Someone was asking around for a pattern for this pencil holder, from a now-defunct website (http://kamixkaze.xxxxxxxx.jp).  Well, I couldn't find the template, but I figured if I worked at it a while I could make my own.  



Compare it to the original



My stairs didn't come out EXACTLY the same, but they're darn close.

Get the template here:

The whole thing folds up flat into a quarter circle.  Nifty design by IKO.  Wish she would return to the web.

P.S. Don't know what the heck Origamic Architecture is?  Here's a pretty good introduction:

whoa.  This is fantastic.  I wish paper didn't burst into flames whenever I get near.  This is just so fun to look at.

Great job!
