It looks like autumn is officially here and this week I saw a couple of autumn themed origami models as well as a lot of great dinosaurs.  If this is your first time here This Week in Origami is where we feature the best new origami models that were uploaded to the Internet during the past week.  Let’s get started.

Robin Scholz is an expert at origami tessellations and this week he made probably the smallest one I’ve ever seen her make which is pretty impressive.
