  1. Some tips to make your experience watching my videos much better. You can change the speed and control the player using the shortcuts below:
    "<" key – decrease play speed (you can also click the settings icon on the bottom right to change the speed)
    ">" key – increase play speed
    "j" key – Move backward 10 sec (very useful when you need to repeat a step)
    "k" key – Pause/play video
    "l" key – Move forward 10 sec

  2. Finally gets right size paper boooom 😀 1.31 in lost 🙈 your fingers on fire bro Bet your lass calls you the finger God 🤣 next time you up load will you put numbers on the lines it might help 🤷‍♂️ please lmao then I too can be the finger God. All hale the finger gods🤴

  3. 6:15 im doing it correctly, but the diagonal folds keep on getting smaller and smaller and its really frustrating me. anybody else having that problem?

  4. This way is amazing, but making the pattern on this one is surprisingly hard, even if I've made it before. So,I recommend that you try to make it easier because I really want to make this one.

  5. ค.ว.ย. ยากสัสๆไอเวรอ่านไม่รู้เรื่องชั้งเม่ง

  6. Every time I tried to make it my paper got torn so I made it with a thick paper. It's fun I tried toake this 26 times

  7. The way to fold this ball is completely simple, the hard thing is the accuracy must be at 100%

  8. After years I finally made one. Took four hours and it was like easy pattern but looks so complicated

  9. I made one that is 42L by 21W. Using an A3 piece of paper which is conveniently 42cm (L). It's actually quite big and works with any size that is in the ratio 2:1 (as mentioned in the video). 🙂

  10. Vengo del futuro, pasaron 56 años y por fin la termine. Por favor no sigan este tutorial o tendrán una vida eterna de frustración

  11. After half of the video i start questioning about my existence and what the hell am i doing
    Still not success…..

  12. NOTE: NEVER, NEVER, NEVER use cellotape. I did and it worked however, it made the job really tough. Use MASKING TAPE!

  13. my 3rd year rn hope i get it done. i never had been able to pass the part after making those tiny folds along the middle paper and then making the folds on the edges like a traignle. that had always stumpted me. TODAY IS THE DAY!!!!!!!!
