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

This is so cool. I might try this one day if I have enough time and paper.😊

Thanks for a great tutorial Evan!

How come you've been not posting on regular (not daily but every once in a while

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?

More videos, please !! 😀

Very good thank you !

i folded this model and you should check it out by the way your channel is awesome!!!

Hi

I folded this! 😀 Keep up the excellent work! 😀

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?

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?

Very nice

Has Paolo's book been reprinted? I do not see it on the OrigamiUSA website (The Source) or anywhere else…

I Made This Demo On My Channel Tonight

That was easy to make

Very nice

video is interesting to watch a friend

lol I saw 14 squares and was like nope

mmm…. good

I just started ! 😀

Thank you 🙂

Thank you so much nice video

Awesome model

Good job evan!

I didnt make it tell ur mother i lover her

Nice thing! And quite easy to do…

I have a Question whats your favorite animal? Mine is a dog

A good instruction and, in my opinion, it is quite easily to assemble.

Cool

Would You Rather Get $1,000,000,000,000,000 Or Keep Doing Origami? Like If You Think Keep Doing Origami.

Whats the name of the paper that you used??

wow it takes realy long but i did it

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.

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

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 !

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 !

Your paper appears a lot larger than 3 inches all around ! Pls respond ! Why !

q medida es el papel?

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.👌

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

Thankyou

this was sooo cool and so easy ty <3

Sorry I'm French, what's the dimensions?

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!

Great video. Giving instructions while speaking best way to show people. Unlike other videos no talking at all.
