Re: [nashvilleorigami] Hiya
- I did some research into the gum wrapper chain purses recently...
Every one I found was just the standard chain stitched together at the
edges with thread or fishing line. I have been trying to come up with
a 2d tiling variant with a similar link and lock to the classic chain,
with little success. I have exhausted the possibilities with 1x3
units and am now looking into patterns using 1x4 units.

The two best were a modular star design made up of triangles and a flower shape that slid apart to form a ring. The entire school was awash in paper folding for a few weeks. I've been trying to figure out how to make something out of the classic gum wrapper chain shape. I've seen bags and wallets made from this but it might be a little too difficult for 12-14 year olds.
