Giant Checkers Set

by Don
(Texas)

This is my giant origami checkers set. The entire board is an entire 64-piece modular set. The individual checker pieces were made from double-sided paper. I ended up quartering them, so I ended up using only 6 sheets for the pieces. The board was bought in 64 separate sheets of 12x12 cardstock-I almost ended up emptying both shelves at Hobby Lobby. I don't remember what the entire purchase price was, but it was well over $50, making it my most expensive project ever.

I should probably tell you that neither model is my design. The modular board was designed by Kim Best and can be found at origami.com (titled Modular Chessboard). The checker piece is on origamiusa.org and was designed by Sy Chen.
