ABC to Z Alphabet Origami Challenge – Letter X

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 X.

During this ABC to Z 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!

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.
