On the last Monday in May we in the U.S.A. celebrate Memorial Day. On this day we pay our respects to the brave men and women who have lost their lives serving this country. In honor of the occasion we at Origami Weekly present a yellow ribbon. The yellow ribbon serves as a small token of our support for our troops, and our wishes for them to return home safely. God bless our troops and God bless America.

Fold a ribbon and show your support!
See you next time!
For our viewers from other countries: the yellow ribbon does represent a similar sentiment in many nations. Also, if made from a different color, the same style ribbon has come to represent awareness of many other things, such as pink for breast cancer, or red for AIDS. Feel free to fold a ribbon for your cause, whatever it may be.

Well, it's week 21, and we've got something really neat this time around. Gerwin Sturm designed a really neat new model, and was kind enough to send us the diagrams for it. This was created as an entry for the Origami Tessellations Design Challenge, and is one of the most thorough diagrams of a tessellation I think I've ever seen. Thank you Gerwin!
Diagrams are here.

Hey, it's week 18, and we've got something a little different-- Silas Vreind's cup, which is made from a 16-sided polygon! For the record, that's called a hexadecagon.
I folded it from 6 inch kami for the photo, but I recommend using something a little bigger for your first try. Letter paper or A4 should be fine.
