Welcome to Tony O'Hare's Smiley Origami site!
I've been doing this wonderful thing called origami for over 40 years, and during that time have created over 150 original origami designs - or models as they are commonly known. One of the main purposes of this site is to bring together photos & instruction diagrams for my origami creations, and put them in the public window.
On this site I've also put a selection of photos & models by some of my favourite folders - people who have inspired me in the past and still do; info about my origami-related activities; links to other origami sites, and lots more.
I hope you enjoy browsing through it. My origami motto is "Keep folding, Keep Smiling" and hopefully you'll enjoy browsing this site, and folding some of the origami models you find here.
I've added instruction diagrams for my "Origami Blackbelt" design on the Diagrams page. This is a variation of the traditional Kimono design, and is based on a common response when you tell someone you do origami "so are you a blackbelt?" Click on the photo.
Tony featured on "Kirstie's Handmade Britain" on Channel 4 on Weds 26th October 2011, when he entered the handicrafts competition at the Royal Welsh Show. You can find instructions for his Origami PC and Nude on the Diagrams page.
Clips from the show were also included on "Harry Hill's TV Burp" the following weekend, including footage of me talking about origami, and not surprisingly, of my origami nude - created in "my mis-spent youth". The commentary from Harry was hilarious, and a mock up of the naked lady was even used to sing a song to close the show! Nice one, Harry!
