In an earlier post, I showed two origami models I made from old prints. Here’s another related model, though more complex than the previous ones. I love this puzzle purse design which you can open and close with a twist. I used part of an old woodcut to fold the model. When closed, it measures 3 inches square. I’ll be sending it to a friend as mail art.
