Models with Pictures of Precreased Sheets

In this album you can find models for which a picture of the paper sheet pre-creased before folding is available. Have a look at How I Precrease Paper for Tessellations to learn how these patterns are created.

Braided Pinwheel Tessellation (variant C)

Braided Pinwheel Tessellation (variant C)

This is variant C of Braided Pinwheel Tessellation. The molecule looks like a combination of variant A and variant B molecule. There are quite a few layers o...

Parallelograms (clean fold)

Parallelograms (clean fold)

When I originally folded Parallelograms in 2020, I designed a clean pre-crease pattern, pre-creased the sheet, and then… was unable to collapse it cleanly. I...

Yellow Brick Road

Yellow Brick Road

In line with the distinction made in my post on naming origami models, this design is called Brick Road while the particular work seen here is called Yellow ...

Box with Woven Triangles XI

Box with Woven Triangles XI

In this Woven Triangles variant, pleats are not locked as strongly as in others, which will probably make folding a real multi-molecule tessellation neatly h...

Crowding Butterflies (diagonal 48 grid)

Crowding Butterflies (diagonal 48 grid)

In the description of my recent Hydrangea Tessellation fold, I mentioned that I had recently experimented with different variants of the “leaves” which form ...

Shifted Bricks

Shifted Bricks

Despite similar looks, this tessellation is not Momotani’s Wall — it is a different pattern designed by myself. Its relation to Momotani’s Wall is roughly su...

Egg Cup II

Egg Cup II

This cup is a design derived from Lucky Star Box (Simplified) Variant B and the PreCP (Precrease Pattern) is the same. The paper used to form the star in the...

Box with Woven Triangles XIII

Box with Woven Triangles XIII

When folding this box, I thought I was making a clean fold of Box with Woven Triangles XVI, but I missed one detail and ended up with yet another design. You...

Box with Woven Triangles I

Box with Woven Triangles I

This is a simple box with a molecule of Woven Triangles Tessellation I. My first attempt at folding this model resulted in a slightly modified molecule and e...

San Francisco Bay

San Francisco Bay

A view of San Francisco Bay, folded from a single square of Satogami paper. This origami painting is not based on any singular image, but a compilation of mu...

Shamrock Tessellation 1.1

Shamrock Tessellation 1.1

This is an improved version of my Shamrock Tessellation. It uses Flagstone Paneling technique in order to hide pleats, so that each shamrock is separated fro...

Box with Woven Triangles VII

Box with Woven Triangles VII

In this variant, the triangles are located in a deeper layer of paper, as if peeking through an opening in a wall.

Pythagorean Tiling with 3:2 Ratio

Pythagorean Tiling with 3:2 Ratio

This model is the same as the first Pythagorean Tiling variant I folded, but the side length ratio of big squares to small squares is 3:2 instead of 2:1. As ...

Whirlwind Box

Whirlwind Box

This box is decorated with Whirlwind molecule which can also be used for a tessellation. Its design is closely related to my Woven Triangles family, but I ga...

Shamrock 1.1 Box (Refold)

Shamrock 1.1 Box (Refold)

A new fold of my Shamrock 1.1 Box — compared to the previous one, I managed to fold and shape the stem in a cleaner way. The shamrock can be tessellated.

Pythagorean Tiling

Pythagorean Tiling

The pattern this origami tessellation represents is known as Pythagorean Tiling or Two Squares Tessellation. I came up with this design independently, but it...

Box with Woven Triangles IV

Box with Woven Triangles IV

This origami box is decorated with a tessellation molecule from the Woven Triangle family. In contrast to Woven Triangles I, II, and III, Woven Triangles IV ...

Triangles (16×16 grid)

Triangles (16×16 grid)

This origami tessellation is derived from my earlier Parallelograms Tessellation. By piecing together two symmetric “halves” of a parallelogram, we end up wi...

Greek Cross Flagstone Tessellation

Greek Cross Flagstone Tessellation

This origami tessellation was inspired by a pavement pattern I noticed some time ago in my home city of Lublin, Poland, at the old cemetery and in the open-a...

Lucky Star Fractal Tessellation

Lucky Star Fractal Tessellation

This is a tessellation of the Lucky Star Fractal. The standalone star was designed independently by several people, starting with Shuzo Fujimoto. I don’t kno...

Sunflower Tessellation (Refold)

Sunflower Tessellation (Refold)

It took me 1½ years before I decided to fold my Sunflower Tessellation once again, this time from rare yellow Elephant Hide paper. I think this is a better ...

Dune Tessellation

Dune Tessellation

A new design of mine, Dune Tessellation (long slit variant).

Corrugation: Shark Teeth

Corrugation: Shark Teeth

My new iso-area origami corrugation which I called Shark Teeth due to the sharp triangular molecules of which it is composed. Like many other corrugations, t...

Bed of Nails 3D Tessellation

Bed of Nails 3D Tessellation

Bed of Nails 3D, an origami tessellation folded from a single sheet of Elephant Hide paper; no cutting or glue. It is possible to adjust the length of the sp...

Double-Blintzed Bird Base Corrugation

Double-Blintzed Bird Base Corrugation

After tessellating the blintzed bird base, a natural next step for me was to double-blintz it. Bird base blintzed two times can be tessellated, and it result...

Saturn Tessellation

Saturn Tessellation

This tessellation is based on a 128×92 grid. Image is created from a four-sink-base tessellation by folding up some of the squares’ corners. While I’ve seen ...

Four-Sink-Base Tessellation

Four-Sink-Base Tessellation

This kind of tessellation is not very interesting in itself, but has been invented and used by many authors independently as basis for more advanced designs....
