How to Make a Boat | Origami


This is a video for creating an origami boat. The first step for the origami boat is we’re
going to take a sheet of paper and we’re going to start with the white side up, we’re going
to make a book fold. So go ahead and start. We’re going to take this bottom edge and fold
it all the way up to the top edge. Again, try to make sure that everything lines
up nice and perfect so there’s no extra white paper showing. Get it nice and precise right up there and
then make a nice crease fold on that. Now open it back up. What we’re going to do now is we’re going
to fold both of the outside edges into the middle. This is called a cabinet fold where these
two outside edges are going to come right into the middle. Right like this. Crease that down. The same thing on the other side. They should butt right up against each other. Try not to have them overlap. They should be nice and happy. And you see how they open up like cabinet
doors. That’s why it’s called that. Next we’re going to fold down all four corners. There’s four corners on here and we’re going
to fold each of them down into the middle. Think of this edge right here lining up against
the center. Fold that one down. And this one as well. And then also these two at the bottom. Again, we will try and make sure that none
of them overlap, we want to have them meet up right against each other, like that. Next we’re going to do two kite folds. We’re going to fold these two edges of the
triangle down. We’re going to keep folding them until they
go right up into that center line again. We do that on the left. And we do that on the right. Like that. We’re also going to do that on the bottom
two sides, the bottom left and the bottom right. But what happens here when we do these is
that it’s going to overlap a little bit with this other spot. That’s Okay, that’s all right. We’ll let that happen. So go ahead and fold that next one over as
well. You see how they do overlap a little bit there. Next we’re going to take these two points,
these outside points and we’re going to fold them into the middle. So it’ll come down like that. The second one will come over and meet the
other one right at the same spot. This is the base to start off with for the
boat. Next we’re going to fold the whole thing in
half backwards. So go ahead and break it in half and fold
it down the halfway line. In that direction, just like this. There’s a couple of different flaps in the
middle. What we want to do is open it up to one of
the sides. You can either have it, where there’s three
flaps, you can have the center one on the left or the right. It doesn’t really matter. So go ahead and open it up so that where you
can see all either color or no color. In this case it’s white. All like that. What we’re going to do is we’re going to keep
that flap flattened on the side and we’re going to pop this whole thing inside out. What I like to do, if you look at it from
the bottom, go ahead and take your thumb, or some other finger, and push on this point. You see how it’s sort of got a little bit
of a bump right there? Go ahead and push on that until it pop inside
out. Just like that. Do that on the top and the bottom. And then these pop inside out. Now when you collapse the boat again, this
time it’s white with the color on the inside. And then for the last step, what we’re going
to do, if you look in the center of the boat there’s a couple different flaps of paper. There’s these two little triangles, what you
want to do is with the left hand side go ahead and grab one sheet of paper and the triangle,
leaving the big white flap behind. We’re going to grab those two and then on
the other hand we’re going to pinch these two flaps right here. I’m going to pull them apart like this and
then push right here on this spot, this spot is pointed out and just like when we flipped
it inside out the other way, we’re going to flip that inside out on that side and then
also on this side. That creates the origami boat. Here’s the finished origami boat.
