How to corner paper?

Post by Nanmaniac »

HI there... I'd need some help...
I've been working with some folds in order to achieve different kind of corners. As you can see in the image, I've cornered a square of paper (corner OK) with the base in the interior of the corner.
But I'd love to corner a paper with the base in the outer part of the corner (corner ?)
Any suggestions?
I'll thank them!!!!
No modular please!!

That´s a very interesting challenge!
If the edge shall be a real edge and not two different parts of the paper brought together, it seems impossible that it doesn´t cover some paper between its two faces.

Here is my first and second guess and Gerwin´s solution:

1. Try (front and top view):

2. Try (front and underside):

I´m curious to see other results.

Oh, thanks thanks thanksss
I needed your first try. I've modified a little bit, cos I'm using this corners to build some walls for a building.
See the variation:

You can see what I do with these corners and walls:
First of all my previous model of corner:

This wall is perfect to join two walls like this:

The work in progress:

It's really easy and the wall is firmly attached to the corner.
I'll show you some examples...

ON the bottom left corner of the picture you can see a white corner attached to a wall. That's the new model of corner. It is used for tha kind of corners (the walls are better fixed together in this kind of corner....there are two types of corners, if you see them).
Another former example:
