Origami bugs by Orestigami Origami bugs by Orestigami
From left to right: Scorpion, Acrocinus Longimanus, cockroach. Designed by Robert J. Lang, each one folded by me from 1 uncut 30cm square of the same bread wrapping paper I already used for my alamo stallion

I've made the scorpion, how did you make the legs so thin?

I used very thin paper for that. It's easier to shape properly

:lol: These are beautiful. I have folded the usual boxes and cranes but I never knew such complicated creatures could be folded from one sheet of paper.

Just 1 square, no cuts no glue...fascinating, isn't it? That's why I love origami! :)

They are all creepy enough to be deemed great folds. I specially like the scorpion, mainly because I find them somewhat cool and they are not insects.
That paper is turning out to be a real goldmine for your origami needs!

Yes, it's a goldmine indeed! I have tried Lang's bugs a couple of times from copy paper and kraft paper but I failed miserably, the scorpion's tail was too thick and almost impossible to shape. This bread wrapping paper is much better because it's very thin and also the color is very insect-like (or arachnid-like :)).

Wow, this is amazing, 30 cms square?! and how big are the insects when finished?

Thanks! The two insects are about 10-11cm (antennae included, the scorpion is a little longer if you stretch the tail.
