So far I have created several animals to this date as I had planned to and a few bonus small projects as well. as most of it consisted of what was kind of like prep, I am moving on and making on of, if not the, final product. Which is known as a kusudama. The reason this is important is because it is a geometric based figure that takes repitition and large amounts of carefulness. I have a picture listed below. If there is more time to make more I will make what is known as a hex-based folded animal. If you look it up youll see all of the animals that look very professional and well folded.
To further progress today I had made a panel of the figure you see below. There are six panels in total and I have to joint them together. Also, to add more effect, I concave the edges so there are no openings and it looks more like a star. This is one of the only oragami that require tape. Not glue. Tape is barely exceptional. If any glue is introduced then it becomes paper mache. After I finish I will have people put names in a hat and pick. The person I picked will keep or give away the kusudama. The only challenges so far are materials that I am running low on.
For every person that comments I will put you name in a hat that I pick from to give away oragami. Comment by June 9th.

I had attempted to make an oragami senzubaru and had unmercily failed. I was only able to produce a singular crane. This was due to the fact that I had to use inverse folds that I'd never use before. Also I may have forgot to mention but all of them are one piece of paper that it cut like shown at the bottom. This is so challenging since you have to move all of the other ones to ensure their connectivity. Also to ensure that they can stay in the same direction. It is square paper cut into a paper like at the bottom.
Senzubaru literally means a thousand cranes. I couldnt even make four :p
