Decorative Origami Cube 2





Introduction: Decorative Origami Cube 2

This is an alternative design to my Decorative Origami Cube 1 instructable (yeah, I got creative with the names...) that doesn't use thirds.

This Cube is a cool-looking modular piece requiring 12 squares of paper.
I used 3 different colors, but you can do whatever you want.

Step 1: Fold the Units

Fold twelve of these guys. You can do different color combinations, but I've found that paper with color on one side, white on the other looks the coolest.

btw the green lines mean fold...

Step 2: Assemble the Cube

Just follow the pictures

this was sorda hard, but I made it

Yet another one that does not have the complete set of instructions. If you are going to show people how to do something with pictures please atleast show every single fold, not just what it looks like in between.

Hey I was wondering if I can use this on my website?

ohhhh last two units assemblage is really quite difficult but i have done it and enjoyed it hahaha

it is too fiddly for me to assemble it and please could you make a video or write instructions to make it easier for me please.

hey what is the fold in the 4th picture is ti half 4ths or thirds?


The instructions were easy to follow! This was a great way to have fun with my Geometry classes! Thank you!!

Great Instructable! Clear and precise! I'm using this for a school project on Origami. Thanks!
