Have you looked at Tomoko Fuse's book _Unit Origami_? It describes
ways of making geometric figures from several sheets of origami paper
folded similarly. Unfortunately, these figures often fall apart when
I try to make them.

_Patty Paper Geometry_ by Michael Serra is a book describing geometry
projects for students your age. The idea there is to fold pieces of
waxed paper and observe the geometric figures formed by the creases.
Can you construct a square by just folding paper and marking points on

Similar ideas are presented in the book _Geometric Exercises in Paper
Folding_, by T.S. Row. The instructions in this book seemed a little
difficult to follow, though.

Good luck!
