Hola Leyla , me preguntaba si podrias poner un video para hacer “Abanicos de Papel” , pero yo no estoy buscando los que tienen sostenidos palitos de helado , como ya veras en muchos , u otros videos de Youtube o Internet ect. Un abanico tradicional , y algo mas , que tuviera un “Mecanismo” para que suela abrirse e cerrarse. Como sos una profesional , crei que tendrias ideas para el mecanismo . Muchas Gracias . Meli

Hola Meli,
Conozco un abanico tradicional, pero sin el mecanismo que pides. He de hacerle el video, pero no te puedo prometer que sea pronto. Por supuesto tendré tu pedido en cuenta para un futuro no muy lejano.
Por lo pronto te puedo dar este enlace para diagramas de un abanico básico tradicional.
Gracias por escribir.

Leyla

Hi. I was wondering if u have a video on how to make an umbrella. I have looked even on YouTube but I can only find the type of origami umbrella in Chinese or Japanese the instructions and not a video. I am looking for a rounded type of umbrella and not pointy

Hi Iris,
I’d love to be able to help you with the umbrella, but at the moment I don’t have instructions for one.
