Should i bother watching Youtube instruction videos and spend half a day trying to open my laptop?
The fan noise is getting worse. Will this thermal paste thingy make any difference?

Can someone help me find the PDF of the book Curlicue: Kinetic Origami by Assia Brill? If someone here has it, can you please upload the diagrams from the book, or the whole book itself?

Here's the link to the amazon page of the book.

thanks anon!
thanks also, i think

heres the concept for a new model im finishing this week.
Wait, did you use the foil from gum wrappers for those? I can see the zigzag edge from them on the chest piece.
nope, its straight up aluminum foil. those marks mustve come from how i glued the foil onto the paper before cutting it :/
(it was my first attempt)
You did a great job with these, thanks a ton for sharing!

How did you people get into your hobby, and why do you like it? I am sincerely curious.

Michaels usually has packs of 100 sheets of decent paper for around $11 and just about every week they have a 40% off coupon, sometimes 50%, so for about six bucks you can be folding for a good while. I think I saw a pack of 500 on walmart.com for about $13.

Origami clears my head, as long as I"m doing something I know I can kind of zone out. The therapy sites I've seen describe it as having no heavy weight on mistakes, if you screw up you flatten it out and start again, or throw it away and you're out a few cents.
You will get frustrated a lot. It's easy in the simple models, but as you progress in complexity, you will hit roadblocks and it will frustrate you. But you just need to keep trying, or ask the origami community on the internet for help. In the long run, it will definitely make you a more patient and meticulous person.
When I was on primary school, I had a history teacher who taught us our first figures. He said it was to broad our culture and minds.

I left it for some years, until a year ago I found on the internet a Mai Shiranui papercraft model, so I printed it, and got started again.

Yeah, is because mai waifu.
I used to have anger problems and a teacher had me try a crane, and it all went down hill from there
I prefer papercraft over origami but I have tried the latter.
I got started in papercraft because my family fell upon some rough times growing up so i self-designed a lot of my toys using paper, rulers, and pencil.
I guess it stuck with me because as I grew older and my family came out of that rough patch i was able to go to a higher skill level i could print out and make characters and castles and stuff so it just kind of became a hobby that stuck.

I'm looking for decoration ideas for my Japanese grandma birthday. We agreed in using sakura flowers as motif.

She lived in west for most of her life by the way.

Butterflies if you have paper with patterns, scattered around the table.
Take branches from the forest and decorate them with paper flowers and stick them between real flowers.
I remember there were a candy dish in sakura form, make some of them and one of the kusudamas in your picuture for the middle of the table.
Also some cute animals for beneath the branches, go with squirrels and deers and so on. Especially for the children, make some of them as gifts for them.
Thanks for the ideas but currently the only kids in my family are 11 years old twins.
Can i have your instructions on how you made this one? I think this is a good one you can do it in different sizes and colors
I don't really have the instructions for that. I reverse engineered one similar to that a long time ago. the trick is that it duse rectangles, not squares.

Hi "ANON-friends" of 4Chan/po/a huge favor, anyone know of a patch to be able to open files of PEPAPAKURA Designer but for the new version 3.1.4. It is that the "PepPatch313b.exe" (obviously) does not work for this version.

Before hand thank you very much for your kindness, interest, support and attention.

no key gen....I bought the programs....just hate the password protected files...no need for them
in fact I don't think there is a key gen out for 3.15 yet being they were released not too long ago
Well, the programs will take any key for version 3, so, any keygen for version 3 will work.
I stand corrected....been so long since I used any kind of keygen I am no longer in the know....lol
well other than the password key for those protected files that is

I want to make a really authentic looking pirate map, so I can let my daughter find it, and it will lead us to a chest I bury. What would be the best paper to use, and best methods of ageing/staining it?

Have you ever fucked her
If I had to make one I would go about it by first using some ink, probably from a pen sketch out the geographical features etc. and all the other necessary writing/lines. MAYBE burn it in some areas without setting the paper entirely on fire, tear it at some parts and then use tea bags
fire and wet tea bags
How old is she?
If she's young (the only time this would work) then it most likely won't matter that it's not perfect.

I wish one of my parents did this for me....
She's only 3, but I still want to make it perfect. Something that resembles the one in the pic I posted, so afterwards I can frame it and put it up in her bedroom.

I've already decided on the paper, I'm using antique Vellum, so no need to age it. Just looking into inks and calligraphy sets now.

>I swear to god, i always take on projects that require a metric ton of cutting hundreds of angles. And big rulers piss me off.

Im going to either design and make myself a small 15 cm aluminum ruler or find some see trough material that is strong enough to not shatter, and cut resistant, as with plastic rulers i always end up chipping the edges while cutting.

I just want a tiny light ruler i can flip and center with 2 fingers and not needing to adjust it with both hands because its too large/clunky
15cm rulers are very common... you shouldnt need to make your own

I really cant find any metal ones tough. If i cut a lot with the plastic ones, they eventually get chipped/scratched edges and get too rough for perfect lines.
