Modular origami is a type of origami in which complex creations are made from several pieces of paper which, in some way, fit or work together to create one, larger creation. This type of origami is impressive when done properly.
In modular origami, artists create smaller origami creations that link together impressively.
When creating modular origami like this one with open spaces, it helps to have experience. Do each fold of the paper carefully, to ensure that the next folds can form evenly and precisely.
To create modular origami, insert flaps into pockets from one individual module or section to the next, which is what creates the tension that holds the structure in place.
Bouquet of Flowers
Create a bouquet of flowers that interlocks at the stem using modular origami techniques. Use the bouquet for wedding showers or even as a special gift to a loved one.
Create a beautiful origami star. Here, you can see a close up of how the folds tuck into the pockets to lock in place.
Flat Modular Origami
Modular origami can be created flat, as these bills are locked together. It is important to note that the paper is not cut in any way in any of these creations.
Modular origami can even be fun, like this origami bunny. Remember, with origami, no glue is used to hold the pieces in place.
Simple or Complex
Modular origami can be simplistic or complex, depending on the design you select. For inspiration, try making 3D origami figures.
