Magic rose cube

I made this red and green cube out of six interlocking units. It’s really easy to make, especially if you’ve done modular origami before. It looks like any ordinary cube, right?


Well, something interesting happens when you pull out the triangular-shaped parts of the three red faces!

P1000477My ordinary cube has now become a rose! I love the simplicity of this piece. Just be careful when pulling out and putting away the petals, as the paper is prone to tearing.

Want to try this yourself? The instructions are linked here. Have fun!

Materials: Three pieces of red and green 14cm square paper
