Origami and Puzzles share a number of similarities, including attracting the interest of some of the same practitioners. Both can appear simple on the surface, but often contain interesting inner workings. They often exploit mathematical relationships so things fit together well. Some puzzles work very well as origami models and the pieces diagrammed here showcase that marriage. All of these works are based on existing puzzle designs, most of which are traditional dissection style challenges. Providing the opportunity to fold your own pieces makes the geometric relationships of the pieces more apparent, but not necessarily easier to solve. Every effort was made to have the pieces for these puzzles begin with the same sized square.
