Origami Stormtroopers

Instead of working on the stuff I really should be getting done, I’ve been trying to fold Origami Stormtroopers yet again.

This time, the results are semi-satisfactory. Here are some of the preliminary folds:

And here is the finished piece:

Note: This is a sheet of paper that is black on one side, white on the other. The eyes are the black side of the paper. The mouth and the black spots on the sides are merely added decorations. (On some of the preliminary models, the black spots are actually created by origami, but it takes a lot of fussing and fiddling to get them in the correct spot and then they still look all lumpy.)

First Ever Origami Yoda Poetry

Here’s a poem from Super-Folder Ben. I would call him a Super-Rhymer, but it isn’t that kind of poem….


Thanks, Ben!


UPDATE: Now Ben has a limerick:

There was once an Origami Yoda
People thought he lived in a pagoda
He was made by a kid named Dwight
Who was bonkers in the head because his head was quite tight
Which gave Dwight his nimble fingers that could fold Origami Yoda


Anyone else want to send in a poem? I’ll post them here if you do…
