Nobuko's Puff Ring / December Decoration

In the origami world, if 2 origami artists invent the same design independently, they both equally share the rights to that design. One case of this is the Nobuko's Puff Ring for Nobuko Okabe, or the December Decoration, for Jose Meeusen.

You can find the diagrams in either Creased Magazine Issue 12, or Easy Origami to Enliven Your Life (Kurashi o Irodoru Raku Raku no Origami) Book by Tomoko Fuse.

When making thie units of this model, I advise you NOT to use small paper; anything smaller than a 4 inch x 4 inch is a no no. Why? Because it'll be hard to assemble and your model will look very crappy. Plus, the locks will be weak.

The units are easy to make, though, The units are just modified preliminary bases.The assembly is also a bit easy, though if you do not lock it meticulously, it will fall apart.

Plus, you get to "puff" it up just by pressing the model a bit.
