Origami Twitter Bird

Origami Twitter Bird

Name: Origami Twitter Bird
Designer: Maria Sinayskaya
Paper ratio: square
Paper size:  12 cm
Model size: ~ 7 cm
Paper: kami
Diagram: not available

A few weeks ago, I stumbled across a set of origami styled icons.
Social Origami Icons
They are not real origami of course but look sort of origami-ish… So I tried to design the real origami twitter bird! I have the impression that Twitter has at least three different-looking birds as a logo, so I just chose this one as a model.

  1. Just perfect!

    • i know wonderfull

      • hey it me again i was wondering if you can post a diagram on how to make a paper M i would love that!

  2. Я медитирую на эту птичку уже две недели. Она великолепна!

  3. Wow.. would love to see if you are going to share the diagram for folding this twitter bird. Quite similar to the twitter icon. ^_^

  4. Oh how did u done that? I’ll go on a wedding on friday and want to fold money like a twitter bird.

    • I haven’t diagrammed this model yet. In fact, some folds there were made without any reference points, so it will be difficult to diagram properly.
      Anyway, this bird is folded from a square, not a rectangle. It can not be folded from a bill unless you cut it (and in this case I think your square will be too small to fold it neatly).

      • Hi there!
        My fiancé and I met on twitter and we’re getting married in October. We thought it could be nice to make this beautiful origami fold as a giveaway. Is there any chance you can give us the diagram?
        Thank you so much!!!!

        • Hi, Eshcar! I’ve never diagrammed it, the model is not as simple as it seems.
          But you might want to check out this bird by Paul Jackson:

          I guess, if folded with the right color, it might pass as a twitter bird:)
