When Rebecca Met Shuzo 1, by Robert J. Lang
This design is part of a set of 3, and you can find photos and diagrams on Robert J. Lang’s website. Although his models are 3 inches wide, and mine is only 3 cm wide.
This model caught my eye not just because it looks nice, but because it looked relatively simple to replicate (which is not true of most of Lang’s models). The biggest difficulty was that the very first step was to fold the paper in 5ths in one direction, and 13ths in the other direction.
To fold paper into 13ths, you could probably just use a ruler, or a printer for that matter. I am not above such tools. But if we can do it by origami instead, well wouldn’t that be nice? So how do we use pure origami to fold paper into 13ths? Instructions below the fold.
