The Dragoncurve

The Dragoncurve is the shape taken by a strip of paper that is folded many times. The "standard" curve comes from having the creases all at right angles when the strip of paper is unfolded again. So what if this angle is different? What if we also twist the paper into the shape of a spiral with every fold? What if we combine different dragoncurves drawn at different angles?
