Origami Enneagram (Dáša Ševerová)


Hello! Today we will be folding an
Origami Enneagram designed by Dasa Severova. This is a great modular model and the units are quite simple to fold. This model requires 3 square sheets of
paper. Each unit is folded from an equilateral triangle, so before making
the units, I’ll teach you how to fold each square so they can easily be cut
into the correct shape. We’re going to start by making the
equilateral triangles. So once you’ve prepared your paper, then you want to
take your first square, and if you’re using paper with color on one side and
white on the other, than start with the white 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. Now we’re going to make a crease by
using this existing vertical crease as a reference. And we’re going to do that by
first lifting up this bottom right corner, and we’re simply going to align
it with that existing crease. But now we want to make sure that our new crease
extends from this bottom left corner here, so you want to make sure that the
colored edge reaches the corner like this. Then again you want to make sure
that this corner aligns with the vertical crease, and then you can make your crease. And once your model looks like this then you can unfold. Now we’re going to do the same thing on
the left. So we’re going to start by pulling up
this bottom left corner, and again you want to make sure it aligns with the
existing vertical crease. And once it’s aligned, then you want to make sure that
this colored edge comes to a point in the bottom right corner just like we did
before. So once you have that, then you’ll start
to notice that the existing creases will also start to align, and then you can
make your crease. And once your model looks like this, then you can unfold. Now we’re going to rotate the model just so that the two creases
we just made are now held at the top half of the paper. And now we’re going to
align this right edge with this crease that we made before. And we’re going to do that by first pulling over the right edge, and starting in the top right
corner and working your way over to the left, you want to align the edge with the
crease. And once the entire edge is aligned, then you can make your crease,
and then you can unfold. Now we’re going to do the same thing on
the left. So we’re going to align the left edge
with this crease that we made before. So we’re going to do that by first pulling
over the left edge, and starting in the top left corner and working your way
over to the right, you want to align the edge with the crease. And once the entire edge is aligned, then you can make your crease, and then you
can unfold. Once your model looks like this, you’ll notice that the creases we
just made formed an equilateral triangle in the middle of the square. So you simply want to cut the paper
along these two creases that I’ve marked here just to create your equilateral
triangle. And once you have this you’ll need to repeat the same process on the
other two squares that you have prepared. And once you’ve done this to all three
squares, then we can start folding our first unit. So we’re going to start with our first
triangle, and again if you’re using paper with color on one side and white on the
other, then start with the white side up. And we’re going to start by folding up
this bottom corner and aligning it with this top edge here. So we’re going to do
that by first lifting up the bottom corner. And as you’re doing this, you want
to make sure that the vertical creases on both layers align. Then you simply
want to slide the corner up to the top edge, just like this. And once the edge and
the corner are aligned, then you can make your crease. And once your model looks
like this, then you can unfold. And now we’re going to rotate the paper, and
we’re going to do the same exact thing on this bottom corner here. And again
we’re simply going to pull up the bottom corner like this, and we’re going to
align it with the top edge just like we did before. And again you want to make sure that the
vertical creases on both layers align, and then you can make your crease. And
once you have this, then you can unfold. And now we’re going to rotate the paper,
and we’re going to do the same thing on this bottom corner here. So once again we’re simply going to pull
up this bottom corner here and we’re going to align it with the top edge, just
like we did before. And again you want to make sure that the
vertical creases on both layers align. And then you can make your crease, and
then you can unfold. Now we’re going to turn the model over. And once it’s turned over, we’re
going to make three new creases by using the creases that we just made as
references. So we’re going to start with this bottom
horizontal crease here. And what we want to do is simply pinch it from the top
just to make it a mountain fold, and then we’re going to fold this edge into the
center where these three creases intersect. So you’re simply going to pull the edge
up, just like this, align it with that crease intersection, and then we’re not
going to crease all the way. We just want to make a small crease in the middle of
the model, just like this, and then you can unfold. And once you have this, then
we’re simply going to rotate the paper and do the same exact thing on this
horizontal crease here. So again we’re simply going to pinch the
crease from the top just to make it a mountain fold. And then we’re going to fold
this edge into the center of the model where those three creases intersect. And once you have that, then you can make a small crease in the center of the
model, just like this, and then you can unfold, and your model should look like
this. Then you want to rotate the paper one last time and repeat the same
process on this horizontal crease here. So again we’re just going to pinch it
from the top, just like this, just to make it a mountain fold. And then we’re going to
fold this edge into the center of the model where those three creases
intersect. Again, we just want to make a small reference crease in the middle of
the model, and then you can unfold. And once your model looks like this, then you
can turn the paper over. Now we’re going to fold in all three corners. And we’re going to start
with this bottom corner here, and what we want to do is simply fold it up and
align it with this small horizontal reference crease that we just made. So we’re going to do that by first
lifting up this bottom corner, and as soon as it aligns with that reference
crease, then you want to make sure that the vertical creases on both layers
align, and then you can make your crease. And once your model looks like this, then
you want to rotate the paper and do the same exact thing on this bottom corner
here. So we’re just going to pull the bottom corner up and align it with this
small horizontal reference crease that we just made. So just pull it up like we did before. Again, make sure that the vertical creases on both layers are aligned, and
then you can make your crease. And once your model looks like this, then you
simply want to rotate the paper one last time and do the same thing on this
bottom corner here. So we’re simply going to fold it up and align it with this
small horizontal reference crease, just like we did before. So once you’ve aligned that corner with
the reference crease, then you want to make sure that the vertical creases on
both layers align. Then you can make your crease, and your model should look like
this. And once you have this, then you want to
turn the model over. Now we’re going to rotate the paper. And what we’re going to do is make
a crease that extends between the ends of these two creases here. And we’re
going to do that by folding up this bottom edge. So we’re just going to pull
it up like this, and as soon as the left and right sides align with the two
creases that I mentioned before, then you can make your crease. Also, in order to
make sure you’ve done this correctly, you want to make sure that this white edge
aligns with these two small crease intersections in the middle of the model. So once your model looks like this, then
you simply want to rotate the paper and do the same exact thing on this bottom
edge here. But this time it’s a little bit simpler because you can fold this
bottom left corner here up to align with the top of this color triangle here. So what we’re going to do is simply pull
up this bottom edge as far as it goes. You’ll see that both corners will align,
and then you simply want to crease all the way across just like you did before. And once your model looks like this, then you can rotate the paper, and we’re going
to do the same thing one last time on this bottom edge here. And this time it
should be even easier because we’re folding up this bottom edge along these
two colored edges here. So simply pull up the bottom edge like
this as far as it goes, and then you can make your crease. Now in order to make everything
symmetrical, we’re going to lift up this white layer on the right side of the
model just so that we can tuck this bottom layer underneath. And we’re going
to do that by first partially unfolding this bottom layer here. Then you want to
lift up the white layer on the right side of the model, tuck this bottom white
layer back underneath, then you can put the right layer back down. And now that
the model is symmetrical, you can turn the entire model around, and
this is one completed unit. Now you must fold two more. Once you’ve completed all three units,
you’re going to need two to start the assembly. Then lie the first unit down
flat, and what you want to do is take the second unit, and you’re going to take
this white edge here and slide it underneath the colored diamond on the
top of the first unit. So you’re going to do that by simply sliding the second unit
down on top of the first unit, just like this. And then your model should look
something like this. But now you’ll notice that there’s these
two trap diamonds underneath the second unit. So what we’re going to do is just pick
up the entire model and release those layers from underneath just so that
they’re now on top of the second unit, just like this. And once you have this,
then you want to rotate the second unit clockwise, just so that the diamonds from
the first and second units are now aligned. And once you have this, then you
can rotate the entire model, and now you’ve connected two units. And now we’re
going to add the third unit the same way. And we’re going to do that by first
sliding this white edge on the third unit underneath these two diamonds on
the top of the model here. So we’re going to do that just like we did before, by simply sliding the third unit down on
top of the other two units, just like this. And again you’ll notice that
there are these four diamonds trapped underneath the third unit. So what we’re going to do is simply pick
up the model and release those layers from underneath, just like we did before. So just work your way around the model releasing those diamonds from underneath. And once you have this, then you’re Enneagram is complete. I hope you’ve enjoyed this video

  1. Thank You so much for the videos . These origami videos may look simple but I know it takes a lot of effort to make them .

  2. Holy cow watch the video from 2009 origami heart and listen to his voice now and HOW MUCH it changed O_O

  3. Can you show us how to make an origami soccer ball? I saw a geometric figure in the 2012 convention, and was hoping you'd know how to make it into a soccer ball. I just thought it looks really cool!

  4. BORING! That's new for me cause i normally like origami! Nice design and all but u took for ever to explain come on i mean really almost 10 minutes u hv to pick up the pace guys. My brother almost fell asleep!!! There's good and bad criticism and this is in between but as i said nice design!!!
