Scalloped Tato Boxes

Some folks were asking for blank scalloped tato box patterns, so that they could make their own. By all means: 7-Sided Tato Box, Scalloped 8-Sided Tato Box, Scalloped The logo should be centered at the midpoint of the polygon’s sides, which is also the radius of the semicircle. There will be some loss of the […]

How Blue Can You Get?

For those who can’t be bothered with ranting: Barack Box Crease Pattern (2.5 MB) It’s been a while since we launched into one of our trademark political rants and indeed, the evil of these times has been so oppressive that our obligation to denounce the manifold sins and wickedness of the present administration sometimes slips […]

Tumbling Dice

I was rooting around in my file cabinet, looking for some piece of prose about Wendy that I had written during the Pliocene or the Pleistocene, and I came across this crease pattern. I remember drawing it — it was probably for Imagiro, an APA I belonged to, once upon a time. The model itself […]

Looking through a Glass Onion

According to the stats machines at Flickr, this is one of the most interesting photos I’ve ever taken. I am not one to argue with machines — they tend to equivocate and braid sorites and they’re absolutely useless with analogies. I have an old Thinkpad somewhere that believes that a raven and a writing desk […]

‘Leventy-Seven Bowl

Yesterday, on the way home, I ran into Wendy, who was sitting on the sidewalk, begging. To be fair, it’s not something she does often. But such sights always throw me into ethical conniptions. Do you give them money, do you not give them money, do you give money to a third party…it doesn’t matter. […]

Catch a Falling Star

We’re back from the Convention in New York and our head is still spinning a bit, but not so’s you’d notice. We can report that a good time was had by all and that Mélisande*‘s and my class on Monday went very well, indeed. Tato boxes were the topic of the day and it was […]

This and That

We have been uncharacteristically quiet of late — it goes with the Marshwiggle physiognomy and the unwieldy amounts of pollen in the air. But there are a few things that want mentioning. ¶ Much thought is going into tato boxes, whereof the dining room is slowly being buried. A crease pattern for the above. It’s […]

The Lousy Susan

Because the Lazy Susan is the oldest version I know of the kaki lock, I keep coming back to it. Here, I just keep the central compartment — hence, the name — and turn the other four into Argentine pleating. (Robert Harbin says such pleating comes from Argentina and I will not argue with him.) […]

The Petunia Bowl

I like this model because it traps very little paper to very good effect. I was going to figure out how much of the surface area was hidden, but then thought, who cares? It’s a beautiful spring, finally. Man is the animal who measures, but also the one who doesn’t have to. Me, I’m no […]
