Origami Chess!


Did you know that you can construct an entire chess set out of a single piece of paper?

It's true.

I found these instructions while surfing the web and had to try it myself.

If you include the board, I guess it's actually two sheets of paper.

Nevertheless, it's still pretty impressive.





The best thing about these sets is that each one is unique. For instance, I chose a red and white color scheme, and decided to use little pyramids for the pawns, and boxes for the rooks. I also used moist toilet paper to add some weight and allow all the pieces to easily stand up.

I'd love to see what you guys can come up with :D

If anyone decides to make their own set, please send me the pictures!

This way if you're ever trapped on a desert island with two sheets of paper you'll know what to do ;)

Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
Is it hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking
about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? With thanks

What i do not understood is in truth how you are no longer really much
more smartly-appreciated than you might be now.
You are very intelligent. You realize therefore considerably in the case of this topic, produced me in my
view imagine it from numerous numerous angles. Its like women and men are
not fascinated unless it is something to do with Lady gaga!
Your personal stuffs great. All the time maintain it up!

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you
could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?

I seldom leave responses, but after reading through a few
of the comments on this page "Origami Chess!".
I do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or does it seem like a few of the remarks appear like they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional online social sites, I would like to keep up with you. Would you list of all of your social community sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
