A trip WAY down memory lane…. 1,000 Origami Yodas

From BEFORE Origami Yoda was published!!!!!!

To promote “The Strange Case of Origami Yoda,” I recently folded 1,000 of the simple, finger-puppet style Yodas. Here are a few:

And a few more:

And a few more:

But there’s still only one like the one on the cover of the book.

I’d like to fold another, but I’m not sure how to do it. So the question is, should I unfold the one I’ve got in the hopes that I’ll be able to refold it and figure it out — at the risk of losing it forever?


As you know, I decided NOT to unfold it! (And don’t try to talk me into it!)

PLEASE UNFOLD with a origami jar jar binks on top? PLEASE! (I would probably cry of happiness if you did. You can also record yourself unfold by unfold and play the video backwards

I think that you should crease it more, than unfold it to make sure he can refold it.

What you need is an origami master to examine it…

I remember SEEING this when you first put it up… A bit after OY was released? I got it the December it came out… It’s good to see this. :)

I’d unfold the cover Yoda Tom. Two reasons: 1. Some super folders will haunt you if you don’t. 2. You still have the creases to fold along, right?

He showed a bid of inside it and there are many matching instrux on the site. He said not o talk him into it.

It doesn’t work like that. I know this for a fact, unfolding and re folding only works when it’s a sime design. When it’s this complex, too many crinkles get in the way, and certain folds that ur not familiar with may not go back right.

Yes, thanks for explaining that. If Yoda didn’t go back together, even if one part just got messed up, then I’d be in trouble!

  SF Grant wrote @
