Introduction: Origami Ferris Wheel

An origami ferris wheel made out of gum wrappers.  The shaft holding the wheel in place is an old foil wrapper from the outside of a 15 pack of gum.  They aren't making those much anymore.  The rest of the wrappers are from gum sticks for 5 gum.  Enjoy and let me know what you think.  This is my first ferris wheel.

     Very impressive!  How long did all that work take?  It looks extremely difficult (small precision folds, and small parts).

    Thanks, I don't time myself so am not sure how long it takes.  It is rather labor intensive, but the design process is the lengthiest because I'm just making stuff up as I go.  It is a little tough to make some folds, but a little patience and anyone could do it.  I rarely use any tools - they don't help much.  Occationally I use tweezers to grab a piece and pull it through.
