Wedding Origami Recommendations: What to Fold April 2015


Hi, and welcome to What to Fold, April 2015, the next video in my series where I recommend origami models for you to fold. This time around, I thought with the beginning of the wedding season, let’s look at some suitable models for weddings. Now, first of all, I do want to suggest the What to Fold, January 2015 video, which was all about Valentine’s Day models. And there, I suggested: 4 hearts, 4 boxes, and 4 roses, and those are, of course, fantastic for weddings, too! I’ve also got a playlist of love-related models I’ve done tutorials for, and you might want to check those out. But mostly in this video, I want to concentrate on 5 different couples and 5 different ring models So first of all, I did a video on The Last Waltz, designed by Neal Elias. I think it’s a fantastic, gorgeous model: One sheet of a dancing couple. I folded it previously as a wedding cake-topper for a friend of mine I think it turned out gorgeous! She sent me a picture of her wedding cake, and it was extra special for me to take part in the wedding like that. because, incidentally, she married on the same day as me, so I couldn’t actually attend her wedding, and she couldn’t attend mine. But, you know, that’s how you can at least share the love and share the experience still. Now, second, I want to suggest the Bride & Groom designed by Tadashi Mori. It’s also relatively realistic and more on the complex side, and absolutely beautiful if you’re up for the challenge. Then third, there’s a traditional tuxedo and wedding dress, which is flat and really suitable if you want to make your own greeting card for a wedding. And, more on the kind of simplistic side, Jo Nakashima also presented tutorials for his Bride & Groom, and it’s kind of more geometric and boxy. And finally, if you’re into 3-D origami — or Golden Venture folding, There’s a video, in 7 parts actually, for a Bride & Groom so if you like that kind of design aesthetic, do check that out, too. Going on to rings, I did a video on Ioana Stoian’s Ring or Bracelet, and it’s a very simple and very elegant design, and the decoration on the ring suggests a diamond, perhaps. So I also want to suggest 2 further ring models that have diamonds. The first one is a traditional diamond ring, and the video is done by Tadashi Mori. Tadashi did a wonderful video without verbal instructions. Really, in the beginning, there’s some Spanish (I think), so don’t be put off by that. The folding itself needs no further explanation. And Jeremy Shafer also did a diamond ring from a dollar bill. You can, of course, fold it from normal paper, too, with the aspect ratio (I think) 3:7 he suggests, and it’s quite a stunning ring in that there’s a stellated octahedron on top, which is very visual and really out there! And I think that’s absolutely beautiful, too. Then, I did a tutorial for The Lover’s Ring designed by Francis Ow. I actually did German instructions for that, but I also have subtitles for it. I love the ring, and I do suggest you check it out. It’s absolutely lovely! Another heart ring is one done by Surala World -Origami, and it’s also suggested that you can use it as a napkin ring. So if you’re actually searching for a model that you can use during the wedding, not as a ring but for the napkins, that’s a wondeful model to fold. So, to sum things up, do check out my playlist of love-related models. I’ve also put together a playlist of all the other models I’ve suggested in this video. And finally, if you like these videos with my recommendations, there’s a playlist with all of the What to Fold videos, too. This includes the January video, which I mentioned in the beginning of course. So if you’re getting married this year or if you’re attending a wedding ceremony, I hope these suggestions help you out. And, of course, there’s so many more models to fold. So if you have a suggestion for that extra special day, do leave it in the comments section so that everyone else can also follow along. I hope to see you around, and as always, happy folding!
