Finally! Instructions for folding an Origami Yoda like the one on the cover!

IMPORTANT: If you’re just looking for a simple Origami Yoda to fold, GO HERE.


The truth is that this Yoda is not folded the same way as the one on the cover of “The Strange Case of Origami Yoda.” However, it looks similar… sometimes.

The great thing about this particular origami Yoda design is that there’s plenty of room to “sculpt” Yoda the way you want to. Of course, the bad thing is that sometimes your sculpture may come out looking a little funny. (Like the one in these instructions, perhaps!

I call this Origami Yoda the Deluxe model. It will be helpful if you have already folded my SIMPLE YODA model and maybe even my WORLD’S EASIEST MODEL.

If you just want to fold a nice Yoda finger puppet without a lot of bother, then I recommend one of the other two. This one is really for the person who’s willing to wrestle with the paper a while.

If that’s you then here it goes…

Begin with a 7 inch X 5 inch piece of paper. If it’s two-colors, then start with the robe color up.

First, fold down at a point 4.25 inches from the bottom. Like this:


Now we’re going to create a series of pleats. A pleat is just a little paper zig-zag made by making two folds close together. It’s the same way we made Yoda’s arms in the simple model.

The placement of these pleats is going to give Yoda his personality. The first one makes his mouth. On the left you can see the two folding lines. On the right … I’m afraid you can’t see much at all, but there is a zig-zag there now running all the way across.

This picture may give you a clearer idea of how a pleat works. In this case fold up and crease, then fold back down on a new line just above the crease. The result is a zig-zag in the paper.

Next we’ll make two seperate pleats very close together to make his eyes. The bottom pleat is just like the one you made a minute ago. The top pleat is an upside-down version of it.

It’s hard to see in those pictures, so here is a side view showing the pleats:

The next pleat should be easy, because it’s the same as from the Simple Yoda, except that we want to keep it much lower down on the body:

Looks like a huge mess doesn’t it? It’s going to get worse.

Now we’re going to make the ears … again, the same way we did in the simple model. First bo folding down both top corners:

And then tucking them inside. The pleats make this a little tricky. Don’t worry; it doesn’t have to be perfect:

Now flip it over and fold both sides in at an angle:



Now fold the ears out:

And now the big moment, fold the head down. Yoda’s mouth is at the very top. Fold it down so that it comes just above the arms…

Now here’s you chance to do some paper sculpting. Use the pleats to create eyes and a mouth. You can also [GENTLY] pull out the top layer of paper from the pleat on the ear to make those more sculptural as well:

Now fold back part of his robe, while letting his arm stick out. If you crease very carefully, it will create little green triangles. This is a delicate operation, but it MAY leave you with a small green hand that you can bend back:

A little tucking and folding at the edges of the robe, should allow Yoda to stand up like this.

I think the eyes are too high on this particular Yoda. The one I was drawing dotted lines on turned out better … except for his teeny hand. I may try to refold that part:

As I said, there’s a lot of room for “sculpting” and sometimes it works out better than others.

Experiment a few times and when you get a good one … send me a picture for this Website!

Good luck … and may the force be with you!

What a wonderful model! This shows that a professional Origami master made this! I think this model of Yoda can be made from ages 11-15. If your ready to make complex Origami, start off with this model,when you finish this model, it will make you proud!

Hey, maybe one of you guys could write up better instructions? Seriously, that would be a huge help. I know several people have folded this Yoda, maybe they can explain it better than I can….
If you do write instructions send them to me and I’ll post them here on the site….

Great instructions; I’ll try it out on my own. :)

i bet Dwight had to think hard to make his own origami Yoda.i made it but where did the hand part come in???

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Here’s what Harvey says…

“No way is that hand part of the same sheet of paper! I’ve folded enough Origami to know that there’s no way Dwight got a corner to stick out right there. No way!”

i have to go with Harvey. I could not get the arm! my mom could not either!!!

The arm is tricky. Not much paper to work with. At least not where you may want it.
Sometimes you have to manhandle it and then go back later to try to make it look nice.

What’s a kawahata?

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Kawahata is the name of the Japanese paper folder (actually a Toyota Engineer) who created the best ever origami Yoda.

  joshua benson wrote @

its a cat!!! just kiddin its the last name of a chinese or japanese dude who was good at origami

  joshua benson wrote @

all right all you folders who said it was hard [u know who u are.] when it comes to the head part fold the hed DOWN. if thats the part u need help on there u go!!!

  Isaac wrote @

We are wondering where you get, or who manufactures the two-toned origami paper, particularly in those very yoda-y colors.

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

It’s gift wrap. I found a little more this past Christmas, but I had to look in many stores to find it…

  Javier wrote @

Hey Tom did you see my video? A link and instructions to how to find my video is in an earlier comment here.

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Those instructions were harder than Kawahata’s Yoda! :)

ask away!

  joshua benson wrote @

can u help me get a g-f just kiddin

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

The light saber on the cover is a special effect. But it wouldn’t be THAT hard to make a lightsaber from a LED and some other scrounged parts. I’m kind of surprised no one has done it yet….

you make a small strip of paper getting thinner as it goes up. then fold up the bottom

HERE WE GO AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  a calm folder wrote @

i mean it looks all crumply and i cant figure out how to make the eyes.

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

That’s about how it’s supposed to look! Give it another try. The key to the eyes is to squish and bend the paper, not fold it or tear it…

i had so much truble trying to make it, i never fineshed. do you recomend any practices besides the other two yodas listed at the top?

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

I think it’s very hard. Even when you know how to make it, it is hard to get the pleats in the right place. My advice… fold something else…. Like R2D2 maybe…

  Greedo wrote @

What, Tom! Telling them NOT to do this one and do a different one!

Okay, scratch that. The R2-D2 is good.

Hey Tom! I finally got that hand!

  joshua benson wrote @

hey tom is the yoda that dwight brings to school the cover yoda because in the book dwight shows him how to make a simpler origami yoda

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Yes, the cover Yoda is Dwight’s Yoda. But it was too hard for Tommy and the others to make, so Dwight showed them the simpler version.

  Greedo wrote @

Also, I want to know….. Are you Tommy? Your name is Tom, so I figured I would ask.

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

No, Tommy’s a lot more mellow than I was…

  joshua benson wrote @

so easy to make and tom can u please answer the question above this one

  Ace Folder Roy wrote @

I made a different version of the Deluxe Yoda. Not only does it ROCK, it’s also my own design!

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Send me a picture, dude! It sounds awesome!

  Ace Folder Roy wrote @

I sent you it in a letter.

  Robby wrote @

i did the same

  Ace Folder Roy wrote @

Also,I made a TEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENY Yoda that’s like,1/5th the size of a dime.

  Logan wrote @

Hey guys, use the same size of paper in that simpler model of Yoda so that the ears show alot.

  Logan wrote @

Also, to make a simpler pleat. fold the bottom up.(BUT NOT ALL THE WAY!) Then fold down. then fold behind. Then when you fold the head down, there are three parts: Top is head, middle is eyes, and bottom is mouth. Then fold the top of the middle down.(MAKE SURE THERES A LITTLE “LINE SPACE” IN BETWEEN!) And there you go, you’v made a “simpler” Deluxe Yoda.

  Logan wrote @

Also, to make a simpler pleat, fold the bottom up.(BUT NOT ALL THE WAY!)Then fold down. Flip over, then fold his head back. After you fold his robe and fold his head down there are three parts: TOP: HEAD, MIDDLE: EYES, AND BOTTOM: MOUTH. (IF YOU HAVE MADE ONE, IT MAY HELP YOU FIGURE OUT WHERE THE EYES GO.) And thats how to make a simpler pleat.

  joshua benson wrote @

i made a vid!!! tom i will TRY to send the vid of this orgami yoda by tatooine air mail!!! just kiddin i might upload it to youtube if i get an acount

  Dominic and his awesome yoda wrote @

Thanks for the tip Logan!!!! I’ll try it!!

  Dominic wrote @

Omgg!! I was making an origami dinosaur with the bird base and got bored, so I starded goofing around with the paper and I accidentally made my own version of an origami dragon!!!

Try not. Do or do not. There is no try.

  Anna wrote @

OMG it was so confusing the first time.

i made an awesome lightsafer though!!!

  Greedo wrote @

Hey, Tom,
I found a typo in the instructions. Here it is:
Now we’re going to make the ears … again, the same way we did in the simple model. First “bo” folding down both top corners.
“bo” should be “by”

a lightsaber has to wheigh at least 1 pound because of metal handle thats probably wheighs quite a bit,and think about all the wiring inside of it to make the power cristal beam out of the handle.and also the power crystal probably wheighs a bit to

Believe or not, soon enough I will be posting some of the origami finger puppets that I made up myself. They are used for my puppet show series called “Wisdom Battles”. It is about these characters named David .M. Cameron the head leader of the ESP (Extine Space Patrol) System, and the Evil General Neo Cortex. Neo Cortex is tring to atempt the final destruction of the ESP Station so that the ESP’s will no longer protecct the universe. So he makes plans at his station the, Despucton Star with his 2nd in command, A-doy (Yoda backwards), an evil creature from the Spiral of Happenings in the in the middle of space where all kind of creature with plenty of “wisdom” live. And since A-doy was from the bottom parts of the spiral, he knows plenty of evil. So the NCS (Neo Cortex Supporter) set out to destoy and inialate the ESP’s. I the midst of this, a creature from the upper part of the Spiral of Happenings comes along and desides to help the ESP’s. Through his knowledge of Good Wisdom, the ESP’s are able to defeat the NCS’s and to keep the universe under control and safety from Neo Cortex’s snares.

I made one but the head wouldn’t stay down so I eneded up super gluing it.

  jesse wrote @

i did it i did it!it is awsome!

  Super folder Epvjupa wrote @

I have an easy yoda. I call it the mixed yoda. First, do a pleat on the top. Then, do that weird rolling thing up to the pleat. Then make easy yoda. PS. I have not calculated the exact size. My estimate is 1 and a half sheet (you will have to sticky tape that together). If you find it does not work, just reply.

  Super folder Epvjupa wrote @

Oh and Tom, in The Secret Of The Fortune Wookiee, did Dwight teach the kids at Tippett to fold the deluxe yoda or just the emergency yoda? I mean if you of all people have trouble with it, what chance would a bunch of kids who barely know what origami is have?

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Just the emergency Yoda…

Dear Mr. Angleberger

Jacob
