Origami Box

Origami Box
I came across a tutorial for this origami box yesterday and couldn’t resist folding it immediately! It’s not like any other box I’ve folded before, it appears to be a rectangular box from outside but when you open it up there is another box inside – a square one! It also has a lid which closes down very tightly. The box is made out of a single square sheet of paper without scissors or glue. A sheet of scrapbooking paper will be probably the best choice for this box. Description UPDATE from 13.09.2013: As it turns out, you can make this box not only from a square but from a rectangular sheet, too! Oh, and just a small piece of advice - on the first step don’t crease the sheet in half all the way from edge to edge, just make a short pinch somewhere in the middle.

There are many different patterns out there and this one is sometimes called change of heart. You’ll need a dollar bill or any U.S. paper currency. If you have trouble pinching in the sides to form the water bomb base, you can flip this over. When you do this, it kind of looks like a kite and now we’re going to squash these triangles down.

Five Pointed Origami Star I love that this star is neatly finished and attractive on both front and back. Update: March 2013. It has recently come to my attention that this design should be credited to Tomoko Fuse. I haven't been able to find it in a published work--can anyone confirm this? The secret? How to make a five pointed star with pentagon shaped origami paper Start with a pentagon shaped piece of paper. Download PDF set of pentagon templates in various sizes. Fold the pentagon in half down the center of any point. Pull one flat side toward the center of the paper, keeping the center fold line aligned. When the side points intersect the fold lines as shown, stop and hold in place. Crease across the bottom, just between the fold lines. Repeat for each of the five sides. Fold each point in half, working toward the inner (small) pentagon. Flip the paper over and pinch the corners of the (small) pentagon to make sure they are well creased. Flip back to the front side. Turn the star over. Pre-crease each star point.

page corner bookmarks This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks. Page corner bookmarks are cute, practical and deeply under-represented in the world.* They’re easy to make, easy to customize, and will set you apart from all those same-same flat rectangular bookmarks. If you like this tutorial, here are a couple others that might be up your alley. If you’re loving the toothy monster vibe, check out these simple monster heating bags, filled with rice or wheat and entirely microwavable, to keep toes or fingers or tummies warm during the chilly winter months. What you’ll need: Putting it all together: 1) Follow steps 2 and 3 from above.

Origami by Andrew Anselmo - Dollar Bill Origami One of my specialties is folding with US currency, or "dollar bill" origami. US currency, regardless of denomination (and unlike traditional square origami paper) is in the proportions of 3:7, and therefore can be the basis of some interesting models. Here are some of the ones I've designed; all diagrams are in Adobe PDF format. Original Designs More Original Designs Dollar Bill Bouncer I found this a while ago, and am finally putting it online! A short video shows how it works. Dollar Bill Octagonal Ring - The Great Seal/Unfinished Pyramid Many dollar bill rings have been created; this is my own version. More Dollar Bill designs

Origami is amazing - the traditional Japanese art or technique of folding paper into a variety of decorative or representational forms, as of animals or flowers. Origami is An Amazing Art now "origamoney"... koi carp butterfly camera tank dragon crab shark spider scorpion toilet and of course a penguin.. Please visit stories, etc. for more pictures, stories, etc. Art Flight of Folds: Monument Modern origami is a unique sculptural art. Each origami design must be individually folded; there is no mass-production process. My designs are folded from selected papers, some of which I have made myself, others obtained from master artisans, each paper chosen to complement the design and composition. All of the art pieces on display in the galleries are my own compositions. The work to the right is my newest composition; click on the image, or any of the sections below, to learn more. Compositions Origami, like music, permits both composition and performance as expressions of the art. Commercial Art Origami can be used effectively in web, print, and television advertising and I have created commissioned pieces for several print, television, and animation projects. Collector Art I do most of my work on commission, both for commercial usage and for private collectors. For all commissioned work please contact me for price and availability. Metal Sculptures
