Amazing 3D Paper Design

We live in a three-dimensional world but, in many cases, we operate on a two-dimensional level. It is a factor of life that many of us have grown accustomed to, and we don’t really consider the difference between 3-D and 2-D in most cases. When we see it come to life, however, it really catches our interest and that is especially true if you can take a two-dimensional surface and create a three-dimensional piece.

This 3-D paper design is exactly what I am referring to. It involves something that is drawn on a regular sheet of paper but with a few cuts and folds, it is possible to create a little three-dimensional staircase that climbs to nowhere. It is an optical illusion, of sorts, but it is also a nice project to do when you have some time in the afternoon or if the children are getting restless.

Don’t think that this one is too hard to do, because it is actually quite simple. You only need one piece of paper, a diagram and a razor knife. Before long, you are creating your own little world and it is amazing.
