crane box

In Boxes on June 19, 2011 by romi


 
Kunihiko Kasahara, in his book The Art and Wonder of Origami, showed forty-two so-called basic forms developed by the German educator Friedrich Froebel (1782-1852) who also originated the kindergarten system. The author also demonstrated how to fold a basic form into a flower box. I designed the crane box model above with my own version of a basic form, which involves sinking the tip of each corner and then folding each corner the way you fold a flap from a bird base. Then, the form is converted into a box with four flaps. One flap is folded into a crane head, and the opposite flap is folded into a crane tail.
