### How To : Create a tetrahedra origami with five intersections

Origami purists will argue that all origami creations, no matter how complex, should be folded from one single sheet of paper, but the rules were made to be broken, right? If you've already mastered the art of one-sheet origami projects like frogs and cranes, challenge yoursel ...more

### News : Modular Origami

Cory has posted some great picture of Father Magnus' intersecting cubes (the great man is holding one in his right hand) - well the above is what happens when five tetrahedra intersect. It is modular origami and made from just ten sheets of origami paper. technically in a fold ...more

### News : Nice Range of Modular Models

A source of inspiration... Models folded and photographed by Michal Kosmulski. There are only two sets of instructions on the site, but they are very well done. I wish he had covered more of the models. Here are a few I would like to tackle (I'll admit my eyes are bigger than ...more
