Criss cross fold / Papercraft

cross
This interesting shape is totally made by accident when I was searching for a fold for a cross sections. However this looks interesting and might be usefull but actually got bit too much folds and also, I needed one with more squared shapes of each 4 sections. But this looks interesting to make a tesselation art with multiple of these on a single piece of paper.

This one is more like what I am searching for however still isn't really that easy to fold though especially if you have seen how it looks like from the bottom. This shape looks very impossible when you look at, but it is not cut in any way but only folded to this shape making is possible to have a enclosed shape possible for sealed packaging.

Eventually I found the fold I needed actually was pretty much the first fold I wanted but wanted to see into other possibilities first, but I am not displaying that fold because I am using it for a contest. I am sure there more folds that could be place in a middle of a crossing section though. I will be using these kind of folds for packaging though and also will search for more, next step is to search for one that is in the middle of more sections then 4.

This is a pop up CD packaging using a well know pop up beak design, this is one of the most basic pop up card design there is. However it is not originally my design however this is an interesting design. Here below is the template of it that you can make one yourself. This packaging is way better then the Pochup which could never stay flat unless you put it between a telephone book.

Printing on sponge

Well am learning this myself though but its quite usefull as it's not a technique that is openly published how to do actually. But today I done several tries and even learned few extra things along the way. But mainly learned this so I dont have to pay stupid expensive prices most of the companies ask when for doing this. However I do need to see how i could cure the inkt cause it need to be heaten up so it won't wash off when there is accidentally get water poured over it.
