How to Make a Samurai Helmet | Origami


These are the instructions for an Origami
Samurai Helmet. For the Origami Samurai Helmet, we start with
a regular sheet of paper and with the white side up. So, with the white side up, we’re going to
take the bottom corner, I’m going to fold it all the way up to the top corner. This is a diagonal fold. So, make sure that there’s no white showing. Try and get the entire thing lined up so that
it’s in the right spot. And then, lock it in by sliding, with your
other hand down, using your thumb to hold the place and then going out to the corner
in either direction, just like that. Gives it a nice good diagonal crease. Next, we’re going to take both of these corners
and fold them up to the top point. So, go ahead and get it where it lines up
exactly right on it. Fold that over and the same thing here. What you don’t want to do is have these overlap
at all. We want to have them where they’re right up
against each other, but they don’t overlap at all. We’re going to fold the top point. We’re going to fold that down. And, that’s going to go right to here, right
to the bottom point now, there and also right there. Now, I’m going to rotate the entire model
around. This is going to be the top of the samurai
helmet, right here on the top. So, these two are going to be the horns. I’m going to take this point right here. I’m going to rotate it and point it out to
the side, just like that, on one side and also on the other side, both of those in opposite
directions. And that gives the horns. Next, we’re going to take, there’s two sheets
of paper here at the bottom. I’m going to take just the top sheet, and
I’m going to fold it up to about the middle of the triangle, so right about there. That’s good. And then, go ahead and crease it. Next, we’re going to take this bottom edge
we just created, that crease we just made, and I’m going to roll it up. I’m going to roll it all the way up, as high
as it goes, so I have a little brim to the hat, a little white brim at the bottom and
a little triangle right there. Give that a good crease. And next, you’re going to have to pick up
the sheet a little bit. This is, sort of, a 3D step. I’m going to take the next sheet, the back
sheet, and I’m going to push it all the way inside. If you look at it from the top, there’s this
pocket right here. There’s a pocket right there. I’m going to take this sheet, and I’m going
to feed it all the way inside the model. So, I’m going to push it all the way up. Just take your fingers and, sort of, roll
it up. Roll it up as far as it will go so it goes
all the way up into the top. You can open it up again, and that is the
Origami Samurai Helmet. Another fun thing about the samurai helmet,
if you push on these two edges until they collapse, it turns into a goldfish.
