Thanks! It's also a lot of fun to play with. I've been sitting here squishing and unsquishing it since I finished it.

That is TRULY one of the coolest things I've seen in a while. Did you do that from scratch or was it from a template type thing? *___*

From scratch. I found the directions on the internet.

I converted my letter-size paper to A4 size first because plain paper origami in general calls for a sliver rectangle (1:sqrt(2), which A4 paper is but US letter isn't), but for this design you could probably use plain letter paper and be okay. Basically it's a ton of prep work, but once you've got all the folds in it basically assembles itself. I cheated and used tape on the ends, though.

Silver rectangle. As in Silver Ratio. Sort of like Golden Ratio, only different. ^_^
