Make an easy Tangram puzzle with just paper! This origami Chinese Tangram puzzle makes a clever gift for those who enjoy geometric shapes. Easy to make from some square sheets of paper.

Sadly Francis Ow passed away at the end of June, I had a few conversations with him over the past few years, one of which was about his origami tangram designs. He kindly gave me permission to create tutorials for his tangrams, I wish I had done the tutorial at the time, but never got around to it.

So this tutorial is dedicated to him, a great origami designer, check out his work at http://owrigami.com

A diagram is available for this tangram here: http://owrigami.com/show_diagram.php?diagram=tangram2

Large triangles (& small triangles) – 1:59
Parallelogram – 4:31
Square – 8:18
Medium triangle – 10:14

Design: © Francis Ow
Level: ★★☆☆☆

▸ 4 sheets of square paper
▸ Scissors (to trim at the start)

To pre trim paper:
▸ 2 sheets square (15 x 15 cm)
▸ 3 sheets of half square (15 x 7.5 cm)
▸ 2 sheets of square paper (quarter – 7.5 x 7.5 cm)

Paper size example: 15 x 15 cm
Final model size: 10.4 x 10.4 cm

Origami photo frame box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_S8RG3CGYE ?
To make the frame you’ll need paper 2 times the size of the tangram, so if your tangram is 10.4 x 10.4 cm, you’ll need 21 x 21 cm for the frame box. And also remember 1 cm for the frame measurement ..

bluparakeet says:

when you said you are making the medium rectangle, you were making a triangle

colaptesauratus says:

i used 15x15cm paper to make all the tangram pieces, and the finished tangram square is only about 10.5×10.5cm. so i should be able to use another piece of 15x15cm to make the frame, right? according to your "1.4 times the size of the tangram" figure, since 10.5*1.4=14.7.
