Variation on V'Ann Cornelius' Origami Picture Frame

Merry Christmas!

Diagrams of the 4 piece model appeared in OUSA's The Paper. A few years back, WCOG members were folding it, and Jim Cowling doodled with folding it from one piece of paper.

Recently, I revisited the model and refined it down to the proportioning shown in the video.

I'm a fan of origami frames, but this model is especially fascinating!! Very ingenious and clever model. Thank you very much for the instructions! I'll try it soon!!!

PS: Is there any publication of its diagram somewhere? Everyone would love it!

Hey Carol,

I believe it's published in one of the OUSA Convention books; I think I have it, but not sure what year; if I find it, I'll post back here.

In the published diagrams, I think it's in 4 parts that you slide together and connect (I think).

I believe it was Jim Cowling at one of our WCOG meetings that decided to modify it to a single sheet.

Okay...duh. It says so right in my own video!

I must be getting old...
