Origami Squishy Blob (Jeremy Shafer)


Hello! Today we will be folding an
Origami Squishy Blob designed by Jeremy Shafer. This is one of my favorite action models,
and it’s not very difficult to fold. This model requires one square sheet of paper
with color on one side and white on the other. We’re going to start with the colored side
up and we’re going to fold in half diagonally. So take the bottom right
corner and fold it up to the top left corner. Align the corners and the edges, then make
your crease, and then unfold. Then we want to make a diagonal crease
in the opposite direction. So take the bottom left corner and fold it up to the
top right corner. Again, align the corners and the edges, then make your crease, and
then unfold. Now we’re going to turn the paper over. And once it’s turned over, we’re
going to fold 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 fold in half horizontally. So take this bottom edge and fold it up
to the top edge. Again, align the corners and the edges, and make your crease, and then
unfold. Now we’re going to fold all four corners
into the center point where all those creases intersect. So we’re going to start with this bottom
right corner and we’re just going to pull it up like this. so align it with all those creases,
just like this. And then make your crease. And then you want to do the same thing
on the top right. So just pull it down and align it with that intersection. Or
you can align it with this edge of the flap we just folded in. So once you’ve aligned, then to make your
crease. And then we can move on to the top left. So just pull this one down,
again aligning it with that intersection. And again you can use the edge of this
flap that we just fold it in as a reference as well. So once you’ve aligned it, then again
make your crease. And then we’re going to do it one last time on the bottom left. So just pull it up like this, align with the intersection, or you can
use the edges of the other flaps we fold it in as references as well. So make
your crease, and once you’re done, you should have this. Now we’re going to create some creases
so that we can create rabbit ears on each of these four flaps. Now we’re going to start with this
bottom right flap here, and what we want to do first is align this vertical raw
edge with this folded edge here. So start at the very bottom where the
flap starts, and you’re just going to work your way up like this. So align the
two edges at the very bottom where the flap starts, and then work your way up
until the entire edge is aligned with that folded edge, just like this. Then make
your crease, and it should look like that. Then you want to unfold that and do the
same thing on this horizontal raw edge here. So align it with this folded edge as
well, but this time you’re starting at the right side of the model because the
flap starts over there. So you’re going to start at the right
side, just like this, and then work your way down until the entire edge aligns
with that folded edge there. And then it should look like that. And you can unfold
that as well. So now you’ve just added these two creases here. And now we’re
going to do the same thing on this top right flap. So we’re going to take this
horizontal raw edge and align it with this folded edge here. So start at the right side of the model
where the flap starts, and then work your way up so the entire edge aligns with
the folded edge there. So just like this, and then you can
unfold that as well. And now we’re going to do the same thing
on this vertical raw edge here. We’re going to align it with this folded edge over
there. So we’re just going to fold it over,
starting at the top where the flap starts, and then working your way down until the entire edge aligns with that folded edge, just like this. Then you can unfold
that one as well. And now we’re going to work on the top
left flap. So we’re going to start with this
vertical raw edge and align it with this folded edge here. Again, start at the top
and work your way down aligning the two edges, just like this. So
once it looks like this, then you can unfold it. And then we’re going to do the
same thing on this horizontal raw edge here. So we’re going to align it with
this folded edge here, starting at the left side of the model where the flap
starts. So just work your way up like this, aligning the two edges. Make your crease when it looks like that,
and then you can unfold it as well. And then we’re going to do it on this last
flap here. So we’re going to take this horizontal raw edge and align it with
this folded edge here. So start the right side of the model where the flap starts and
then work your way down, just like this, until the edges are both aligned. Once
it looks like that, you can unfold it. And then we’re going to do it one last time
on this vertical raw edge. So again, we’re going to align it with
this folded edge here starting at the bottom of the model and working our way
up, just like this. Start at the bottom, work your way up until the edges are
both aligned. Make your crease once it looks like that, and then you can unfold. Now we’re going to create a rabbit ear
on this bottom right flap here. So to do this, what we’re going to do is
fold these two edges back to this folded edge here at the same time. So you’re just
collapsing along with two creases we just created together. So go like this, and just bring the two
edges in along those creases that we just created, just like this. And then you’ll see you
have a little point sticking up in the middle. And once you have this, then you
can just fold it over like this. So fold it over to the right side as far
as it will go, and then you should have that. And now we’re going to create
another rabbit ear on this top right flap here. So to do this, we’re going to do the same
thing we did on the bottom right flap. We’re going to take these two edges and
align them with this folded edge here, still collapsing along the creases we
just created. So bring the two edges in towards the
folded edge, just like this, collapsing along the creases we just made. And once
it’s like this, you’ll have that point sticking up in the middle again. This
time you can fold it down, just like this, towards the other flap down there. And
now we’re going to create a rabbit ear on this top left flap as well. So to do this, we’re going to do the same
thing we did before by taking these two raw edges and aligning them with this
folded edge here. so again we are collapsing along these
creases we just made. So fold in the edges along those creases, just like this. And then pinch up in the middle so that you create that little flap that sticks
up like this. And once you have that flap, then you can fold it down, just like this,
as far as it’ll go. And now we’re going to make our last
rabbit ear on this bottom left flap here. So again, to do this we’re taking these
two raw edges and aligning them with the folded edge here, again folding along
these two creases we just created. So take these two edges and pull them
towards that folded edge, again pinching up in the middle so that we create that
little flap the sticks up like this. Then with this flap, you’re just going to fold
it over, just like this, to the left side as far as it’ll go. So once you’ve created all four rabbit
ears, your model should look like this. Now we’re going to turn the model over. And once it’s turned over, we’re going to
fold in half along this horizontal crease here. So we’re going to take this
top corner and fold it down to the bottom corner. So just align the corners, and it will
fold along the crease you already created. And then it should look like
this. Now we’re going to fold the model in
half once again, but this time were folding in half along this vertical crease here. So we’re going to take this right corner and fold it over to this left corner. So just fold the entire model in half,
just like this, along the existing crease. And once it looks like this, then you
want to take the top set of layers and hold it so it’s straight up and down,
just like this. Then you want to find the middle two layers and push your finger
inside of them, just enough to separate them a bit. So once you have it like this, then what
you want to do is pull on these two white flaps on the side here. So pull on the little flaps that we folded over before. And you’re going to pull them away from one another, just like
this, enough to squash fold that middle flap
there. So we’re essentially creating a preliminary base, only it has these two
flaps on the side here. Now we’re going to turn the model over. And once it’s
turned over, we’re going to fold up this top set of
layers here along this vertical crease in the center. So just fold it up like
this, and then what we want to do is again find these two center layers. And
then put your finger inside of them, just like this, enough to separate them a bit. Then you
want to pull on the small white flaps, just enough to separate the layers. And
squash-fold that square in the middle. And once you’ve done that, then it should
look like this. Now we’re going to make some pre-creases so we can sink the top of the model. So to do this, we’re just going to
take this top corner and fold it down as far as it will go. So just pull the top
down, just like this, and you’ll see once it reaches about here, it won’t want to go any further. And once
you have a straight edge across the top, you know that that’s where you want to
make your crease. So once you have that, then make your crease. And make sure you
create sharply because you’re creasing through a lot of layers. And once you
have that, then you can unfold. And you’ve created the creases for your sink. Now we’re going to unfold the model bit. So what you want to do is basically
look at it from the top and pull these two sides apart. So once you pull the sides apart, than
what you should be left with is a square with four rabbit ears inside of it. We first have to make mountain folds
along all four sides of the square. And the easiest way to do that is to just
pick up the model and pinch each side of the square from the top. So just pinch
like this, working your way around the square until
all four sides are mountain folds, just like this. And then you should easily be
able to see the square from the top. So now what we have to do with this square is collapse it into a waterbomb base. So the easiest way to do that, I find, is to
just push down in the middle of the square, and it might even start to
collapse itself a little bit like this. But if it doesn’t, what you want to do is
just push down the middle, and then push in all four sides of the square at the
same time. So just push in like this while still pushing down in the middle
of the square. So just go like this until all four sides come together like that,
and you’ll see that you’ve created that water bomb base in the middle, just like
this. And then you can also see that you’ve sunk this part of the model here. Now we’re going to fold the left and
right corners down to this bottom corner here. So let’s start with this right
corner, and we’re just going to take it and fold it all the way down to the
bottom corner there so that this top edge will align with this vertical
crease here. So just fold it down like this, and make your crease, and then do
the same thing on the left. So take this corner and align it with the bottom point there, again aligning that top edge with that vertical crease in the middle. So
fold it down like this, make your crease, and you should have
that. Then you want to turn the model over and do the same exact thing. So we’re going to start with this right
corner and then fold it down to the bottom point there, again aligning the edge
with the vertical crease, just like this. So make your crease, and then do the same thing on the left. So take this left corner and fold it down to the bottom
corner there, again aligning that edge with the vertical crease in the middle. So once you’ve done that, then your model
should look like this. Now we’re going to pull out the
innermost corners from both sides of the model. So let’s start with this right side, and
we’re just going to lift up this right top flap here. So just lift it up like
this, and then you should be able to see this flap inside here. So we’re going to
pull it out by grabbing it at the bottom and just pulling it to the right as far
as it’ll go. So just pull it out like this, and then
you can flatten it out so it looks like that. Then you want to do the same thing
on the left. So just pick up this left flap a little
bit here, and then you’ll be able to see this flap inside here. And you just want
to grab it at the bottom and pull it to the left as far as it will go, just like
this. Then flatten it out, and your model should look like this. Now we’re going to fold up these two
flaps on the bottom of the model. So let’s start with the one on the
right, and we’re just going to fold it over to this right corner here. Just fold
it over and align it with that corner, or you can just fold it over as far as it
will go, just like that. Then you want to do the same thing on the left by taking
this corner and aligning it with this corner. So just pull it over as far as it
will go, just like this, and then it should look like that. Then you want to
turn the model over and do the same exact thing. So start on this right side and bring
this corner to this corner. Just fold it over like this, and then do the same
thing one last time on the left by taking this corner and bringing it to this
corner. So just fold it over as far as it will go,
just like that. This is probably the best part of folding this model. Now what you need to do is
pull up this top layer here, just enough so that the model is in a square shape. And then you’ll notice that is not going to lie flat. So what you have to do is flatten out
these two squares on the side of the model there. So to do that, you’re just going to push the two sides of the square apart. And you’ll notice that this little square will
start to form in the middle of the paper. Now once it looks like that, then you’re
just going to squash that little square, just like that. And once you have this,
you can turn the model back over. Now we’re going to make a preliminary
base along existing creases, just like we did before. So we’re going to start by
taking this top corner and pulling it down to the bottom corner. Now as you do this, you’re just going to
fold down all the layers just like this. Then what you want to do is take this
right corner and fold it over to the left corner. So fold it in half along
this vertical crease here. Just fold it over like this so that your model looks
like this, then you’re going to do what we did before. So you’re just going to take this top
set of layers and you’re going to hold it so it’s straight up and down. Then you want to find the middle two
layers, and then push your finger inside of it just so that you separate them a
bit. Then this time, we don’t have those little flaps that we can pull apart. So you’re just going to have to pull
apart the sides of the square, just like this. So just pull it apart like this so that
you end up squash folding that square there. So once you’re done, it should look like
that. Then you can turn the model back over. And once it’s turned over, you’re going to do the same thing by
pulling up this top set of layers along this vertical crease in the middle here. So just pull it up like this, and then what you want to do is find the two
middle layers and then put your finger inside of it, again, just to separate it a
little bit. So once it looks like that, then you’re
just going to pull the two edges apart so that it squash folds into a square, just
like this. Now we’re going to make a petal fold. So
to do this, we’re going to take this bottom corner on the topmost layer and
we’re just going to pull it up like this so that you can see the white inside. And
once you can see the white inside, you’re going to notice that there are two
flaps on each side of the model. We’re going to be focusing on these inner-most
flaps, and what we want to do is align the edges of the innermost flaps with this
vertical crease and the edges running down the middle of the model. So to do
this, let’s start on this right side, and we’re
just going to fold this edge into that vertical crease. Now that shouldn’t be very difficult
since it will collapse along a crease we already created. Until you get halfway
down, then you’ll notice there’s no crease. So what you have to do is align this
edge with the edge underneath. So just go like this, align the edge with the edge
underneath so that you have something like that. Then make your crease. And
you’ve done that on one side .Then you want to do the same thing on this side.
So take this innermost edge and fold it in to that vertical crease, just like this. So work your way down until you get
about halfway. Then you have to align this edge with the white edge underneath. So just align it like this, make your crease, and then you should
have something like that. Then what you want to do it just close up the model. Once you can’t see any more white, then we’re going to turn the model over and
do the same thing on this side. We’re going to take this bottom corner
on the topmost layer, and we’re just going to pull it up a bit so you can see the
white inside of the model. Then again, you’ll see that we have two layers on
each side of the model, and we’re going to be working with the innermost layers. So start with this right one, and we’re going to align that edge with that
vertical crease. So just fold it in like this, and again you’ll be working with an
existing crease. So that part shouldn’t be too hard, then once you get halfway
down, you’re going to have to align this edge
with the edge underneath as well. So you’re just going to have to go like
this, align it with the edge underneath, then make a crease. Then you’re going to do the same thing on this side. So start at the top and just fold this side into that
vertical crease. Again, that shouldn’t be too difficult. Then once you get halfway
down, align this edge with the white edge
underneath and make your crease. And once you have this, then you can close the
model back up. Now we have to make two more petal folds. So to do this, we’re
going to take this top right group of flaps and we’re going to fold it over
along this vertical crease here. So just fold it over like this, and now you’ll
see that you have three groups of flaps on this side and you have one on this
side. So we have to turn the model over and then take this right group of flaps
on the top, and we’re just going to fold it over again along this vertical crease. So just fold it over like that, and now you’ll see that you have two
groups of flaps on each side. And now we’re going to do the same thing we did
before. So we’re going to take this bottom corner on the topmost layer and
we’re going to pull it up, just like this, so you can see the white inside. Then
once you can see the white inside, you’ll notice these two layers on each side
again. And you want to work with these innermost layers and fold them in to
that vertical crease. So start on the right and just fold it into that
vertical crease. And once you get halfway, you want to align this edge with the
edge underneath. So just fold it in like this, and make your crease, and you should
have that. Then you want to do the same thing on the left. So start at the top
and fold this edge into the vertical crease, just like this. And once you get
halfway, then align this edge with the white edge underneath. So just align it
like this and make your crease, just like this. And then you should have this. Then
once you can’t see any more white, then you can close the model up, and now we
have to make one more petal fold on the other side. So turn the model over just like this. So again, we’re doing what we did before by taking this bottom corner of the
topmost layer pulling it up like this. And again, you’ll see those two layers on
each side. Take the innermost layer, starting on the
right, and align it with that vertical crease, just like this. Work your way down, and then align this
edge with the edge underneath, just like that. Then once you’ve done that side, you want
to do the same thing on the left side. So just take this innermost edge, and
fold it into that vertical crease. Work your way down, and once you get half way,
then you want to align the edge with the edge underneath, just like this. Then you
want to close the model up once you can’t see any more white. So just hold it down like that. Now what you want to do is fold this
bottom corner on the topmost layer up to the top corner here. So we’re just going
to fold it up like this, and make your crease once the bottom has reached the top. And then you should have this. Then you want to turn the model over and do the same
exact thing. So take this bottom corner on the topmost layer and just fold it up
to that top corner there. So just fold it up like this. Again make your crease, and
it should look like this. And then what you want to do is take this top layer on
the left and pull it over to the right. So now you’re going to have three layers
on the right and one layer on the left. So to fix that, we have to turn the model
back over, and then we have to take this top most layer on the left once again
and then fold it over to the right. So now you should have two layers on the
right and two layers on the left. And once you have this, we’re going to do the
same thing we did before simply by taking this bottom corner on
the topmost layer and folding it up to the top point there. So just fold it up like
this, align the bottom with the top. Make your
crease, and then we have to do it one last time. So turn the model back over, and then
take this bottom corner and fold it up to the top, just like this. And then your
model should look like this. Now we’re going to add two new creases. One here and one here. So to do this, we’re going to take this top corner on
the top layer, and we’re going to fold it over to this left corner here. So as we do that, you’ll notice that the
model isn’t going to lie flat. It’s kind of 3D now. So before we kind of
flatten this out, you want to flatten out this little part
here. So this little little edge that we just fold it over there. That’s just going to make one of the two
creases we need. So now to make the other crease, we need to push up on this part
here. This is the part that is keeping the
model 3D, so push on this part from the bottom. And as you’re doing that, you kind
of want to push the rest of the model on top of it to flatten it out. So just go like this, and then push the
rest of the model down, just like that, to flatten it out. And then once you’re done,
you’ll see that what you’ve added is these two creases here. And now we have
to do the same thing once again. So turn the model over, and we’re going to do the
same thing on the back. So to do this, we’re going to take this top corner and
fold it over to the left corner, just like this. Once again, the model won’t lie flat, so
flatten this little edge here to make one of our creases, and then we’re going
to push up on this part, just like this. And then push the rest of the model down
on top of it. So push up like this, and then push the
rest of the model down on top of it, just to flatten it out. So once it looks like this, then what you
want to do is just see the creases you’ve added here and here. And now we have to
do the same thing on the other two layers. So we’re going to take this top
layer on the right, and we’re just going to fold it over along this vertical
crease here. So just fold it over like this, and now you’ll see that you have a
triangle without those two creases. So we have to do the same thing here. But
before we do that, we have to turn the model over and do the same thing by just
taking this top layer on the right and pulling it over along this vertical
crease here. So just fold it over like this, and then again you’ll see you have
a triangle without those two creases there. So to
make those creases, we’re going to do the same thing we did
before. So take this top corner and fold it over to the left corner. Fold it over
like this. Again, the model won’t lie flat, so you’re going to flatten out this
little edge here, just to make that one crease. And then to make the other crease,
we again have to push up on this part, making the model 3D. And then you’re
just going to squash it down, just like this. So use the other part of model to
flatten it out, just like that. Then if you go back, you can see that
you’ve added those two creases there. So now we have to do this one last time
by turning the model over and again taking this top corner and folding it
over to the left corner. Just fold it over like this. Again, the model will be
3D. Then flatten out this little crease here, and then to make our other crease,
we have to push up on this part here. And then we’re going to flatten it out with
the rest of the model. So just push it down like this, and once you’re done, you
can see that you’ve added these two creases here. Now we’re going to reverse fold these
two triangles on each side of the model. So we’re going to start with this top
one on the right, and what we’re going to do first is separate the layers so we
can see the triangle a bit better. Then once you’ve lifted this top layer, you
want to push up on the bottom of the triangle. So just push it up like this
until it goes into this region up here. Then once it’s up there, you want to align these edges of the
triangle with this long edge here. So just continue to push it up until the
edges align, just like this. And then once they align, you can flatten down the top of
the model on top of it, just like that. Then you want to move on to the one on
the left. And we’re going to do the same exact thing. So pick up this top layer. Just lift it
up a bit and push up on the bottom of the triangle. Push it into that region on
the top, and then align the edges of the triangle with this long edge here. And
once they align, then you can flatten out the top of the model, just like that. And then we want to do
the same thing on the back. So turn the model over , and then we’re going to start
on the right again. So we’re first going to lift this top
layer so we can see the triangle, and push up on the triangle from the bottom,
just like this. And make sure these edges from the triangle align with this long
edge here. And then you can flatten it down, just like this. And then we want to
do it one last time on the left. So we’re going to take this top layer,
just pull it up a bit. Then push up on the bottom of the
triangle. Align the edges of the triangle with this edge, and then flatten it back
up. And once you’ve done that, you’ve completed your four reverse folds. Now we’re going to add two more creases
to this triangle here. So we’re going to make our first crease by taking this
right edge and aligning it with this bottom edge here. So we’re just going to
take this, and starting in the bottom right corner, we’re going to align it
with that edge. So align the two edges, just like this. And then you’re not going
to make a crease all the way .You’re just going to crease about half way, just like this. Then once you’ve done
that, you can unfold and then do the same thing on the left. So take this left edge and align it with
this horizontal edge here. So start in the bottom left corner and work your way
right to align those two edges. And then make your crease about half way. And then
once you have that, then you can unfold. And now you’ll see that you’ve added
these two creases here. Now we’re going to turn the model over. And once it’s
turned over, we’re going to do the same exact thing
on this side. So we’re going to start with this right edge, and we’re going to
align it with this bottom horizontal edge here. So start in the bottom right corner,
and start aligning those edges. And once it looks like this, you can crease
about half way. And then you can unfold. Then you want to do the same thing on
the left. So align this edge with this edge here. So just start in the bottom
left corner and work your way over, and then once it looks like this, then
you can crease about half way. And then you can unfold. And now we have to do the
same thing on the other two sides. So to do this, we first have to rearrange the
layers. So we’re going to start by taking this top group of layers on the right
and we’re going to fold it over to the left along this vertical crease. So just
fold it over, just like this. And then we want to turn the model over. And once
it’s turned over, we should have three groups of layers
over here on the right and one group of layers on the left. So to even it out, we have to take this
top group of layers on the right and fold it over to the left along this
vertical crease. So just fold it over like this, and now there are two groups of
layers on each side. And now we have to do exactly what we did before. So we’re
going to make these two creases by first taking this right edge and aligning it with
this bottom edge here. So start in the bottom right corner and align the edges,
just like this. And work your way over, and then make your crease about half way, just like this. Then you can unfold. And then you want to
do the same thing on the left. So take this left edge here and align it
with this bottom horizontal edge there. So start in the bottom left corner, and
work your way over again only creasing half way. And then you can unfold, and then
we have to do the same thing one last time on the other side. So turn the model over. And once it’s turned over, we’re going to take this right edge and align it with
this bottom horizontal edge there. Again, start at the bottom right corner, align the edges and crease about half
way. And once you’ve done that, then you can unfold and do the same thing on the
left. So take this left edge and fold it over to this bottom horizontal edge here. So fold it over like this, align the edges,
and then crease about half way. And then you can unfold. And now you’ve added those
creases to all four sides. Now we’re going to collapse along
existing creases. And we’re going to start by taking this top corner and
bringing it down to the left corner just like we did before. So as you do
that, you’ll notice that the model won’t lie flat again. And to make it lie flat, you have to push up on this existing
crease and then squash the model down on top of it just like we did before. So now you should have this. You have
these two little zigzag shapes here, and now inside each zigzag, there’s a
triangle. As you see this triangle here. And what you want to do is take this top
edge of this triangle and bring it down to this bottom edge of the triangle. So basically your reverse folding it, and
we’re going to be reverse folding along existing creases. So it shouldn’t be that difficult to
just fold it down like this, aligning the top edge with the bottom
edges, just like this. So it should collapse along that existing crease and
look something like that. Then you can close that side up and do the same thing
on the next triangle. So what you’re going to do is take this
top edge and bring it down to those two bottom edges there. So you’re just going to pull it down
like this, and then you can close model up just to complete the reverse fold. And
you’ll see that you’ve added those two reverse folds there. And then you want to
do the same thing on the next one by taking this top corner and bring it
over to the left corner. Only this time, it’s not going to lie
flat at all. But to flatten this part out, we want to push up and then squash the
rest of the model on top of it. Now it’s not going to lie flat because
we already collapsed this part, so what we’re going to do is collapse
this part as well, which is going to make the model even more 3D. So we’re going to
start with these triangles once again. So take the top edge of this triangle and
reverse fold it down to the bottom edge of the triangle, just like this. Again,
we’re using existing creases, so it shouldn’t be very difficult. Then you want to move to the next one
and reverse fold by taking that top corner and bringing it down to that bottom edge
there. So just like this, then you can close
that part of the model up. And then we’re going to move on to the next side. On
this side we’re going to do the same exact thing. So let’s take this top corner and bring
it over to the left, just like that. And then you can kind of squash it down
even though it won’t lie flat. And then we want to reverse fold these two little
triangles once again. So just take the top edges and align it with the two
bottom edges, just like this. And then you can close the model up, just like that. And
you’ll see you’ve added those two reverse folds. Then you want to do the same thing one
last time. So we’re going to take the top edge and bring it over to the left edge. Bring it over like this, again collapsing
just by bringing the model together like that. Then we’re going to reverse fold
two more times by taking the top edges and bringing them down to the two bottom edges, just like this. And now you’ve created all these reverse
folds. Now our Squishy Blob is almost complete. The only thing we have to do now is reverse fold these four little triangles
here that are kind of closed up and flat. Here’s the first triangle will be
reverse folding. Now you’ll see that it’s in between these two reverse folds
we made before. So this first one, it’s really the same thing we did before. So if you open it up, and you’ll see that it’s a triangle just like the other ones. And what you want to do is basically take this top edge and align it with the
two bottom edges down there. Now I’ve marked the creases that you’ll be adding
just so it’s a little bit easier to see. So really you’re just going to take this
and pull it down and try to align it as best as you can with both of those two
edges. And once you’re done, you’ll see that you’ve made a little reverse fold,
just like this. Now you want to move on to the next one. So rotate the model, just like this, and you want to find the next triangle that
needs to be reverse folded. So we’re going to take this triangle and open it
up just like we did before. And then you’re going to take this top edge and
bring it down to those two bottom edges. So just fold it down like this. Again,
it’s easier to do as you collapse it like this. Just bring it together like this, making
sure the edges align. And then you can close it up. Then you’ll see that you’ve
made a little reverse fold, just like this. Then we want to move on to the next one. So just rotate the model, and here’s the
next reverse fold we need to make. So we’re going to make this one simply by doing
the same thing. So just open it up like this. So take this top edge and fold it
down to the two bottom edges. So just go like this, and then try to align it as best
as you can with those edges, just like this. Again, it’s easier to do as you
collapse it like that. So just make sure the edges align and
then you can move on to the next one. So for now, it should look like this. And
then you’re going to turn the model so that you can move on to the last one. For
this last one, you’re going to do the same thing. Just open it up, take the top edge, and pull it down to
the two bottom edges, just like this. Align the edges, and then collapse it. And
once you’ve done that, your Squishy Blob is complete! I hope you’ve enjoyed this video

  1. @99moneylover omg…. just trying to kid around a little and some nerd comes by "its 229 doofus" geez…

  2. It's just that Evan (this kid that you guys call gay) takes a lot of time to explain each and every step. Although it was a little lenghty, great tutorial anyways.

  3. Ignore what some people say about going too slow, they can always skip around the video if they need too. And while it's a bit slow for even myself, I can tell you I would much rather the instructions are slow and concise that too fast and poorly explained! 🙂
    Also, many thanks for posting a link in the description for the creators book. LOTS of cool projects in there, just ordered my copy off of Amazon 😀

  4. io non posso sentire le tue parole nella spiegazione, per cui tutto risiede nell'osservare bene i tuoi movimenti, e fare questo per me è molto facile, grazie alla precisione, delicatezza a velocità ridotta, grazie, per me sei numero uno.

    I can not hear your words in explanation, so all good lies in observing your movements, and do this for me is very easy, thanks to the precision and sensitivity at reduced speed, thank you, to me you're number one.
    apologize to everyone for my bad language, I do not speak English, I write from Sardinia.
