World Origami Days: Star Wars Origami

I promised to post on origami each day of the remaining World Origami Days (until Nov. 11). I’ll try to include a variety of themes and styles, to keep it interesting and informative.  There is a lot more to origami than just birds and paper airplanes! Here’s a small sample of what happens when you mix origami with Star Wars fandom. It’s an origami landspeeder!

I folded this from diagrams in the book by Chris Alexander, which I got as a birthday present from the people who work in our parish offices – my thanks to them all!

There’s actually quite a lot of Star Wars origami out there, ranging from the fairly simple (like many models in this book) to the highly complex, as you can see on the Starwarigami website.

Next up: abstract origami tessellations!
