Hexaflexagons!

Hexaflexagons are hexagonal folded bits of paper that can be inverted onto themselves to show multiple faces. Watch the video for more information, the reason this phenomenon happens is that the Hexaflexagons are a flattened out folded up Möbius strip. I had a go at this yesterday using patterns I found on the flexagon portal it’s quite simple.

I think these would make for some pretty cool business cards.

Vihart actually posts quite a lot of cool maths related videos, it’s worth checking them out.

Curse Your Sudden But Inevitable Betrayal! – Origami Edition

I was looking at photos I’d taken on my phone and realized that this photo kind of fits the Firefly “Cure Your Sudden But Inevitable Betrayal!” meme.

If you are wondering what the hell I’m talking about watch this, it’s relatively spoiler free:

I can’t remember where I get the instructions for these two dinosaurs but I think it was origami resource center’s dinosaur page the stegosaurus is Baby Stegosaurus (FG Gomez) and the raptor looks a lot like Procompsognathus by Stephen O’Hanlon.

Go forth and and fold!

Sterling Silver Origami Necklaces

I bought @Avarinne something like this from a craft market a while ago, but I don’t think it was Sterling Silver if it was it certainly didn’t cost as much as these things do… Still they are very pretty. They are on sale for the next day or so: Origami Crane (Above) Origami Triceratops & Origami Dog (Below) all $139.50

Origami Tea Bags

Russian Artist/Designer Natalia Ponomareva has created this concept for Origami tea bags. I love tea and I love origami so it saddens me that this is just a concept. I also wonder why she chose the above “Dove” design over the more recognisable “crane” especially since the crane has a ready made compartment to put the tea leaves.

Jello + Origami = Jellogami

Jello + Origami = Jellogami

I’m a big fan of Jello/Jelly (depending on which side of the pond you hail from. I’m also a fan of origami, so when I found out that a group of people called My Jello Americans (You could not make this up…) Had made “Jello Origami” I was extatic! Okay maybe not extatic but a smile did creep across my face…
