This design consists of a repetitive series of polyhedral surface Waterbomb pattern, one of the most recognizable folds in origami that is based on the use of tessellations.
The canvas, however, does not begin with a square, starting with a ratio of 2:1. For material to use, all depends on the role they want and their preferences. But keep in mind that a heavy paper Might offer too much rigidity and a very thin paper Might not resist the folding process, I recommend, bond paper of 80 grams. These bases Waterbomb allow repeat to close a cylindrical shape is maintained by applying pressure to the sides. In its natural state the folds form a sphere. If pressure is applied on the top and bottom, the structure collapses on itself, creating a donut-shaped
As personal advice based on my limited experience I recommend that you try to keep this kind of accordion, alternating the folds in each stage of the folding process.
