Origami Monkey Face

Original model created on 24/02/2016 - Published on 26/02/2016

The Monkey Face is a very cute and very easy origami model that I designed for this year Chinese New Year (2016, Year of the Monkey!). In a few folds, you can create the head of a young monkey. Some of the folds have no specific location, so you can make the ears more or less big, and the corners of the head more or less round. And you can make a paper monkey head of the color you prefer.
