Cross - Jared Needle

Cross - Jared Needle, originally uploaded by Origami Weekly.

Happy Easter!

I designed the first version of this cross back in 2006. I've changed it a bit over the years, eventually happening upon 1/3 being the magic reference point that made all the flaps of desired width.

This simple-looking design contains quite a few treats for the folder. There is a tight closed-sink--it's not super difficult, but you have to be careful. Also, it uses three different locking procedures to keep it together.

Here are the diagrams:

The version above was folded by me from a 6 inch square of origami paper.

As usual, thanks for being a part of Origami Weekly. Remember, we are always interested in seeing you all fold our work!

See you again next week!
