"It's as if someone fashioned a small golden bird and then attached a ring around it. The bird is connected to the ring only by its wing tips. I suddenly recognize it. A mockingjay."
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
(Created for the September Artisan Crafts Monthly Challenge: Winged Creatures.)
The mockingjay and arrow are my own design!
I've read the Hunger Games trilogy and never seen the film, but I have seen a picture of the movie's take on Katniss' mockingjay pin. When I saw the theme for this month's AC challenge...I knew what I had to fold!
The mockingjay's a bird so I
tortured myselfplayed around with a bird base for a (long LONG) while and had fun with the wings, especially; had to (unfortunately) use a little cut to get the tail I wanted. Happily, the arrow's super simple.
(Trivia: the background is the blue material of a dress I have. In the book, Madge gives this to Katniss and pins it to her reaping dress, which is blue. Tada.)
Thank you for looking!
+ Designed and folded by me
+ Bird: 7.5 x 7.5cm square of embossed paper, one cut
+ Arrow: 5.5 x 1.1cm rectangle of embossed paper
+ Ring: 4.5cm outer diameter, 3.7cm inner diameter
I can't begin to imagine how challenging this must have been.
You are so talented!
