Origami Pinwheel Cube (Folding Instructions) – Part 1


Hello! Today we will be folding an Origami Pinwheel Cube. This model requires 6 sheets of paper, color on
one side white on the other. Now we will fold our first module. First, take the paper and fold it in half
diagonally. Unfold and fold in half the other way diagonally. Unfold and you should have this. Next, you’ll fold the top and bottom
corners into the center where the two last creases intersect. So first start off by taking the top
corner and folding it into that intersection. And do the same with the
bottom. Next, flip the model over, and fold the top and
bottom edges into the center crease Do the same with the bottom, and you should have something like this. Next you’re going to fold these two
little corners in. What you have to do is line up this point with these two flaps
where they meet. So you’re just going to fold that corner
in, just like that. And do the same with this one. And you should have something like this. Next, flip the model over, and you’re going to pull the top flap
down so that it meets where those two creases intersect. And do the same with the bottom and unfold. Now you should have two creases just like that. Now, what you have to do is unfold one of
the flaps, and along that crease you just created, fold it down into the
intersection you see here. And then fold flat back up just like it was before. And
do the same with the bottom. Fold the flap up along the crease we just created. Fold
it into the intersection and fold the whole model back to the way it was
before. And you should have something like this. Now what you’re going to do is take the the corner and fold it down along this
line. If you can imagine a line created by these raw edges, that’s what you’re going to make a
crease on. So fold this top left corner down along that line. So you should have something like that. And now you’re going to do the same thing with the bottom right corner. Imagine a line running like this, and
you’re just going to fold that flap up. You should have this. Now you can unfold both of them, and you should have a crease running here and here. Now what you’re going to do is insert
these flaps into the model. So how we do that is: pull the bottom
flap up just a little bit and then fold the top left flap inside. Now fold that
bottom flap back up, and then you just folded that flap inside the model. Now you’re going to do the same thing
with the bottom right flap. You’re going to open up the top layer just a little bit, and
you’re going to insert the bottom right flap into that pocket. And you should
have something like this. Next you are going to flip the model over. Now we’re going to create two creases
running parallel, just like that. And the way we do that is we line up this corner
with the top right corner of the model. So you’re just going to align those two
and make a crease. Make that sharp because it will be through several
layers. Now you’re going to do the same thing
here. And what you want to do is fold it over to the bottom left corner of the model, just like that. Crease sharply and then
you should have two creases like this. Now you have created one module. It should look like this, so now you must
fold 5 more.

  3. or you could use your brain because in the first part of the video and could count the paper or use common sense to figure out that a cube has SIX sides meaning you will need SIX pieces of paper, this much is easy enough to be done by a toddler

  6. Thank you so much, your instructions are nice and clear, and your video quality lets me see what you're doing perfectly.
