    Hi, Leyla, my name is Sol. Congratulations for your Origami web site. It is so cute and sweet!
    I started folding paper last week, in spite of loving the origami many years ago. Do you have an unicorn and Virgin Mary Origami step by step videos?
    Among the ones I most enjoy doing are the corner bookmarkers and Holy Spirit Dove.
    Let’s keep contact.
    All the best!
    God bless you and your family!

    I really liked the bat heart, but I found it quite hard to create. It just looked like a load of creases, unlike yours, and I didn’t know how to make it take the look of an actual heart. Really liked it, though. Thanks!

    Leyla , eres muy clara , de todos los videos que he visto de origami eres de las mas faciles de entender, y tienes figuras muy lindas, muchas gracias

  • Aryus July 31, 2013, 2:13 pm

    I really like all of the animals. Is there any chance you can do one on a horse? I find it easy to follow your videos were others my origami doesn’t look anything like what it’s supposed to.

    • Leyla Torres July 31, 2013, 3:15 pm

      Thank you for the suggestion Ayrus. I’ll put a horse on my list, but I cannot promise one too soon.

      • Aryus July 31, 2013, 6:03 pm

        Thanks for the consideration. :)
