Origami Dragon Bookmark

Now you can have an origami dragon guarding the page of your favorite book! Diagrams and video available!

Designed by Jo Nakashima (03/May/2018)
Difficulty level: High intermediate
My paper:
First dragon: 20cm x 10cm Shadow Fold (buy it). This is my recommended size, but it requires good thin paper
Tutorial: 30cm x 15cm Red Tissue-foil (buy it)

Diagrams and video tutorial

Notice: at first I’ve made these diagrams only for the video, not to be published separately. For this reason, some transitions or steps might not be so clear. If you find some step difficult, you can find more detailed instructions in the video tutorial.

Use a rectangle sheet of paper with ratio 1:2 (half of a square. I recommend 10cm x 20cm). It works best with thin paper because one of the sides will have many layers.

Number of steps: 78
