What is Paperfight?
Paperfight gives you the chance to use your creative skills through the ancient Japanese craft of origami. Whether you are a complete beginner or a wondrous whizz when it comes to creating paper toys we are looking for imaginative individuals to choose one of the animals below and let your creative flair take over! We want you to make an origami animal that is striking and eye-catching. Get creative with colours, textures, props and backgrounds to create something different and unique that will impress our judges.
You could create a glittery elephant that wears a striped bow-tie or craft a colourful monkey sitting in a tree, playing the banjo. The funnier and more creative, the better!

Ideas for decoration
Be bold! It’s your creation. The crazier the better, let your imagination know no bounds.
Why not layer on some bubble wrap, or apply feathers, you could stick on some fish netting or scrunch up newspaper, be inventive.
How about a monkey playing a guitar? Maybe a lion wearing a hat? Let your imagination grow, the crazier the better.
Show us where your animal lives, or where it enjoys visiting. Your animal could work at a circus or just be enjoying a hot, bubble bath. It doesn’t have to live in its natural habitat it could live in an igloo or be aboard a cruise!
Use a variety of skills that you already have – are you a knitter or a sewer? Good with arts and crafts or a dab hand at jazzing up the ordinary? Use your skills that you already have and build on these! Maybe you can stick on some sequins or buttons? Glue on gems or knit your animal a tiny scarf?
