Icosahedron using Snapology

Let me start of by saying that the more I read about origami snapology, the more information I find! Plenty of tutorials are available to make the basic snapology unit. As for assembling the units into various polyhedra, there are tutorials for assembling the Icosahedron but all other polyhedra are strictly DIYs But once we understand the polyhedral shapes, using snapology units to form those shapes is fascinating, though challenging. To start off with the [Continued..]

Stand In The Corner Box

But if I interchanged the colours, the inside of the paper [Continued..]

Week 06 (Day 2): Heart Box

The origami heart box is a very elegant origami created by Robin Glynn. I just love this box! It isn’t very difficult, it is amazingly economical (it is made from just 1 A4 sheet of paper, one half for the lid and the other for the base) and it is the perfect size to hold jewellery. Most origami boxes are modular pieces and to get a box this size, you would need really small modular [Continued..]
