Origami Skeletons

WELCOME to Origami Skeletons!

ORIGAMI SKELETONS offers you directions on how to make five original complex origami projects. They are paper skeletons of monsters from the past: Stegosaurus, Diplodocus, Dimetrodon, Tyrannosaur and even Ancient man! However, do not search for a complete likeness; they are only cheerful paper models :) Each model consists of several elements, having different levels of difficulty of folding from simple-medium to complex. Although the skeletons consist of a large number of parts , they assemble without glue. More than 2,000 detailed step-by-step colorful photo-diagrams with text directions, placed on 262 pages, will guide you through folding these modular models. The diagrams for folding the 19 most difficult elements are accompanied with video clips (60 minutes of full-motion video) which will help you to fold these models. The CD contains ten sections, which you can open using the menu at the top and bottom of the screen. The main sections are GALLERY, INDEX OF MODELS and MY FOLDING.
