Vespertilio – corrugated paper bat

My partner Ioana Stoian recently created this wonderful model of a bat, using origami corrugations – her first origami design!

I’m very pleased with this model and helped her to create a simple set of diagrams and a crease pattern, which you can download via her site:

You can see it also folds flat – the world’s first “flat pack” bat 🙂

    Nice, charming model, “from an uncut 1 by 8 rectangle” as Ray might put it 🙂

    As has been noted above, I’d be quite surprised if new models didn’t start oozing from your fingers before you know it, Ioana !

  4. How pretty!
    It’s even better then the one you made during the convention.
    Also thanks for making a diagram.

    Hope you’ll do more
