Bear with Butterfly Wings - Anna Kastlunger

Sorry we're late. Communication breakdown.

This week we have diagrams for something a bit more whimsical, Anna Kastlunger's Bear with Butterfly Wings

Our 7th week already! This week we've got something a little unusual for you-- but it'll take some work of your own to get the full potential out of this diagram. It looks like a diagram for a single model, but in fact I've given you the tools to create any regular polygon from a rectangular sheet of paper, by applying the Fujimoto approximation to angles instead of line segments.

So without further ado, here are the diagrams:

Hearts for V-Day

Benjamin Parker's Tower Tessellation

Valentine's Day is this weekend, so it's time for some hearts! This week features three works. All created by me (Jared).

First, we have diagrams for a Pureland Diamond with a Seamless Heart. I created it just last night.
Pureland Diamond with a Seamless Heart - Jared Needle

Next we have the CP for a heart I designed back in 2003. It's fairly simple, but does have some higher level moves (closed-ish sinks)

Finally we have the focus of this week's post. It's the crease pattern for my Heart Card. I designed it in 2004, based on the heart. I am extremely proud of it still. It's a heart-shaped card, and it opens.

Have fun folding, and we would love to see you fold the Heart Card, along with any other Origami Weekly works you've folded. Don't hold back on the photos!

Tower Tessellation

Benjamin Parker's Tower Tessellation

Welcome back to our fifth week! For this week we have our first tessellation of the year. Benjamin Parker agreed to make diagrams for his Stacked Pleats and Tower Tessellation as this week's main post.

Diagrams here: Tower Tess - Ben Parker

Tower Tess, Logarithmic Version

Coincidentally, this is a molecule that I had made a variation on, so I've posted that variation as a CP to go along with it.
