Decorative Origami Cube 1





Introduction: Decorative Origami Cube 1

Here's a cool looking cube from 12 squares of paper. It is a great decoration, and can also *be stood on its corner*. Enjoy

*edit* I made a variation to this model that doesn't involve folding thirds ;)

Step 1: Folding the Units

get 12 sheets of paper.
*warning*: this model uses thirds ;-) thirds can be really annoying, but are ok if you get the hang of them. If you want to avoid thirds, go ahead and try my Decorative Origami Cube 2

Step 2: Assemble the Cube

You should have twelve units...
while assembling, be gentle with the units -- if something isn't working, try to ease it in from another angle, or partially unfold a flap

-- heres a video on how to put them together --
