Harrumph. Hellooooo? Is this thing on?
So here’s a blog, right, for all my origami pictures and diagrams to live in. They’re mostly modular origami, but only mostly; sometimes the craftiness gets out of control and escapes from origami entirely and turns into baking or sewing or something.
To start off, here’s a nice simple modular unit to try out – the Rum & Raisin unit. Yes, that’s a terribly silly name for it. It’s not entirely my fault. Homemade fudge was involved.
If you’d like some Rum & Raisin structures of your very own, here’s what you do. There’s a bit of leeway on the exact shape of the rectangle you start with. I used A6 because that’s most easily available in these parts. Quarters of whatever shape of paper you get in ordinary notebooks wherever you are is probably fine too.
Six of these will get you a nice stellated tetrahedron. That is fancy talk for “a pyramid with an extra pyramid stuck to each face”. Have fun!
