Spinning Toy

Post by origami_8 »

My little neffew is thinking that I can fold everything that he can imagine, so he´s always telling me what to fold when he is visiting me. Today he told me to fold a lot of planes in different colours. So I did (in fact I made this butterflys, but that doesn´t matter for him). Then he told me "now make them hanging on a paper carousel so that I can push it and the planes are spinning around". Therefore he gave me two sheets of A4 paper. From one of these I made a stand, the second one I made square and made a disc to hang the eight planes on. The hardest part was to configure the planes so that they had become a hanging mechanism secure enough that they don´t fall apart while twisting.

The result can be seen here:
