Preparation of an origami paper

Recommendation

【Size】
a 26x26cm paper or it is bigger than 26cm.

【Kinds】
・Basic origami paper
・Double sided origami paper
・Washi paper


Draw lines like this picture.
(Divide the paper in five and try not to draw lines in the center.)

If you use a 26x26cm paper, the side of each square is 5.2cm.
(26÷5=5.2cm)

After drawing lines, make creases along the lines that you have drawn.

After making creases, it looks like this picture.

Preparing an origami paper is Completed!

Make creases

Make basic-creases, which are the green lines and the blue lines in this picture, on each square in the paper.

Make basic-creases in each orange square.

This picture is taken after making basic-creases in each orange square.

Please make sure whether there are the creases, which are the green lines and the blue lines in the 2 pictures ago, in each orange square.

Cut a paper

Cut your paper after making creases!

<reference>『Hiden-Senbazuru-Orikata』- was published in 1797

If you make this model while folding a paper along the dotted lines, it will get harder to make it.
Therefore, cut the paper on the dotted lines as well.

The yellow lines show the center lines of a big square.

Cut the paper so that only the left side or the right side of a small square is connected to a big square.
In this picture, the parts which are shown by the arrows are connected to a big square.

I used a 26x26cm paper.
I left about 5mm for the length of the connecting part.

When cutting a paper so that the left side of a small square is connected to a big square, Cut the paper like this picture.

When cutting a paper so that the right side of a small square is connected to a big square, Cut the paper like this picture.

Make sure the direction of each crane

Make cranes so that the orange lines are changed to wings.


After making sure the direction of each crane, make the model – Huran.

In the next pages, there is how to make the model.
If you try to make it by yourself, I recommend that you don’t look at the next page!
