Small Mouse (Design by Rikki Donachie)

This cute little mouse is designed by Rikki Donachie and looks very much like a cartoon character. Rikki Donachie is popular for his cartoon like designs and other pretty origami models.

Paper to use:

You can use duo colored or single side colored paper. The only difference in this is that the tip of the nose is of the alternate color. So in this case, where I have used a pink sheet of paper (single side colored), the tip of the mouse’s nose is pink and the body a light shade of pink / almost white.

I started out with the color side facing up and ended up with the white shade prominent all over the mouse. If you would like to reverse the colors or select another color combination of your choice, please remember that the color of the mouse depends on the color which is facing downwards / away from you when you start off.

How to fold this “Small Mouse”:

Rikki Donachie has himself provided the diagrams for this design on his website – Diagram for Rikki Donachie’s small mouse. You will be able to find the link to the diagram on that page.

Now all that is remaining is to place a piece of cheese near it 😉 hehe

I’m having a hard time with Rikki’s step #21. Suggestions?

Hi Lanman! Sorry for the delay in my response….I was out of station for the thanksgiving break. With regard to step# 21…the part (of the paper) which you have folded at step# 20…think of this as a pre-crease. What you see in step# 21 is this part folded “inwards”… i.e. using the same creases which you formed by completing step# 20 – this is a valley fold along the marked area shown in step# 20, you need to carefully (without tearing the paper) convert the valley fold into a mountain fold thereby ‘hiding’ the paper “in the mouse’s body” instead of outside / around it. You will get your model to look like the image in step# 22. I hope this helps!

Re step 21. I think of this as sort of turning te paper inside out. Ancella hd it about right in her explanation above.

Glad you liked the mouse, which is correctly called “La petite souris” for personal reasons.

Thanks a lot for your comment, Rikki Donachie. I really like this design of yours and enjoyed folding it.
