My origami calendar

I used to love collecting these plastic eggs (they can be handy as back massagers!)

I folded this bird while RB was “enjoying a brief hiatus” today (July 3, 2008), from a 15×15mm piece of paper that I colored with a gold pen; didn’t want to get too small otherwise I would need a smaller egg. I stuck the tail to the inside of the egg shell with double sided tape.

Here’s to a moment of excitement when opening a little present!

    It’s amazing that anyone could create something so small but so beautiful.

  • Thank you Lori. I wasn’t really thinking properly at the time and took a piece of white paper; which is a bit thicker than the lined paper I usually use; hence harder to fold with. But glad it came out; was struggling a bit with that little beak due to the thickness.

    aha!! cute cute!! i love how you set the lighting.. and how the lil one just seems to pop out of the egg!! cute one, Mui-Ling!! another great job i see~ man.. it’s still amazing to see these small pieces of art.. =D

  • Thanks fa! I decided not to use the crane this time because apart from the possibility that people may be tired of those; the crane tail points up, whereas this bird with it’s tail down can be taped to the egg and make it look like it’s flying out.
