This model was fun. It started with the organ base and then was an extra six steps for a total of 11. It took about ten minutes as the last couple steps confused me at first. This four-pointed crown would fit perfect on a small doll.

Kimono Heart

This model has an interesting name. It was named by the creator because "it folds left side over right (from the wearer's perspective), like a kimono." It was seven steps and about five minutes.

Instruction Folder

This model is a miniature folder. It was based on the previous organ base. I added some paper into the folder to make it more clear. This model, like the bill fold, isn't very interesting to me. Including the base, this was 14 steps and about seven minutes.

Organ Base

This model is another base model. I am curious what this one will turn into in the future. It has five steps and took about three minutes.

The bird model is a nightingale. It was rather simple with five steps and about seven minutes.

Baby Bunny

This model is supposed to be a baby bunny, but I think it looks more like a slug. It was seven steps and took about five minutes. Scissors were required on this one to separate the ears. I don't like this one much.

This goldfish looks pretty cool. It started with the helmet base and then was ten more steps. It took about twelve minutes.  It required using scissors to cut the bottom of the tail allowing it to be folded back. I like the paper on this one; it just seems to fit.

This model is the cicada bug. It also started with the helmet base from a few days ago. After the base, it was eight steps. This one took about ten minutes.

This model used the previous day's helmet base as the start after that it was five steps. It took about seven minutes or so. It was fairly easy and straight forward. I like this one.

Helmet Base

This was another simple base model with only three steps. It took only a minute or two.

Pleated Bird

This model was easily the hardest so far. It was ten steps with the last step made up of at least five more mountain/valley folds. I had a very hard time with it and ended up with my own unique model. I could not figure out how to do what the diagram explained, so I improvised. It is close, but not quite right. The paper was about to tear, so I had to finish. At least fifteen minutes on this one. Looking at the photo again, I like my version better than the instructions.

This model combines the previous cat head and cat body. I like it. I think this is my new second favorite instead of the elephant. Sorry elephant! You're third now. The panda is still #1.

Cat body

This is the second half of a two part model. It was seven steps and took ten minutes. I had trouble with the final folds for tail because I kept getting the previous fold proportions off.
