Little origami elephant

You know how sometimes you need to take a break from work and fold an elephant? Here's my attempt, following this YouTube video in which Jo Nakashima shows how to make an origami elephant designed by Li Jun.

This guy's pudgy derriere is even cuter than his face.

P.S. Did you know that for those verification 'pictures' you can type any word you want and it still works?

Jessica Jones said...

You mean when you leave a comment on here?

Grandma G said...

Yeah, or on any blog that has the verification words. There's one word and one picture.

Oh goodness, you are right, his derriere is so cute! I haven't had much success with oragami in the past but I want to keep trying this one until I can make a decent elephant for my ele-obsessed friend! Thanks for the post :)

I'll have to practice this one. My 4 year old daughter is constantly asking me to make her origami flowers and boxes. AND she LOVES elephants!!

He is a cutie. And yes, I know exactly the feeling you're talking about, when you just need to stop and fold a damn elephant! <3

Rachel said...

Aw, I want to make this.

My daughter, the 10 year old origami addict, will love this one. She's on a crane binge right now - I think the plan is to attach 100 of them to her ceiling - so the elephant will be a welcome change for her.

Never done origami before but this elephant was too cute to pass up. So I got out my paper and sat infront of the computer watching Youtube and made my slightly wonky elephant :) Good fun!!
