I was at a cafe with my girlfriend (a couple months back) and folded the napkin into a crane without thinking much of it. She absolutely loved it, for some reason, and gave it a name and likes to put it in her pocket so she can carry it around with her. I've tried to make her some better things but I get frustrated and fail either due to unclear instructions or lack of skill. I hope I can give her more cool stuff.
A noble and wholesome cause. Good on you, Anon.
Wholesome af. I recommend practicing one thing, that way, you'll get better over time. Once you master that, work on practicing another one. Would recommend that you get some books too.

this is fair warning that me and three scientists will be coding a King Virus to take on the banks for fun. #good godd # trust who # for the fun ## cya wouldnt wanna bleed yah

Origami House has a new book coming out later this month: Works of Katsuta Kyohei.

Only 13 models unfortunately, several of which have already been published in Tanteidan Convention/ Magazine, but some good stuff:

Random question from a newbie interested in origami:

What paper size is better? 4 inches or 6 inches?
2 inches is best, always

Anyone here have any experience with paper scale model books? Basically papercraft but they print it all out for you.
I'm into plastic scale model ships but I kind of want to try a paper one since the subjects are very niche.
Examples of publishers are GPM, Orel or HMV.

Bros I need your love of origami to wingman me.
I'm a 20 y/o kid, never had much experience with dating but I've been close to this girl for a while.
She really loves origami but I had almost no experience with it. I plan to confess to her by making an origami with a hidden cheesy line like "will you be my girlfriend?". But I'm stuck on what kinda origami would work

Currently I'm planning to make a rose like in this vid and thankfully I succeeded, would probably write the message on the back of the paper and have her unfold the whole flower. What do you guys think?

I'm completely open to any suggestions here but if possible I would greatly greatly appreciate any nice flower origami that's not too difficult to make but easy to unfold. Thanks so much guys

I think its cute and a good idea. Go get that girl
I personally think these roses are a little better but your call.
Thanks man I'm really nervous because no one was answering, I tried a bunch of roses including the one you linked and I plan to just make them all and give them to her. Sadly I find that many of them were way too difficult for me.

By the way would it be better if I use bigger paper? I'm currently using 20x20 double sided color.

I´m actually very new to origami too so I can´t help with that too much, but I think that the size they tell you works best because they did choose it for a reason.
Even if the origami is not perfect, I am sure she will appreciate the effort, and probably find the attempts cute. :)
Wonder how it went for anon. I’m not a /po/ native and just wander here from time to time, I love this place, I can’t think of anywhere else where you can see so much passion almost frozen in time but moving slowly, like a glacier. Anyways, hope he sees this and updates us.
why you don't join ? you do not like to bend ? it will be fun :)
