…Folding paper can be fun?

Here’s a few projects for you paper folders:

Paper Train Whistle

The first is a working train whistle made entirely out of household materials (printer, paper, thicker paper, white glue, scissors, and a razor edge).

To make the whistle, just print the paper parts, fold, cut, glue, and after 3 hours (drying time) you’ll have your very own playable paper train whistle.

NetFlix Origami

The second is an entire site dedicated to origami that you can make from the tear-off flaps that come on NetFlix wrappers.

Though traditional origami usually requires squares of paper, each of these designs has been adapted so that you can use the rectangular NetFlix flap without alteration.

Using the sturdy and colorful flaps, you can make your very own swan, frog, box, shirt, heart, tray, crab, sack, cube, envelope, bullet plane, glider, and dive-bomber.

Just watch out for the paper cuts.

…Opening doors is hard?

Open Doors

Open Doors is a flash game that looks a lot easier than it is.

To play, you simply move your square to the X through a series of doors.

The challenge is that doors close behind you, and there’s only one correct path to the other side.

…The Olla Podrida Plexus Puzzle is a challenge?

Olla Podrida Plexus Puzzle

The Olla Podrida Plexus Puzzle is a unique jigsaw puzzle that uses cartoon shapes that can be turned and combined to form a cohesive square.

Though there are only about 20 shapes, it’ll still probably take some time to figure out how everything fits together.

…The Simpsons don’t know how to package?

The Simpsons Movie Soundtrack Disc

Whoever designs the packaging for The Simpsons disks must not know anything about the typical shelf, because they seem to prefer things that are more round than square.

The soundtrack for The Simpsons Movie is no different, and it comes in its own donut.

Looks tasty. (And unstackable!)
