Fold a parliament of cute and plump owls to celebrate the spooky season and Autumn season!
The folding sequence is straightforward with a couple of squash folds towards the end.
We will fold an Owl from 15 cm (~6 inch) kami in class. If time permits we can fold a smaller owl from 7.5 cm (~3 in) kami. This owl shows both sides of the paper.
15 cm sheet yields about 7.5 cm (3 inch) tall x 9 cm (3.5 in) wide owl
7.5 cm sheet yields about 3.75 cm (1.5 inch) tall x 4.5 cm (1.75 in) wide owl
First we will make a pentagon. Then we will make a rose based on the crane base. Students should be familiar with crane base and sinks.
The book is old. A diagram of the pentagon version is not in the book. I developed it myself.
