Origami Spike Ball
I think this Spike Ball is really cute. It reminds me of a bunch of “cootie catchers” all stuck together.
This interesting project was initially designed by Rona Gukewitz and Bennett Arnstein in 1996 in 3D Geometric Origami: Modular Polyhedra by Dover Publications.
I have 2 children both of which go to university. I spend most of my time crafting. I like to make origami, 3D paper projects, greeting cards, and lots more. I mostly work with my Silhouette Cameo, Curio, and Mint. Happy Crafting!
I did all the steps and can’t get it right. Also, after step 2, it gets really confusing. Explain it better and with more steps.
Andrew – I am so sorry you had a hard time. I will work on the directions, thanks for the feedback. Did you ever get it to work?
It was actually pretty clear with the pictures included. I’m a visual person so that made all the difference. I would like to make this with my niece. She has ADD so it will take months to finish unless I do it myself….which I usually end up doing anyway.
I would appreciate your giving credit for the design of the Spike Ball to me, Rona Gurkewitz
and Bennett Arnstein. Our diagrams were published in 1996 in 3D Geometric Origami, Modular Polyhedra
Oh my goodness, I’m so sorry Rona. Thanks for informing me..what a great model.
This is cool! Thank you for posting this!
