modular origami: rings by Mette Pederson

I’ve wanted to make some rings, modular rings. I though that it should be fun and the result pretty. No surprise after I’ve made them: fun and easy to do and pretty and cute to look at.

modular ring, 18 units

modular ring, 10 units

After seeing these a friend of mine asked me if I could teach her origami because it’s cute. I have to make a selection of simple models for that matter. And find some time, of course.
These were made with the simple and easy to find coloured copy paper; both rings were made with small paper. I can’t remember if it was with 5×5 cm or 7×7 cm but it was one of these. The rings are small; the 18 units is a little bigger than the 10 units one but even though they are small. For bigger rings, bigger paper! You can actually find lots of pretty papers out there that are just crying to be transformed in something. Why not a couple of rings?

I find these rings very amusing due to their simplicity. You actually have no excuse to don’t have fun with them, behold my clumsy step by step instructions: modular rings page 1 and page 2. Let’s all enjoy modular origami :)

    I love these origami rings! I’ve already been hooked on them. I’ve made three rings already. I’ve been making the rings with ten pieces only, but I’m going to try the eighteen unit ring as a challenge. It’s a bit difficult to make the eighteen unit ring with one-sixteenth of a piece of six-inched paper! They are really small, and they only work well with the 10 unit ring!

    Good luck with your next origami project!

      Margaret, try to do a bigger ring: each ring unit is a smaller ring ;) I started doing one but I haven’t had the time to fold more pieces… It seems the simpler rings hold no secrets to you ((:
