page is for those who want the instruction to fold a traditional origami menko.
This traditional origami menko is a modular origami model which requires two square papers. You need to make two modules, i.e., one from each paper. The interesting technique you will learn here is that the combining of two modules is accomplished through inserting a triangular flap into a pocket.
Before working on this model, you need to know what valley-fold and mountain-fold are. If you know these two folding techniques, then you will have no problem in making origami menko.
If you are ready, then let's get started.

You may use any kind of paper to fold the
origami menko. It is a little easier if the front and the back side of the paper are
slightly different whether it be in texture or color.
Make sure the paper
that you use is a square (all sides are equal and all the angles
equal 90 degrees). The paper I am using here is typical two 15cm x 15cm origami paper with different color.
