Introduction: Origami Burr Puzzle 6 Pieces
I found of origami for years, I made lots of creations. Among them, my favourites are the usable ones in daily life. In this instructable, I explain how you can make an origami burr puzzle. Once you fold its pieces, constructing the puzzle can be good for your children aged +7. The final puzzle is around 10 cm by height.
Though it is harder to show every crease and folding in photos rather than diagrams, I tried to show them clearly.
