Written directions for Origami Yoda… @lizb

SuperFolders, I am experimenting with creating written directions that could be used by visually-impaired folders. See what you think and give advice for imnprovements in the comments….

Begin with a rectangle. A 8 1/2 sheet of paper works fine.

Turn paper sideways. So that is in "landscape" position: wider than it is tall.

Fold paper into thirds, just as if you were folding up a letter to go into an envelope.
or, in other words, fold the left side over about 3 inches. Then fold the right side over top of that about 3 inches.

Now you have a nice, tall rectangle. At the top left side there will be a loose corner. Pull that corner down and to the right, then crease to create a 45 degree diagonal fold. This is the first of Yoda’s two big ears.

Now check the top right side for another loose corner. This one may be partly covered, but it is there. Pull that corner down and to the left, then crease to create a 45 degree diagonal fold. This will be the second ear.

You should now have a rectangle with triangles sticking out on each side.

Just one fold left!

Fold the top down about 2 1/2 inches. This creates Yoda’s head. Give this a strong crease to help the puppet stay together.

You are a now done! Insert a finger into the base of the puppet, which is Yoda’s robe; then wiggle him around and make him talk!
