NEW CONTEST: Origami versions of other books?

Hey SuperFolders!
Let’s change things up a bit here with a contest for books that are not MY books.
To enter this contest, you make, photograph and send in origami characters from other books, like, say, Captain Underpants!

You can pick ANY book you want, as long as it (a) not mine and (b) rated PG! I especially encourage you to pick your FAVORITE book.

Entries are due on Dec. 16. Please send in only original designs, although you are of course welcome to use my Yoda, Darth, Han, etc… as a starting point.
The prize will be a SIGNED copy of Wonderstruck, by Brian Selznick!

Send entries to contest@origamiyoda.com

Hi everyone I’m new. I’ve folded much origami of my own but never posted it on the site. So that’s why I’m called NOT YET Superfolder Cam. Anyway, I’m a HUGE HP fan. Those ideas of yours sound totally stooky!!! I made a Harry Paper and You-Know-Who (AKA Foldemort). I want to make Foldgrid and Neville Foldbottom. You got style man! :]
