Diagram of Ippento


What is Ippento?

“一辺倒/Ippento” is an original Renzuru model of this site – “Tsuru-no-Goshiki”.

Renzuru means connected-cranes which are made of only one paper without glue and tape.

Preparation of an origami paper


a 26x26cm paper or it is bigger than 26cm.

・Basic origami paper
・Double sided origami paper
・Washi paper

Draw lines like this picture.
(Divide the paper in five horizontally.)

If you use a 26x26cm paper, the side of each square is 5.2cm.

After drawing lines, cut the paper on the blue line.

After cutting the paper, it looks like this picture.

Turn the paper over and make creases along the lines that you have drawn.

Make a crease along the line that you have drawn like this picture.

Then make creases along the three other lines that you have drawn as well.

After making creases along the four lines that you have drawn, 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 yellow square.

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

Cut a paper

Cut your paper after making creases!

The diagram of Ippento

Cut the paper while referencing the diagram.

This is an enlarged picture.

I used a 26x26cm paper.
I left about 2mm for the length of the connecting part.

Make sure the direction of each crane

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

Preparing a paper for Ippento is finished!

Make this model carefully while making sure the direction of each crane!

I recommend that you angle a head and tail of each crane to the outside.
By angling them, this model will be more beautiful.

After making all cranes, make beaks at connecting parts.
(make a beak of the rightmost crane so that the crane face in the same direction as other cranes.)
