That's it for another week.  If you enjoyed these photos be sure to check out all the folders and designers on Flickr and give them a follow and of course be sure to check back again next week for another edition of This Week in Origami.

Also, if anyone knows where you can get the recent Tanteidan magazines let me know.  I know Origami-Shop.com sells some of them but they're missing the most recent 10 or so.
