Parasaurolophus and Closing the Bag


Welcome back to the third installment of Origami Weekly! We've got another round of diagrams for you this time; Andrew Hudson has drawn up a crease-pattern for his Parasaurolophus. This model uses an interesting combination of closed-back and open-back techniques to achieve a more realistic form.

Also for this week, Jared Needle has written down his much-tested method of closing chip bags. This is one of the most useful origami folds I think you'll ever come across, and I think you'll find it surprisingly durable despite its elegance.

Happy folding, and I hope to see you again next week!


  1. Not to be picky or anything, but the name should probably be "Parasaurolophus," unless you were making up your own new creature!



  2. Hi, please, check out my blog.
    Great work.
    See You

  3. Right you are, Anne! It's been fixed. Thank you!

  4. I don't mean to be impertinent, but if you could, could you please check the address for the Parasaurolophus .pdf? Clicking on the link just produces a 404 for me, and the similarity in the numbers part of the addresses between both links has me wondering if the link for it you've put here is the correct one.

    If it is, I apologize; if it's not, I would greatly appreciate it if you could edit this to include the correct address. Thank you very much!

  5. Hi Kino,

    Thanks for your comment. I have replaced the link. It should work now.
