 Our October workshop will be a fun interactive structure taught by our member from York, England, Margaret Beech. We will make two identical origami boxes, which when laced together in an ingenious way make a Revolving Cube. Margaret promises that this is much easier than it sounds, but suggests that you watch a short video by NORBAG member Nancy Akerly demonstrating her "Rolling Cube" or 

Special thanks to Nancy for the original instructions.

For one cube you will make two identical size origami boxes, so please cut in advance:

  • Two 7" squares of decorative paper (good weight)
  • Two 2 1/2" squares of the same paper used for the box
  • Three 7" x 1/2" strips for the lacing, colored on both sides. Note: If your paper is lightweight then cut the strips 1" wide, fold in half lengthwise and glue together.
Also, cut the following pieces from light cardstock. Margaret recycles old greeting cards; these will be concealed inside the boxes. Please have them cut in advance.
  • Two 2 1/2" squares (these will reinforce the bottom of each box
  • Eight 2 1/2" x 1 1/4" pieces (these will reinforce the sides of the boxes
