ABC to Z Alphabet Origami Challenge – Letter A

Participate in our ABC to Z origami challenge! Here you find paper-folding prompts to give you direction and ideas to fold and share origami related to the LETTER A.

During this origami challenge, we are sharing origami models or concepts related to each letter of the alphabet. Once a week, on Thursday, we announce a new letter and highlight some posts that people share on our Facebook group. You are welcome to join!

Letter A (Week 1 of 26)

You can share models that you have folded previously, or, you may fold new models based on the suggestions you find here. You can also use my prompts as a starting point to explore your own ideas.

So, for this first week, we will start with the letter A. Here are the prompts:

Accordion (Tutorial)ArmadilloArgentina
Ace of Diamonds (Tutorial)AzaleaAsymmetry

When you share your models on the Origami Spirit Facebook Fan Group.

  • Spell out the word related to your model. eg: “A is for________”
  • Write the name of the model designer, if known.
  • Share any other information about the model you can think of.
  • Use the hashtag #ABCOrigami

The origami letter ‘A’ and the letters for the word ‘Origami’ in the above graphic were designed by Coen van Someren and folded by Leyla Torres.
