Polyhedra Origami (single sheet of paper)

This page is dedicated to origami polyhedra - paper polyhedron models made from a single sheet of paper. These include 3D geometric shapes such as cubes, tetrahedrons, pyramids and more. Polyhedra made with a single sheet of paper is somewhat more rare and difficult to fold; most are the crease-and-collapse type. In contrast, origami polyhedra made using many sheets of paper is quite abundant. Click here to read about modular origami and here to get free diagrams.
