Origami Swallow

Day 53 - Origami swallow

Origami swallow starts with origami bird base.It is better to use double side coloured paper (even though the final folds won't show the other side of paper) because the model needs a cut, which may expose the other colour.Thus its not pure origami but kirigami as cutting is involved.

But the model can be folded with single side coloured or double side coloured paper without much difference .The final model looks like 2D model as its flat but actually its a 3D model.

Easy to fold and could be used for kids DIY. Oh I feel with the past few post you can create a small farm of birds ....
