits2 @ gmail com
Alright you guys. The website is up less and less often with time, so I'm gonna make you guys a deal. If there are any TLX sets not included in the 03 archive, let me know, and I'll purchase them before the site goes down. And if there should ever be a time the website goes down for good, I'll upload them here, so they aren't lost for good.

He is on twitter, but he locked down his account so unless you followed before you can't see it. sansogyorai00
He's recently joined Fantia which is like Japanese Patreon, he hasn't posted much but there is a free option to follow his PAPERCRAFT work. https://fantia.jp/fanclubs/14783

It also looks like he's reactivated some of the old videos on his Youtube https://m.youtube.com/user/sansogyorai00

Maybe someone can rip those proof of concept videos before they disappear into the abyss again.

Your photo is of a single sheet origami star, for which instructions are available at:
There are many 4-point modular origami stars, some from 2 sheets of paper, some from 4. Here's a video to a 4-point star from 2 squares, by Paper Kawaii:
actually, I figured it out. Thanks

Can you show me how to make a 3d one?

They seem to be experimenting a bit with the release.
Nice, fun and educational. Very good idea for kids.

Maybe slightly too pricey.

Hey /po/, I'm tying to fold like a napkin/bandana type of cloth to wear as an accessory in my belt but I'm having a bit of trouble doing sort of a 3-fold and I was wondering if any of you had any experience or a tip in properly folding one. So in the image (sorry for the shitty paint) i want to fold the napkin (left of image) in either one of the two 3-folds (right side, doesnt mather which one) and have an easy way of tuckin the backpart into my belt/pants. Any help at all would be appreciated

Does anyone have this model?
