Origami Winter Unicorn by FoldedWilderness Origami Winter Unicorn by FoldedWilderness
When wintry cold leaves you forlorn
Send a thought to this unicorn
And hope anew it will adorn
Until once again Spring is born
                                      -FoldedWilderness

Made as a special request from a family member.

Origami unicorn, folded from a single square sheet of paper, painted on both sides before folding.
Model designed by Roman Diaz

So beautiful, the light falls perfect.
It reminds me of how much I loved unicorns when I was a kid ^_^.

Amazing, I wish I could learn to fold paper like you. Do you have any suggestions for ways to start?

The way I started was with some youtube videos, then I got a book and from there, it's practice and patience.
Tadashi Mori on youtube has a a number of easy origami (in his profile, he has a playlist called 'easy origamis' that has many good starter models) you can pick a few from there, for example.

I would suggest starting with the simplest models first to get a sense of what is happening with the paper first.

For my first steps into origami, I was happy just to make a traditional crane that looked halfway decent.
From there, you can try for more complex stuff gradually and never be afraid to try, even if the result isn't what you'd hoped for, it's a learning experience for next time.

I hope this helps a little.
And sorry for taking a million years to reply.

Thank you very much.   I like the idea of the poem but, I think it is clumsily written. ;)
