I learned to make this from a book (sorpresas de papel)about 6 years ago,in the book they use them as a hot air balloon, theyÂ´re good for so many things,I use them as decoration,for gifts,earrings,and also make a lamp!,Use magazine pages,recycle some paper, If you want to tell a secret to someone, put the message on it,this is the most versatile origami IÂ´ve ever made,itÂ´s really easy,so enjoy!
Use a paper square,that measures the same wide and long,fold diagonal IMPORTANT: If you use colored paper,put the color side down.
Do the same both sides.
Fold vertical and horizontal.
If you want to write a message(use tiny letter),just in the center of your folded paper,(on the non colored side).
This is how it looks when you make the origami magic triangle(instructions in the next step).
Fold in half,holding the lateral points,bring them down to the centre point of the square,(click on the images for a clearest view).
Fold the sides to meet the center
Now you got this,do the same the other sides.
It must look like this.
Again,fold the sides to meet the center.
Make a little pocket with them.
Put the triangles into the small pockets.
Repeat on the other sides too.
It looks like this,carefully,blow on the center to inflate it.
By now,you have this.
And youÂ´re actually finished.
To read the message,just see the cube back light.
