Star Wars Origami: Video Instructions On How to Fold with the Force

Last year, we highlighted the impressive paper skills of Brian Chan and his origami designs based on manga. Since then, we’ve found a host other talented people who have not only given the world some impressive, original origami versions of Star Wars characters, but also video instructions on how you can recreate them own at home. So if you’ve got the paper, and the time, read on to see how you can make your own Star Wars creations.

Yoda

This video is actually only part one of a four part series. The total time for constructing this Jedi Master is a minimum of 40 minutes, and that’s if you’re a seasoned pro. Good luck. The good news is that if you complete this project you need only lift an X-Wing from the swamps of Dagobah to complete your training.

Boba Fett

The time to make this famous bounty hunter is less than 10 minutes, not bad, although you’re only left with the mask. No sweet jetpack, sorry.

TIE-Fighter

TIE-Fighters are strange phenomenon to me. They are tools of oppression, yet I want one so very badly.


Millennium Falcon

As cool as TIE-Fighters are, I think we can all agree that this is the spaceship you want. Note making an origami Millennium Falcon will not get you hot babes like Harrison Ford. Trust me.

Jedi & Others

The above photo comes from Phillip West’s Flickr set, which has several more beautiful designs. Unfortunately, there aren’t any instructions for them, but perhaps you can figured it out now that you’ve completed the four set above. You have been making these as we go along, haven’t you?

There are, however, some other places you can go online for directions on how to make other Star Wars characters. Like this easy-to-follow PDF for C3P0, or this remarkably detailed page for a Jar Jar Binks [Note: The linking to these instructions in no way reflects ComicsAlliance, AOL, or any of its affiliate partners' endorsement of Jar Jar Binks]. There’s even an entire website devoted to the subject of Star Wars origami. But be warned, the page seems to have been built a long time ago in a galaxy called 1992.

If origami isn’t your pick of poison, Bonnie Burton has written a book about all kinds of Star Wars crafts that you can do while re-watching the prequels to see if George Lucas will change anything for the 3-D release in 2012. All right, maybe that’s not why Burton made the book, but that’s what I’m going to be using it for, and I don’t care what my mother says, it doesn’t make me less attractive to women.

If you’ve got a favorite Star Wars craft, leave a comment below and we’ll be best friends! Which will be great, because I really need a place to watch those prequels.
