Champagne Flute

The bold lines are cut marks.

Yes, yes — blasphemy. Okay, you don’t have to cut on the bold lines. If you wrap the fifth part, it’ll hold together just as well. Me, I just think it’s a more satisfying model if you give it a little cut, either side.

C’mon – how pure do you want to be?

    I think making this in rice paper and with some kind of metal support could turn it in my brand new bedroom lamp….I’ll try :P
    thank you for sharing, as always :)

    If you let a few mm extra paper on the longest sides of the printed CP, you can fold it inside at both edges of your flûte, and it holds well without the cuts.

    Just an idea I had while folding this excellent model.
    And please don’t call me purist, it would be an offense.

    I like that — and it would prevent paper cuts when we’re drinking. Might even be able to go back to a square with that idea.

    On another note, even though the trackback detector did not go off, I found this to be an interesting take on the flute.

    Arn’t you developing a rather devoted following:) Thanks for the cp. This is the first model that took more time to print and cut out than to fold. It is delightfully elegant and quick.

    This is pretty cool:
    There was a neat screenshot of a computer model here, done by computer animators, denizens of Disney. It’s gone away.

    How can we get instructions to make the champagne flute?
    Thanks!

    There’s a link to the crease pattern right below the photo. There really aren’t any instructions. If you fold it, you’ll see why.
