Today I would like to show you my favorite origami unicorn model ユニコーンの折り紙. This model is by the upcoming origami folder Yudai Imai 今井雄大. Since he appeared on the origami scene, his most famous model the origami hedgehog appeared already in two very prestigious Japanese publications: the Tanteidan Origami Magazine Nr. 172 and the latest origami book by Makoto Yamaguchi 山口真 “New Generation of Origami” 新世代 至高のおりがみ.
Origami Unicorn Supplies
In order for you to fold this adorable origami unicorn you only need one square sheet of Kami paper. The author recommends size 15 cm and up. I think you should start off with bigger size paper (around 20 cm or more) and then work your way down if you want. It is always easier to fold animal from slightly larger paper, especially that you will have a few layers overlapping.
You will be delighted to know that Yudai Imai himself made a tutorial to this cute origami unicorn.
If you follow my origami work, you know that I don’t fold animals too often. I guess that are people who love to fold animals and people like me who prefer to fold geometric designs more. But I can really recommend this design. Not only is the outcome so cute, but the folding is pleasant as well. Even my 10 year old daughter folded this model.
Besides this design, I can recommend another origami animal, the origami elephant by Paul Jackson.
