For May the Fourth… EZ Origami Jabba Instructions +more!

Happy Star Wars Day, SuperFolders! May the Fourth be with you!


To celebrate, here are instructions for making Origami Jabba with a bonus Salacious Crumb!
Plus, I’m going to spill a little secret about Darth Paper at the bottom of the post…

And… Congratulations to our contest winner(s) Bridget and Jimmy who guessed that Origami Jabba would be the star today. (Yes, we have two winners. Long story. But they both deserve it!) Bridget and Jimmy, have your parents email me an address where I can mail your prize.

So here are the instructions…



Okay, ready for a little Darth Paper Strikes Back secret?
I hoped to show you the cover today, but it has received final approval yet.
So I’ll mention something it says on the back cover….
“Bonus Game and Origami Instructions”

What do you make of that?

No movie news, just in case you were wondering…. That’s going to take a bunch of people in Hollywood to get excited about the book.

  SuperFolder Boba Fett wrote @

It is?Well that shouldn’t take so long since the book is amazing im sure eventually things will stretch out :D

Well, it won’t take long for those people to find how awesome your books are!

I tried to fold it. Couldn’t. Too hard. So I invented my own Origami Jabba! It’s really simple. I don’t think I could make instructions, Though.

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Good! Inventing your own is always good!
That’s how I came up with my Yoda and the book, because the Yoda I wanted (Kawahata’s) was just too hard for me…

  valetreaty wrote @

Is it possible to get other printed paper? Like, do you have paper for Origami Yoda or Darth Paper or something?

  valetreaty wrote @

Also, will there be folds for other characters in starwars in the Art2-D2 book? Like, General Grevious or a clone trooper or a Darth Maul?

  valetreaty wrote @

Also, will there be a cover Art2-D2? like there was simple yoda, intermediate yoda, and a cover yoda(complex). Same thing for Darth Paper too.

  THE-1-0 wrote @
