Crossword Puzzle Origami Frame: Something from almost nothing #2

Why has it never occured to me to cut out the crossword puzzle that is in every newspaper and do some origami with it? After all, the crossword puzzles are square, and they always have this fun looking pattern of blanks and solids.

I suppose any origami structure would look good with crossword puzzle paper.

I chose to make a paper frame. It’s easy, assembles much like those fortune teller toys that kids make, except for the last step. I could have slipped a picture into the corners of the frame, but instead I colored in all the squares (after the folds were done).

If you want to see how to make this frame, here’s my Paper Frame PDf… I made these directions for a project a long time ago, so but the basic directions are the same. Just be sure to start with the crossword puzzle image face down. You won’t see any of it until the last step.

Let me know if you make one of these!
