Origami Heaven

A paperfolding paradise

The website of writer and paperfolding designer David Mitchell


Cahier de Adele Tissot, 1876
This exercise book, which is in the collection of Musée cantonal d’archéologie et d’histoire (MCAH), CH - Lausanne, contains three pages of paperfolds. It can be viewed online here. My thanks to Edwin Corrie for drawing this to my attention.

Two of the pages are of particular interest:


The top designs on this page (Sahettes 1 and 2) are two slightly different versions of the Wall Pocket. It is interesting to note the eyelets that, presumably, allow them to be hung from nails hammered into a wall.

The lower design is a plume intended to be added to the Newspaper Hat (see below)


The top design (Le Sachet) looks like a Basic Rectangular Letterfold.

The lower design is a Newspaper Hat.


These two designs are the standard Paper Boat (top) and a variant (below) with a slightly larger sail.
