Golden Snitch by synconi Golden Snitch by synconi

I CAUGHT THE GOLDEN SNITCH :D

(Whilst revising every day last Easter break, the dulcet tones of Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter kept me company...) This was inspired by Kade Chan's golden snitch. Kade hasn't made a tutorial or a crease pattern, but I figured the body of the snitch was
folded in a similar way to the magic ball. The wings are a simple pleat et voilà, we have a baby snitch!

:heart:

10.3 x 2.8cm gold foil paper (width:length = 3:11) | 5.5cm square of printer paper with end triangles cut off to yield a hexagon | Kade Chan

No, I don't, but it's not too tough to work out. It's basically a small magic ball-> www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgXwSd… and the wings are a separate sheet of paper, pleated. Have a bash at making one! :eager:
