Hello! I’m Yonosuke, a writer of KARAKURIJAPAN!

 Today’s lesson is the instruction of origami. Let’s try it all together! 

What is Snapping Camera?

 

 

What I’m going to introduce at this time is an easy instruction to fold “snapping camera”.

Many people may wonder “what is the snapping camera?”

 

“Snapping camera” is a camera with a gimmick that you can make a sound of snapping and release the shutter as if you take a photo by pulling both ends of it.
 

Although there are various origami works, the origami work with such a gimmick is rare. What I can only think of is a jumping frog.
