I wanted to make a St. Patrick's Day card with a leprechaun and its pot of gold. I couldn't find many leprechaun models, so I folded a dwarf and dressed it up a little bit...
In the card, I used the following origami models:
- Dwarf, designed by Kunihiko Kasahara, from the book The Magic of Origami. The model has two parts: body and cap. I only folded the body, using a 3" (75 mm) square of regular origami paper.
- Hat (variation), designed by Gay Merrill Gross, from the book Minigami, folded with a 1¾" x 2½" (44mm x 63 mm) rectangle of regular origami paper.
- Cup, traditional model, folded with a 3" (75 mm) square of regular origami paper.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
