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!

  1. Hi!

    Loved this. My son had a Star Wars Landspeeder as a child. Now his son Nate is enjoying it. It looks just like your oragami landspeeder. Perfect! Alice Gardner

    It’s great to see origami featured here. My mother used to give origami lessons to children when she visited us from NY — her lacquered origami animal and other pins are at Dress Code now.
