Origami 3D Ring (Paolo Bascetta)


Hey guys, this is Evan from EZ Origami. And today I’ll be teaching you how to fold an Origami 3D Ring designed by Paolo Bascetta. This is a simple modular model and it’s
perfect for any special occasion. Before I get started, it’s important to
mention that this model is a 3D variation of one of Mette Pederson’s
origami rings. Both artists have some really fascinating work, so please be
sure to check it out by clicking on the links in the description below. This
model requires 14 square sheets of paper. Each unit is folded from one square, and
I recommend using 3″ or larger squares to fold the units. Using 3″ squares will result in a model about 3″ wide. I’m going to be using larger paper with
color on one side and white on the other, but you can use paper with color on both
sides. Either way it will not affect the appearance of the completed model. And
once you’ve prepared your paper, then we’re going to start with our first
square with the colored side up. And we’re going to start by folding in half
vertically. So take this right edge and fold it over to the left edge. Align the corners and the edges, then make your crease, and then unfold. And now we’re going to rotate the paper so that
the crease we just made is now held horizontally. And then we’re going to do
the same thing in the opposite direction So once again take this right edge and
fold it over to the left edge. Align the corners and the edges, then make your crease, and then unfold. And now we’re going to turn the paper over. And
once it’s turned over, then we’re going to fold up this bottom edge and align it
with this existing horizontal crease. So we’re just going to pull up the bottom
edge like this, and once it’s completely aligned with that horizontal crease, then
we’re not going to crease all the way. We just want to make a small reference
crease on the right side of the model here. So just crease about a quarter of
the way in from the right, and once you’ve made that small crease, then you
can unfold. And now we’re going to rotate the paper so that the reference crease
we just made is now held on the top left corner of the model. And now we’re going
to fold up this bottom edge and align it with that small reference crease. So
we’re just going to pull up the bottom edge like this, and once the colored edge
and the reference crease are aligned, then you want to make sure that the
vertical creases in the center of the model are aligned as well. And once your
model looks something like this, then you can crease all the way across. And then you can unfold. And now we’re going to fold up this
bottom edge and align it with this top horizontal crease. So we’re just going to
pull up the bottom edge like this, and once the colored edge and that crease are
aligned, then you can make your crease all the way across. And once your model looks like this, then
you can unfold. And now we’re going to fold down these top two corners and
align them with the central crease intersection here. So we’re going to
start with this top right corner, and we’re simply going to pull the corner
down until it aligns with this point here where those two creases intersect. And once everything is aligned, then you can make your crease. And then we’re
going to do the same thing on the left. So once again, take this top left corner,
and we’re going to pull it down and align it with that central crease
intersection just like we did on the other side. And once everything is
aligned then you can make your crease. And then your model should look like
this. And now we’re going to fold up this
bottom edge along this existing horizontal crease here. So we’re simply
going to pull up the bottom edge, just like this, and once you have something
like this, then we’re going to turn the model over. And now we’re going to fold
in these two white triangles along these diagonal color edges here. So we’re going
to start with this triangle on the right, and what we want to do is simply pull it
over to the left as far as it will go, just like this. And you’ll see that it
will align with this colored edge here. Then you can make your crease, and once you have that, then we’re going to do the same thing on the left. So once again you simply want to pull
this white triangle over to the right as far as it goes, just like this. Again, it
should align with this colored edge. And then you can make your crease. And once
you’ve done that on both sides, your model should look like this. And now we’re going to fold up this
bottom edge along this existing horizontal crease here. So we’re simply
going to pull up this bottom edge, just like this, and then we want to reinforce
the creases through all layers by simply creasing along this bottom edge. And
once your model looks like this, then we’re going to turn the paper over. And
now we’re going to fold over this top right corner and align it with this
point here where these two edges intersect. So we’re going to start by lifting up
the right side of the model, and we’re simply going to pull it over to the left, just
like this, until this right corner aligns with this point here where those two edges
intersect. And once everything is aligned, then you can make your crease. Crease
sharply because you’ll be creasing through a lot of layers. And once your
model looks like this, then you can unfold. And now we’re going
to do the same thing on the left. So we’re going to fold over this top
left corner and align it with this point here where these two edges intersect. So we’re going to start by pulling over
the left side of the model, just like this. And you want to pull it over until
that corner and the edge intersection are aligned, just like this. And then you
can crease through all layers just like we did before. Again crease sharply, and once you have
this then you can unfold. Now we’re going to make the model 3d by
folding in along these two vertical creases that we just made. So we’re going to start with this crease on
the right, and what we want to do is simply pull the right side of the model
over to the left, just like this, along that existing crease. You can just hold the paper like this at
a 90 degree angle, and then we’re going to do the same thing on the left. So once again, pull the left side of the
model over to the right along that existing vertical crease. Again, you can
hold it at a 90 degree angle. And then if you put the model on its side, it should
look like this. And this is one completed unit. Now you must fold 13 more. Once you’ve folded all 14 units, then we’re
going to need 2 to start the assembly. Then look at one and you’ll notice that
it has a rectangular flap just like this on both sides, and it also has a small
pocket underneath this colored triangle here on both sides. So once again we’re
going to take our first two units, and we’re going to start by inserting the
second unit’s rectangular flap underneath the first units triangular pocket. So we’re going to do that by lifting up
both of the units. And again you simply want to slide that rectangular flap
underneath the triangular pocket, just like this. And as you’re doing this, you can bring
both of the units together, just like this, as far as they’ll go. And once you have something like that,
then we’re going to turn the model over, and we’re going to do the same exact
thing. So once again, you’ll see that the second
unit’s rectangular flap is now held on top so we simply want to slide that
underneath the first unit’s triangular pocket just like we did on the other
side. And once again you can simply slide both of the units together as far as
they’ll go until you have something like this. Then we’re going to turn the model
back over, and once you’ve done that on both sides then you’ve connected two
units. And now we’re going to add the third unit the same way. So we’re going to
do that by inserting the third unit’s rectangular flap underneath of the
second unit’s triangular pocket just like we did before. So once again we’re going to lift up all
three units, and then we’re going to slide the third unit’s flap underneath
the second unit’s pocket just like we did before. So you simply want to slide all three
units together, just like that. And once you have this, then we’re going
to turn the model over and do the same exact thing. So again you’ll see that the third unit’s
rectangular flap is now held on top. So what we want to do is slide that flap
underneath the second unit’s triangular pocket, just like we did before. So just
slide the third unit’s flap underneath the second unit’s pocket, just like this. And again you can push all three units
together. And once you have something like this you can turn the model back
over and now you’ve connected three units. And now we’re going to connect the
remaining 11 units the same way. And as you assemble the last three units,
start to see that the first and last units will overlap. So as you continue,
just make sure that the first unit’s flaps are always held on top. This will make it much easier to connect
the rest of the units. And to finish off the assembly, we’re simply going to
insert the first unit’s flaps inside of the last unit’s pockets just like we’ve
been doing. So we’re going to do that on both sides, just like this. And once you
have this, then we’re going to turn the model over, and then your 3D Ring is
complete! I hope you’ve enjoyed this video

  1. I find your style of videos really simple to follow! I've wanted to get into origami tessellation, do you think you could do a tutorial on some tessellations?

  2. Hi!
    I was wondering… If I place a branding logo, you get to see how many people subscribed to my channel. With your video peaople can subscribe directly. How did you manage that?

  3. Hey Evan! I really want to fold some of your models, for example the Logarithmic Spiral. But, i can't find the instructions or diagram anywhere! Where do i find the diagram? Or isn't there a diagram for it?

  4. You are by far and away the best instructor for origami. I can usually do the folds but sometimes have difficulty joining the units and you explain that process very well. I really enjoy watching your videos. Thank you.

  5. Evan ! Hello there , just tuned in , you mentioned the measurements , with 14 squares is that 3 inches all around ? ? .Pls respond ! Thnx .

  6. Evan ! Hi , I'm rather new to this can you tell where your idea generated from ? Also I have on hand different colored paper , u stated that regular colored paper is ok to use ! I would have to measure the squares by hand again 3 inches all around ? I think that this project is so cool ! Get back with me OK ! Thanks buddy !

  7. OK ! Evan ! I have measured with a regular ruler , when I measured 3 inches all around the square appeared somewhat small ! So what I did to make the square larger I started at the very beginning of the ruler before reaching the first inch mark !Now your paper appears larger than 3 inches in your tutorial. Pls respond !

  8. Thank you Evan for one of your fun and exciting videos, this design really got me going and your instructions are very clear. I shall post my own video of my ring I made.๐Ÿ‘Œ

  9. I have subscribe you.. visit my channel https://www.youtube.com/user/deyonxeoght and subscribe me back
    Thankyou

  10. Hello, thank you for the video. Just a suggestion: being the sheet a square, the second fold is actually not necessary and it could be avoided so that at the end you will not have a vertical fold in the middle of the side of each module, making the origami esthetically nicer. Have fun!
