Don't worry, I'm not selling anything. Just giving a shoutout to one of my open-source side projects:

I created a programming language for beginners and am looking for people to test it out. If you have a spare moment (particularly if you haven't programmed before) and you're interested in making 2D games, please check it out.

Origami Thingamajig


You will need 6 pieces of paper. Fan them out all pretty-like like this.


Pick one color.


Fold it in half horizontally and vertically


Now fold the edges to one of the center creases


And fold the other edges to the other center crease


Dig in there and pull the corners out (see the pin wheel instructions for further explaination)


Lift triangular flaps up and squish them flat into a square. Like the picture.


Yes, like that


Do that to all of them


Do this


To all of them!


Then undo it


Now tuck two opposite corners into the pockets


Remember those small creases I made you make? Now fold those creases IN


Now fold the corner


If it's one of the untucked corners, then it should look like this


Fold similarly for all 4 corners


Now you have 4 "inner" corners that you will now fold to the center


Do it for all of them


So now it should look like this. Do this for all 6 sheets of paper


Thingamajig party! Start linking them together in a cube


The long parts should fit snugly in the pocket parts.


And it will look like this.
