Bird of Peace - Shafer

This is a Bird of Peace Pop-Up card by Jeremy Shafer. The model is published in Origami to Astonish and Amuse (2001), but you can also find a PDF of the instructions on his barf site here.

The model is folded from a custom base, with the bird body made from a kind of mini Bird base. The model definitely makes nice use of the colour difference between sides of a sheet of Origami paper. I folded the model from a standard 15cm sheet of Origami paper.

The card makes a nice little add-on to a gift for someone, and looks great when left open for display.

The instructions also include a variation of the card, whereby instead of a bird inside the card there is a heart.
