Modular Origami

This page has links to all the modular projects on this site. 

 As opposed to origami models folded out of one piece of paper, modular origami involves the folding of 2 or more units or modules, which are then fitted together to form an object. Usually the pieces are folded in a similar way and fitted together without tape or glue. Modular origami may involve folding anything from the 2-piece traditional menko (a flat envelope) to incredibly complex models comprising hundreds of folded pieces. If you love origami and also love puzzles, modular origami is for you.
