'Twirl' Ring (Design by Krystyna Burczyk)

This is my first attempt at folding Krystyna Burczyk’s origami models and I found that her designs are simple and fun to fold. She has many designs based on Twirls which are modular by nature and she has released around 3 books with their diagrams. I think her books also include variations on the folding.

This particular model – Twirl Ring – is from her latest book – Twirls – which can be bought from Nicolas Terry’s Origami shop. All of the models in this book are simple and use the same curling or twirling technique.

Twirls

Paper to use:
For folding these models, you might want to use tant paper or a kind similar. I tried to fold this model with foil paper because I thought that the ‘flexibility’ of the foil paper would allow me to make pretty curls. But boy, was I wrong. The foil paper was ‘slippery’ and it made curling difficult. In fact, curling these units takes a bit of practice, especially if you would like wavy pretty curls like Krystyna’s.

I folded this model using 10 sheets of foil paper, two of a color, single side colored. You have to fold each of the sheets into a ‘Waterbomb’ base and then curl each end towards the left.

Interlocking the units is easy too – all you have to do is curl the edge of one with the other on either side of the unit. This way you will have the same design, curling on both sides of the ring.
