Origami One-Horned Dragon

Origami One-Horned Dragon

I have been looking out for a slightly complex dragon for quite sometime, now. I didn’t want something which is highly complex and tricky either. I have found a perfect one horned dragon design (perfect for me that is) YouTube.com. It is an intermediate model and incorporates, sinks, rabbit ears and crimps in the folds. It looks pretty neat once completed and I found it quite easy to fold, too.

I have used Origami Paper by Tuttle Publishing – Origami Paper Animal Prints 8 1/4 – for this model; which comes in Animal prints, printed on both sides, of 8 1/4″ in size.

This model took me around 20 minutes to half an hour to fold and this includes putting the finishing touches on it, like seeing that the feet and wings are aligned, etc. One can make a bigger dragon (of the same design) by using a larger sized paper. Even if you have A4 size paper, you can cut it down into a square and use it.

How to Fold a One-Horned Dragon:
YouTube.com is again the source for this design. There are 5 really short videos (not longer than 3 mins each) which you would need to follow in order to fold this dragon. The contributor has explained the steps clearly and has even provided folding tips on the trickier parts in the video! I am sure you will find these really easy to follow….

hi, I really like this one horned dragon and I wanted to make one of my own, but it seems I can’t finde instructions anywere… Could you help me out please. Thank you ^_^

Hello Vlad, thank you for letting me know that the instructions are not available. There was a series (5-part series, actually) of videos on youtube that I referred to when folding this dragon. I do not have the diagrams nor the designer’s name / contact details, myself. Maybe you can contact the youtube channel owner and find out the designer of the dragon or where the diagrams are available? I’m sure they will help you out.
