Origami Die instructions and tutorial

It takes only a few minutes to make an origami die (or origami dice as you can quickly and easily make more than one!) with this printable die template. So the next time you need some dice to play some game, Yahtzee, Monopoly, Clue or your favorite role playing game, just print and fold them! This paper die is a fun papercraft for kids and adults alike.

This paper die is folded using my new origami cube design, without glue or tape. I made a printable template so that you can easily get the dots on the right faces. Just select the color you like, print the template on A4 or letter size paper, and fold following my video instructions.

The template is available in different colors: the classic white die with black dots, and colorful red, green or blue dice with white dots.

I think these origami dice look pretty cool, I hope you will like them! If you make some paper dice, please send me some photos at stephane@origami.plus so that I can add them on the Origami Cubes website and show them in a future video on the Origami Plus YouTube channel!

What's the singular of dice and the plural of dice?

The singular is die, and the plural is dice. Sometimes dice is also used as a singular, but dices is never used as plural!

Does the paper die give truly random results?

I don't know, but as it is not entirely symmetrical, I suspect there might be some numbers that come up more often than others. That could be a good exercize to do in a maths class: throw the die a large number of times, and plot the distribution of results! (and then please tell me the results!)

Origami Cubes

The Origami Cubes were created in 2022 by Stéphane Gigandet. This new origami cube model has several benefits over other origami cubes models:
  • It takes only 2 minute to fold a cube.
  • Folding an origami cube is very easy, with only simple folds.
  • You can use standard copy paper or origami paper.
  • A 15x15cm square of paper yields 4 2cm origami cubes.
  • The paper cubes can be joined together, without tape or glue.

Make colorful origami cubes and join them like paper Lego bricks to make cool Minecraft like creations! No glue, no tape, just paper!

Making an origami cube is very easy and quick (2 minutes per cube), and you can use standard copy paper or origami paper. You can then join the origami cubes to make fun creations. Video demo and tutorial:
