It kind of stretches open if you pull two opposite outward folds, if that helps...

Please you guys
Thank you!!!

It's coming to that time of the year, Christmas/Halloween.

Are you into greetings card making?

Who do you give cards to?

Do you have a card making kit, if so what's in it?

It's a personal policy of mine to give cards when I really mean it. I _always_ hand make them, and generally end up writing a mini-essay in them about all the nice memories I've had with the person, how much I like them, etc.
Every Christmas I exchange cards with a couple of fellow Peanuts (Charlie Brown and Snoopy) fans I've met online, I usually have a hand at involving my message with drawing cute illustrations of the characters and stuff.

My kit:
>Blank cards and envelopes (square size)
>A bundle of tissue paper (gives nice texture when pasted onto card)
>Coloured and a pack of decorative paper (for pasting onto the card, of course)

What are some accessible, yet comprehensive books that a beginner at origami can buy?

Also any books on gift wrapping would be appreciated as well.

When I first started I remember I just went on youtube and searched for how to make an origami. Youtube unlike books is basically free, and like a million more guides than a book.
You start out with simple things like cranes and rabbits, and you just move onwards. Just try stuff, it's a pretty easy hobby if you know how to follow steps and take each step carefully and slowly.
I mean hell, considering how youtube has expanded nowadays, the videos are probably a million times better than back when I did it.
Considering I learned from some kid with his moms digital camera in a half lit room showing you how to fold a crane, you should have no problem with the stuff they have now.
But if you're really insistant on using a book, just go to chapters and pick out any, all the books I have seen were for beginners.
Also if you do attempt this hobby, go to the local art store and buy some actual origami paper like pic related, it's easier to fold, looks nicer, and you don't have to cut it into squares unlike printer paper.
Origami Omnibus has a nice variety of good models, not too difficult.

Im looking for something like pic related but seethrough to put drawings and things in it ,but i dont know the correct name of these things so its hard to look for online, so do you know what its called and where to get it online?
Small ones are called Place Card Holders.

Full sheets or larger, try Sign Holders, or Display Holder/Frame

Do you have to use origami paper?
I tried to get into it and browsed here a long time ago. I tried to make a crane with printer paper and just got frustrated and quit after tearing it.

I'm much older now and more patient so I want to try again with this
>Do you have to use origami paper?
For complex origami models yes. But for a craneand any other beginner model a sheet of printer paper is enough.

To start you need a square sheet of paper. You can make a square sheet out of notebook paper,printer paper or any other paper than is not to thick and doesn't tear to easily. John Montroll has some origami books that are not too complex if you want to fold something other than just a crane.. You can probably download those on PDF for free somewhere. I don't use origami paper. I find that it tears too easy and not large enough for more complex models. Animal Origami for the Enthusiast is what I liked when I was highschool.
You can do pretty much anything through intermediate models with loose leaf and, if you're careful with your corners, kami (the cheap colorful stuff sold everywhere). Printer paper's shit, but still useable.

Ey /po/, one of the new Pokemon from Pokemon Sun and Moon version is Kartana. It looks like this. Can you make it in real life with origami, and if so, how?

Hope to see papercrafts of the new Necrozma forms or whatever they are though the Solgaleo and Lunala bits aren't so angular so it could be more trouble than it's worth
That new Ultra Beast Assembly would make for a good papercraft, also nice dubs

can't you just dissect it to figure this out?
look up "origami tessellations". Many different types and techniques
Thank you

My brother sent me the pictures of it, I don't have it in my possession.

I've always been interested in playing those tabletop games with figures like Warhammer and all that, but I never could afford to. It only came to me that I could make papercraft models to play them.

Could you guys recommend me tabletop games that were made specifically for papercraft models? Or some links to games that have been adapted into papercraft.

You can get plastic bases cheap too. Search for game making supplies. You can make some hella easy out of a stick of balsa too

Hey, this seems like as good a thread as I can find. I'm planning on running a D&D naval campaign and I'm looking for good sailing ship miniatures to help with that. I want to use them to track voyages and do ship-to-ship combat on 1-inch hex grid maps that I'm drawing out by hand. I had planned on using some of the minis from Pirates of the Spanish Main(pic related), but it turns out they stopped making them a while back. Anyone know of a good alternative? I'm looking for models that ideally fall into the 0.5-2 inch range in length. If I can't find a good and cheap alternative I'll have to buy PotSM minis off ebay.

This should serve you well anon.

That said, does anyone have a copy of the 2D Warhammmer 40k (not top-down) figure flats? All of the uploads/dropboxes/ect are dead. I'm really looking for Copies of Chaos Cultists/Adeptus Arbites/Necromunda Gangs like the attached Photo.

Ok so i bought black paper and after printing the first page i somehow forgot that the templates have grey in them and now theres ink where i dont want it. I tried putting the template in inkscape but the program crashes if i import somewhere around the 13th page. Ive seen other blogs make this with black paper and i need to find out how they manipulated the templates
if you still want to use black paper, you can try following, print the model on normal paper, then put it on top of the black paper and glue 4 corner, then cut the model, Now you will have your model on black paper without line and ink.

About the black paper already print before, you can turn it over and use it.
What scale is it?

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.

Lets have a papercraft designing thread.
ITT discuss what things you've made, methods of designing papercraft and programs, stuff you wish would be made, etc.

I've only made simplistic papercraft for D&D miniatures so far, more 2.5D than traditional papercraft. My process is mostly piggybacking off of Eddnic's designs for the shapes needed for people and some animals and taking images from google to create custom minis using GIMP. Was trying to teach myself to use metasequoia last year but got distracted with work and since then feel like it would just be better to learn Blender. Has anyone had success with importing Blender models into Pepakura without destroying the model by reducing poly counts?

I color swapped and edited Eddnic's fire drake to make a guard drake
Modified Eddnic's Draconian to be medium sized and have blue and red types.

I have alot of humanoids but I put them all as layers in a Gimp file to customize them with different gear and appearances so I can't post the bulk of my things as pdfs right now. If Shit doesn't hit the fan I might jump back into making things and do more stuff here.

I've been designing paper crafts for a long time, I don't use any 3D software, I just design the templates flat, learning little tricks to predict the shape of the outcome along the way,

...How are you guys
I think we need a sense of what these are supposed to come out looking like, because I can't see it right now.
