Model: Origami Burr Puzzle

Paper: Double-sided Patterned Paper
So what is a Burr Puzzle?
It’s an interlocking puzzle made from multiple pieces of wood, that combined create a three-dimensional unit. Even though traditionally those puzzles are made of wood, you can find versions made from other materials, like metal, plastic or in our case, paper.

For my model I used double-sided origami paper I found at the DM store. It has the same pattern on both side, but on one it has more red and on the other, it has more white. I thought this would create a nice effect on the model as when you assemble it as the model is symmetrical. You can see all the six pieces in the photo below. I just love how they look.
They are also easy to fold and whence you understand how they can lock each other in place, you will find it easy to assemble as well.
I haven’t made any photo when I’m assembling them, but you can see how in this video. I did play with them thought. I think they look so cute and make a good decoration item, as a whole puzzle or even just as modules.
I will let you enjoy the next photos and hope you will fold this origami burr puzzle as well. You can always tell me your experience in the comments or tag me on social media. I would love to see what paper you would choose to fold it.
