Giant Origami Swan by Cuttlefish43 Giant Origami Swan by Cuttlefish43
This took me a very long time to make but I'm very proud of it. I saw this on youtube and thought it would be a great gift for my Mom's birthday so I decided I would give it a shot. I had scale up the instructions and had to make over 1000 origami triangles, which was a pain because it took so long. Then I had to assemble the whole swan which also took a long time. I also got sick in the process of making it. But I managed to finish it in time for my mom. It's a little over 2 feet tall.

I got the inspiration to make it from here: [link] and followed instructions from here: [link]

(Thanks for all the faves and comments! :D)

Gosh, this is great! Did this ever fall apart in the process?
Loads of patience there!

Thank!^^ No it never fell apart, it's pretty stable. But it's been about six months since then and it's slowly losing it's shape. :(

Very impressive work! Much appreciate from my side, over 1000 origami triangles is a big number!

How many hours/days did you spended at it?

Wow thanks! :D
Well I was originally going to make it as a Christmas present for my family. But I didn't realize how long it was going to take and started it 5 days before. In the process I also got sick so it was hard to work on it. So basically I didn't finish it in time, but my Mom's birthday was coming up so I thought it would make a good present for that. It was a lot of work, I even took paper to school and when I had the chance I would make origami triangles. (I'm so sick of triangles now) But I managed to finish it just in time for my mom's birthday and she loved it. So I would say maybe about 15 days, and I worked on it almost every day.
