      Thanks-I think dollars are easier for this kind of thing because of their oblong shape-a square goes into one thing (the man in this case) and the rest into another (the glider).

      I think so too. The problem is thinking of 2 objects that goes well together and of course executing it. I am always looking to do more.

      Here is the crease pattern:

      If you are looking for diagrams, you will have to be patient. I simply won't have time until Christmas break-I can show you, but it will be a couple weeks, okay?

      Awesome! Can hardly wait to try it...a while back I saw an origami shirt and tie but saw no instructions for it so had to figure it out on my own...of course, having markings on a bill helped immensely!
      Thanks for sharing!

      Dear Jon,

      I'm a brand new user, dont know if you're even on this anymore. I'd really appreciate it if you could show me the diagrams to fold this hang glider guy. One of the coolest origami figures I've ever seen. Thanks.

      Hi, I am still working on it. I got pretty far on the diagrams and actually have pretty much all of it drawn up, but I still need to do some formatting. I got to that point a while ago and put it down for a while because that is the tedious part and I just didn't feel like doing it. I actually started working on it again today-I will probably have it done soon. If I don't send you a message in a week, remind me again-I will be sure to finish them.

      Can someone please help me with steps 7 and 8? thanks

      Hello there, I am having difficulty on steps: 14, 17, 18, 19, & 20. I was curious to know whether or not you have any videos that could help me, but I am eager to know if you yourself could explain these steps in greater detail. I would very much appreciate the help because I would like to make this for my boyfriend who loves origami but sadly has not mastered it yet.
      Thank you.
