Minecraft Creeper Origami

Minecraft Creeper Origami


Hello dear friends of the folded sheet. Today we’ll fold a creeper from the game Minecraft. I made the design myself and it’s a modular model, so you’ll need two sheets I recommend origami paper, but any paper will do as long as it is a square. The model is low intermediate, but don’t worry you can pause the video any time. We begin by shaping the part for the head and the body and we fold the sheet in half first and then we fold it into quarters. and then into half and quarters in the other side to shape a 4×4 square grid. All the creases need to be vally-creases vally-folds from the white side and mountain folds from the green side and now I reversed the fold to fold edge to edge that is more precise and will lead to a, more precise grid. with in the end means a prettier model. So you might want to do it that way too make sure all creases are in the same direction and now we divide it in four in the other direction first in half then into quarters I tried to make the model as simple as possible and still a 3D model so please bare with me, that it is a modular model and that you need to draw onto the paper that all could be done with reversing the color of the sheet but that would mean a more complicated model a way more complicated model to be honest with you now we’ve done our grid it’s time to grab a pen and draw the creeper face I’m not good at drawing, but I think it’s so simple anyone can do it but do it right now, so If you fail, you just need to fold another grid and not the whole model also it’s easier to draw on it now , while it’s still flat square eyes the mouth is a rectangle with two smaller rectangles on the lef and the right you can look at the diagram on the right to see what the face needs to look like ok, I think that works now we need to let it dry blow it a little, or wave at it now we make a vally-fold in the top left corner and then another one in the third grid of the first row,but in the other direction as indicated in the diagram, it wil help a lot and the last of the three top creases that are needed for the head of the creeper is a mountain-crease – a mountain fold it is in the other direction, so it’s a mountain with the white inside and the green outside that is important to later on but it all together but before we put it together make sure that those creases are correct the last one a mountain-crease the first two valley-creases – valley-folds first, to shape the body we need those Y-shapes you fold the squares, two bottom lines of the squares in half you can see it well in the diagram use the corners as reference-points on the grid for the diangonal creaes you can fold point to point the other wing of the Y you can fold point to point again fold through the wings of the Y’s reverse the folds collapse it like this you have two flaps here from the valley-folds and another one here from the mountain-folds the whole thing looks like a cube body put the last flap in this top pocket here like this once more slowly this is what the model looks like when it’s done you have three flaps in total those two go inside the model it now should look like this to close the head, without glue or something else push the last flap inside here it really closes nicely like a cupboard box for the body of the creeper just flatten the bottom make sure you don’t crush the cube, the head while flattening I think it’s easier to do with smaller paper, I recommend 10cm x 10cm paper not as big as I used for the feet, which are really simple the hardest part is done now if you’ve done the head you’ll be able to do the whole model fold in half and unfold and fold to the middle now I do the less precise method, because it’s not that important you don’t need to make a cube there if you’re a little of with your folds it doesn’t matter fold it inside again, form another cupboard fold the shape in half as it is, or you could open it up again before folding but that’s not nessecary pinch-mark and another pinch-mark at the quarters so you have three pinch-marks in total now from close up another two pinch-marks or creases at 1/8 of the whole length another one here just fold edge to crease here now we’ll do a double squash fold that sounds more scary than it is what we’ll actually do is just fold in an 45° Angle and make the sides stand up like a cupboard like a 3D cupboard reverse those two creases and push do the same on the other side just push everything into place the creases are already there, you just need to re-arange them and enforce them a little fold the feet up and the whole thing in half so it looks like the feet of the creeper from minecraft put then in the angle you like those are the feet now we take the first module the feet go in there in the closed pocket it actually will not fit, because paper does not have width, thickness in theory it fits in reality it’s a little too wide so you have to wrap it around a little but the paper is flexible enough that is your creeper, you’re done! good job! if you have done that, you’re really good at this and you can be proud of your creeper here I made a smaller one which is much cuter and nicer to look at both of them can stand if you arrange the feet at the right angle thanks a lot for watching and for sticking with me for all this time if you want to the more: just click one of the annotations for example: this world record plane or the flapping bird It would be really awesome if you would subscribe so you get updated when I upload something new which will be the case soon or visit tavinsorigami.com and you can follow me on facebook and google+ and share it with your friends if you liked it see you then. bye,bye!
