Origami green snake and red apple
While we might not be fond of serpents, this is one great origami snake that will make one’s heart slither and slide on the grounds of temptation; the temptation to fold paper, fold again, and keep folding!
This origami snake is a creation of Beth Johnson. The folding concept is masterfully simple, yet effective, and striking.

This video shows instructions on how to fold the origami snake. Try it!

Thank you Beth Johnson for granting permission to demonstrate it here!

Materials Used
Any strip of paper long enough will be suitable. For the origami snake in the photograph, a strip of paper 1 x 45 inches was used. (2.5 x 112 cm aproximately)

About the origami apple
A creation of Shuzo Fujimoto.
Origami apple video instructions HERE
Diagrams for the origami apple are found in the book World’s Best Origami by Nick Robinson.

    Very geometric.

      Yes, very geometric, but the snake essential spirit is there, isn’t it?
