Origami Holiday Star (Jared Needle) – Part 1

Origami Holiday Star (Jared Needle) – Part 1


Hello! Today we will be folding an
Origami Holiday Star designed by Jared Needle. This is a relatively simple model and
it’s perfect for the upcoming holidays. This model requires one square sheet of
paper. You can use paper with color on both sides or you can use paper with
color on one side and white on the other. We’re going to start by folding in half
vertically. So let’s take this left edge and fold it over to the right edge. Align
the edges and make a crease. And then unfold. And now we’re going to fold in
half horizontally. So let’s take the top edge and fold it down to the bottom edge. Align the edges and then make a crease. And then unfold. Now we’re going to fold in half
diagonally. So let’s take this top left corner and fold it down to the bottom
right corner. Align the corners and the edges and then make a crease. And then
unfold. And now we’re going to do the same thing in the opposite direction. So let’s take this top right corner and
fold it down to the bottom left corner. Align the line the corners and the
edges and then make a crease. And then unfold. Now we’re going to fold the model in
half along one of the diagonal creases that we just created. So you can pick either one. I’ll go with
this one, and just fold the whole model in half
along that diagonal crease. Now we should have a triangle. And you’ll
notice that there’s a vertical crease running up and down here. And we’re just
going to fold the model in half once again along that crease. So let’s take
this corner and fold it over to that corner. Align them and then just make a
crease. You already should have a crease there, so it’ll be pretty easy. And now what we’re going to do is, you’ll
see that there’s two pockets. And we’re just going to pick one of the pockets,
and we can put our hand inside of it. And you can sort of push out in either
direction and just push the top down. So just flatten it out just like that,
and you should create a square. So we’re going to do the same thing on
the back. So now we’re just going to flip the model over, and along this vertical
crease, we’re just going to pull this flap
upwards. And once we do that, we’ll notice this pocket again and we can just put
our fingers inside that pocket and push in either direction, and then just
flatten the top down to create a square. And this is the preliminary base. Now we’re going to align this edge and
this edge with the vertical crease here. So let’s start with this left edge, and
we’re just going to pull it over so that the entire edge aligns with this
vertical crease. So let’s start at the very bottom and make sure that the
bottom tip aligns with the middle crease. And then just work your way up until the
whole edge is aligned with that middle crease. And it should look almost like
half of a kite or an ice cream cone. And when it looks like that, then you just
make your crease. And then do the same thing on this side. So just start at the
very bottom and then work your way up to the top. And you can use the other flap
that we just folded over as your guide for this one. And when it’s done it’ll look something
like this. Now we’re going to flip the model over
and we’re going to do the same thing on this side. So let’s start with this left
edge and we’re going to align it with the middle crease again. So start at the bottom and then work
your way up. And then do the same thing on the right side. Once you’ve done that to all four sides,
then you can unfold them. So unfold the two on that side and then flip it over
and do the same thing. Now we’re going to take this very top
flap and we’re going to pull it up a bit so that the model doesn’t lie flat. And
to make the model lie flat we’re just going to push in these two edges to
align with the middle crease here. So let’s start with this left edge, and we’re just going to push it in. It should
automatically fold along creases that we already created, but it might need a
little help on the top. So once it’s like this, we’re going to do the same thing on the
right side. So just push the side in, and again it should just snap into place but
it just may need a little bit of help on the top. And then we can just fold that
flap back down. Now we’re going to flip the model over, and we’re going to do the
same thing on the back. So let’s take this top layer and we’re
going to pull it up a bit. And again we’re just going to push both sides in to the center crease. So let’s start with the left edge, just push it in, and again
it’ll almost snap into place. And then just do the same thing on the right. Once it’s like this then you can just
fold that top down. Now we’re going to take this very top
flap and we’re going to pull it up as far as it will go. But don’t make a
crease just yet because what we want to do is make a reference point for the
next crease. So let’s just push in along the middle there, so right where this crease intersects
with these edges here. And we’re just making a little pinch in the middle as a
reference for the next crease. So once we’ve done that then you can just fold
that back down. I’ve marked the little reference crease
that we’ve just created, and what we’re going to do with it is we are going to
pull this top tip down to align with that crease there. So let’s just pull it down. And as soon
as it reaches that reference crease and it aligns with this vertical crease here
as well, then we’re going to make a crease. So just like this we’re going to fold the top down, make a
crease, and then unfold once you’ve made a nice sharp crease. Now we’re going to completely unfold the
model. So let’s just take the model and we’re going to pull in each direction
until it lies completely flat again. Once it lies completely flat, you’ll notice a little square in the
middle of the model. With this square, you’re going to create a little sink. So
to create a sink, we have to make sure that each side of the square is a
mountain fold. So let’s just pinch each side. And once
each side mountain-fold, then what we’re going to do is create a water bomb base
using this square here. So to do this we’re just going to push
into the middle of the model, and we’re going to push in on each side at one
time. So we’re doing a couple things at once, but then it will come together
nicely. So just push in everything at once and
then the model should look something like this. Now we’re going to take the very top
layer of the model and we’re going to pull it up as far as it will go. So just
pull it all the way up and then make a crease in the middle. Now we’re going to align these two edges
with this crease here. So let’s start with this left flap and we’re going to
align the top part of this edge here with this crease over here. So we’re
basically just going to pull this up and then we’re going to pull it left a bit. And then when we’re holding it like this, we’re going to start to align this edge
with that crease there. So once it’s aligned, then just make a
crease, and it will look something like that. And now we’re going to do the same thing
on the right side. So just pull it up a bit, and then pull it to the right and
then just make your crease. Now we’re going to fold this left flap
back down. So just pull it down and then we’re going to pull the flap back up
along this crease here, so that it’s straight up and down. So what it’s like this then we’re going
to put our finger inside of that flap. You’ll notice you can do that and then
what we’re going to do is basically just squash fold. So we’re just going to push
the top of the model down, and we’re just going to squash it along
those two creases that we just created and it will look something like this. Now we’re going to fold this right flap
back down. So just fold it down, and then again fold it up along this crease here. So just bring it up so it’s straight up and down. And then put your finger inside
of the flap, and then just squash the model down and it’ll end up looking like
this. Now we’re going to turn the model over.

  6. How can I fucking fold that in the end! It's so hard! I think I made a mistake? Or your just so good that I can't even get it

  7. Some of us are actually beginners at oragami you should actually try to be a good teacher and tell us how it has to be instead of just expecting thy we know what water bomb bases are and what mountain folds are honestly I think you suck and need to be more helpful and take it slower rather than just assuming that we know how to do some of these things I apologize if I am being kind of mean or harsh but honestly you need to work on your helping skills

  8. пол часа на ету херню та ана хорошо на 8минут  19 секунд блін ето хуйня
