Green Tree Python

Green Tree Python, originally uploaded by Origami Weekly.

Welcome to Origami Weekly! This is a weekly diagram calendar, made for the origami enthusiast instead of the commercially available beginner's calendars. Every Monday we'll release a new diagram, unpublished and unseen, except by our design team. We hope you'll come back to visit!

For our first week, we have Andrew Hudson's Green Tree Python. This model uses a fractal pattern in steps 8-9 to more accurately reflect the tapered shape of a snake.

Diagrams are here:

Also, we're giving out the CP for next week's model, Jared Needle's Snowflake.


Crease Pattern available here:

Have fun folding, we'll see you next week!


  1. Excellent stuff guys! I look forward to seeing what you have in store each Monday.

    Jared, that's the most realistic "classic-looking" origami snowflake I've ever seen.

  2. I love this... makes me wonder why nobody's done it sooner! Can't wait to try out this snake - it looks like one of those snake-puzzle toys we had as kids, doesn't it? And my first go at a crease pattern-type instruction! Wish me luck!

  3. Fantastic idea, and nice models!

    I am eager to seeing the next one... Monday has already gone in Bilbao... and no new entry, sniff...

    Congratulations from Bilbao.
