Preparation of an origami paper
a 26x26cm paper or it is bigger than 26cm.
・Basic origami paper
・Double sided origami paper
I drew a line at 0.1cm from the top edge so that the vertical length is changed to 25.9cm.
After drawing a line, cut the paper along the line that you have drawn.
After cutting the paper, draw lines like this picture.
“a” is two seventh of the length.
“b” is one seventh of the length.
(If you use a rectangular paper, the length is a long side of your paper.)
If the length is 25.9cm,
“a” is 25.9÷7×2＝7.4cm
“b” is 25.9÷7＝3.7cm
If the length is 24.5cm,
“a” is 24.5÷7×2＝7cm
“b” is 24.5÷7＝3.5cm
After drawing lines, cut the paper on the blue line.
Cut the paper like this picture.
Next steps are making creases at the blue lines.
Fold the bottom to each line that you have drawn.
Fold the bottom to the third line from the top like this picture.
Fold the bottom to the second line from the top like this picture.
Fold the bottom to the first line from the top like this picture.
Then rotate the paper 180 degrees.
Fold the bottom to the first crease and third crease from the top.
Fold the bottom to the first crease from the top like this picture.
Fold the bottom to the third crease from the top like this picture.
Then fold the bottom to the crease that you have made in the previous step.
Fold the bottom like this picture.
After spreading the paper, it looks like this picture.
Preparing an origami paper is completed!
