Browsing the Modular Origami Group on flickr again, and saw some people who’ve done this. It seemed like it would be fun to do, and fit the number of papers I had perfectly!

Used the 120 sheet pack of origami paper, plus 2 cut sheets of wrapping paper, to make these 7 puzzle pieces. Since there were so many colors, I thought that I would unify the pieces’ appearance by doing it in the Striped Sonobe variation by MM, which highlights the reverse side.

I glued it to make sure that the pieces would stay together when people are playing with it. haha, I had to try quite a few times before figuring it out.

      Hey Alan! Do you know how to make the Sonobe unit? Basically, you just fold a lot of these, and assemble them, so as to create the individual pieces. It’s really easy, but time consuming, if you ever want to try. 😀
