Box Skeleton

The box skeleton is a simple modular origami, made from 24 units. Design is by Jeff Beynon. The modules start from a fish base. Folding the modules are pretty easy and quick. Assembling the skeletal cube takes some time. If you notice, in most modular structures, at least one unit of a section will overlap with the neighbouring section. Take, for instance, Tomoko Fuse’s Little Turtle Kusudama. Each of the 3 pyramidal unit overlaps with its [Continued..]

Modular Ring

After completing the Braided Ring a few days back, I was experimenting with folding another ring and ended up with this modular ring. It is made from 15 modules and is pretty easy to fold. I am working on a tutorial for folding this ring. And with Christmas coming up, I have been quite busy making quite a few ornaments. We had the first Christmas gathering yesterday, and I had made 100 ornaments to be giving [Continued..]

Braided Ring

Yet another design by Martin Sejer Andersen that I recently folded This was initially named ‘The Unnamed Ring’! and has recently been christened the Braided Ring. The ring is made from 14 modules. The modules start off with folding into fifths. So a template comes in handy. I quite like the little bits of colour (white in my case) that can be seen at the edges and at the centre of the ring. Btw, the [Continued..]

Alpha Centauri Ring

I love folding wreaths and rings, especially the 3D variety. I have folded a few like the Mette’s Ring – 3D Variation, Sun Dial, Eifel Star. And I found this Alpha Centauri Ring, designed by Martin Sejer Andersen, a good and easy ring to fold. It is a 3D ring, made from 8 units. The fold starts with dividing the paper into thirds. You can of course, approximate it and fold, but much simpler to fold [Continued..]

The origami lotus is yet another traditional, modular model and one that I had tried out recently. The assembly for the lotus is different from what I had done till date. After folding the individual modules (there are a total of 8 modules for the flower and 4 for the leaves), we assemble the modules in sets of 3 (2 flower modules and 1 leaf module) and tie them together. Once everything is held tight [Continued..]
