The Origami Checkerboard Puzzle


by Serhiy Grabarchuk

Home / Projects / Packs & Collections / Our Collection /

You have a square piece of paper colored on one its side and white on the other; it's a traditional ("standard") paper shape for most Origami creations. 

The object is to fold it several times so that you get a smaller square with the checkered pattern shown in Figure 1. How to do this with eight folds is shown in Figure 2. 

Now your task is to get the pattern first with seven folds, then with six folds, and finally with only five single folds. Of course, you may use a new square piece of paper for every of these puzzles - it's more convenient.
