Chair By Perry Bailey 1997

1. Fold over then unfold. 2. Fold both sides to center.

3. Fold both sides in to the center again, then unfold and turn over.

Approximate center

5. Fold up about half way to the previously noted center, This will bring the flap from the back to the front.

4 Fold up to around the center of the model turn over.

7. Fold a little of the top layer down for neatness. The precrease the top layer.

8. Fold the back of the chair behind while bringing the front of the chair down to form the seat.

10. From the back it should look like this, note the two pockets at the bottom when you fold the top down tuck it into the pockets to lock it into shape.

6. Fold up the flap, or unfold it according to your perspective.

9. The front should look like this. Turn it around.

11. Finished chair. Now figure out a which point a simple reversal would hide the lines shown in the seat and back of the chair!

Chrysalis This is a unique mix of Traditional forms that tie together one flows into the next the sequence is so simple and natural that it makes a good teaching lesson for showing how one model can flow into another more complex model. I take no credit for this sequence of folds all I did was tie them together to provide a lesson plan a long time ago.

1. Fold the model in half on the diagonal Crease well and unfold.

2. Fold both sides into the center daigonal crease.

3. Valley fold the model in half on the diagonal.

4. Inside reverse fold the top down to form the head.


Tap the crows tail and see him peck at the ground.

5. This is the first stage of the model the pecking crow.

6. For the next step in the models progress unfold the head.

7. Fold the bottom edge up on each side of the model.

8. Outside reverse fold the upper part of the model to form it’s neck. (Also a good way to teach Outside and inside reverse folds.)


9. Another ouside reverse fold to form the pidgeons head.

If you push down on the pidgeon just behide the neck you can make the head move forwards and back just like the pidgeons do in the park!

10. This is the finished pigeon.

11. Now to finish up pleat the the head in to form a beak and reverse fold the back end of the model up to form the ducks tail feathers (optionaly you could fold with an inside reverse fold the tip of tail feathers down.)

12 Finaly the end of the sequence is here! You have a duck! If you are fond of mischief and are doing this for a young person, you could show them how they can stick a finger or a thumb into the pockets on both sides of the duck and pull outward, thus forming the dreaded attack duck!


Coot By Perry Bailey Copyright 2000

White side up

2. Fold up a little less than 1/3 from the top.

1. Fold a square in half on the diagonal one direction then fold in half on the diagonal the other way.

10. Grab the inner flap again and bring at least part of it back up again. This time it doesn’t have to go the length of the flap.

9. Grab the inner flap and reverse fold that puppy all the way to the end of flap, so it comes down even with the bottom of the model.

NOTE: When the model is finished there should be a flap sticking up inside of the model you can fold over to lock the body together.

4. Fold the long edge up to the top on each side. The finished Coot!

8. Just taking a break here to say to mention how far the tail sticks out all depends on step 2.

7. Pleat the beak in a little for that waterfowl look!

3. Fold the model in half, and turn 90 degrees.

5 . Reverse fold up the neck, part of neck is inside the body, you know the neck is right when it touches at the underlying layers in the front.

6. Another outside reverse fold for the head.

Hajtásfajták / Fold types Magyar It may sound strange but it is true that every origami model is built up fr om the same set of fold types. Thus, if you learn (or already know) the following techniques of folding, you shall not have pr oblems folding the models in this book. The folds types are related with each other, since all of them are a specific composition of "valley" and "mountain" folds (which ar e named differently only because of the viewer's point of view, otherwise they are the same). In the following explanatory diagrams the pictures whose number is highlighted, show how that specific fold type is denoted later in the models ' diagrams.

Völgyhajtás / Valley fold 

Hegyhajtás / Mountain fold

B





Oda-visszahajtás (élezés) Fold and unfold (creasing)

2

Ha valamely elozo hajtást (hajtásokat) vissza kell hajtani, azt egy kétoldalt hátranyilazott nyíl jelöli. Ugyanez a nyíl jelöli, ha valamennyi papírt ki kell húzni egy helyrol. Unfolding an earlier step will be indicated by a double hollow arrow. This same arrow will also denote if you have to pull out some paper.

Jelmagyarázat, alaphajtások

A B

Hegyhajtásnál (1) a papírt magunktól elfelé (hátra) hajtjuk. A fenti példában az "A" élet lehajtjuk a "B" mögé (2). A hegyhajtást pont-pont-vonal és hátranyilazott feju nyíl jelöli. A mountain fold (1) means "fold the paper behind (away from yourself)". In the example above, you fold edger "A" down behind "B" (2). A mountain fold is denoted by a dot-dot-dash line and a hollow arrow.

Visszahajtás / Unfold

Völgyhajtásnál (1) a papírt magunk felé hajtjuk. A fenti példában az "A" élet lehajtjuk a "B"-re (2). A völgyhajtást szaggatott vonal és egyszeru vonalnyíl jelöli. A valley fold (1) means "fold the paper towards yourself". In the example above, you fold edge "A" down to "B" (2). A valley fold is denoted by a dashed line and a normal line-arrow.

Az oda-visszahajtás vagy "élezés" (1) tulajdonképpen egy völgyhajtás és egy visszahajtás egy lépésbe való összevonása. Egyik felén (amerre hajtunk) völgyhajtás, a másikon (amerre visszahajtjuk) visszahajtás nyíl jelöli. Fold and unfold, or "crerasing" (1), in fact, gathers a valley fold and an unfold in one step. It is indicated by a valley fold arrow on one end (in the direction you fold) and an unfold arrow on the other (in the direction you unfold).

Redozés / Pleat 1

A redozés egy völgy- és egy hegyhajtásból áll (ha szükséges, a kép alatti cikcakk megmutatja a redot oldalnézetben). A pleat consists of a valley and a mountain fold (a zigzag under the picture shows the order of the layers after pleating, if needed).

Nyúlfülhajtás / Rabbit ear 

1 A nyúlfülhajtás (3) három völgy- és egy hegyhajtás kombinációja. Könnyebb, ha eloször elohajtunk (12), s csak azután kezdjük el magát a nyúfülhajtást (4-5-6). Nyúlfülhajtást forgóhajtás segítségével is lehet készíteni (lásd alább). The rabbit ear (3) is a combination of three valley and one mountain fold. It is easier to precrease first (1-2) and start folding the rabbit ear only after that (4-5-6). A rabbit ear can also be made by means of a swivel fold (see below).

Forgóhajtás / Swivel-fold 

1 Forgóhajtásnál (4) úgy hajtunk át egy csúcsot, hogy a papír egy másik része is hajtásra kényszerül (azaz elfordul). A hajtás közben az itt "A"-val jelölt papírrész elforgatását eredményezi (5-6). The swivel fold (4) means folding a corner over so that some remote paper is forced to fold as well. The swivel fold makes the paper here marked with "A" rotate (5-6).

The wrap (2), if observed closely, is similar to a closed sink but by wrapping, a layer is "swinged" ar ound an edge rather than a corner being sunk underneath a layer. To make a wrap, open up the flap to be wrapped as far as possible ( 2- 3), then suddenly invert the whole ( 3- 4- 5) - partly unfolding the model will help.

Cutting “dollar” rectanges from a square Gay Merrill Gross showed me this method at ORCA. It more closely approximates (at 2.427:1) the dollar’s true proportions (2.436:1) than a 3-by-7 rectangle (2.333), and is more convenient too.

1. A square and an 8.5” x 11” rectangle are shown. Longer rectangles work too. Fold and unfold.

4. Cut along horizontal crease lines, discarding the top edge-piece. A square yields 2 “dollars”, while the 8.5” x 11” sheet yields 3.

2. Only the square shown from now on. Bisect and unfold, marking only at the right edge.

3. Valley-crease where mark hits right edge. Then mountaincrease an equal distance above. With an 8.5” x 11” sheet, valleycrease again above that.

This is a stem for Kawasaki’s rose, seen in Kasahara’s book, Origami for the Beginner. valley fold mountain fold Start from a square piece of paper, folded in thirds. Prefold according to the diagram at the left. A crude representation of the stem is shown below. Flip this over, and fit the square area under the four folded flaps on the reverse side of Kawasaki’s rose.

If my memory serves me correctly, using a piece of paper twice the size of that used for the rose will give a good sized stem. an original (or so I think) fold, diagrammed by A. Anselmo, 6/93.

Temate Baku

Traditional

This model has recently been reworked by Kunihiko Kasahara from an old picture. The picture was discovered by Kunihiko in a Japanese book about architecture. It was a Japanese design for a carved wooden room decoration, showing various Origami objects. The book dates from 1734 and thus this model is older than that. When you have finished this modular box you may open it from any side.

4. Reverse-fold. Rotate 60 degrees. 5. Triangle C will be the base of the tetrahedron. All valley folds are 120-degree planar angles. Tuck D into pocket at bottom edge of C.

7. Done. There are 2 pockets you could have tucked E into. The one in the front face covers the seam, but locks loosely. The one in the right face makes a tighter lock, but leaves the seam visible.

6. Model is now 3-D. Wrap around with 120-degree planar valley folds, and tuck E into pocket on right side of front face.


Throw Your Heart Away! By Perry Bailey c 2000

1. Precrease an A sized piece of paper with a water bomb base at the top. This seems to work best with light weight paper, turn over,.

2. fold the corners to the center on the top. Then turn over the model.

4. Swivel fold out the two sides at the top of the model. 3. Fold the top of the model into a water bomb base.

crease from before

Note crease 5. This looks harder than it is, really you are doing 2 swivel folds. Use the crease created in step 4 as a guide, it will come in along the center edge of the model.

6. this is how it should apear at this time. In the next figure I will enlarge the picture.


7. Mountain fold the entire top of the model back at the point of the triangle. Turn the model over.

8. Swivel fold up both sides as far upwards as you can.

9. Fold the tip of the point down to round out the heart. turn the model back over.

10. crese the model like shown.

12. Note that in the folding you created a handle to hold the plane by to throw it! Now you can throw your heart away! Will it come back or will it keep on going? 11. Note don’t crease it to tightly!
