Use these step-by-step instructions to fold your very own Star Wars X-Wing ship.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
One square sheet of origami paper (the larger the sheet, the easier it will be to fold)
WHAT YOU’LL DO
Step 1: Start with the color side up. Fold diagonally both ways. Unfold.
Step 2: Flip paper over. Fold in half side to side. Unfold.
Step 3: Fold in half, top to bottom.
Step 4: Squash fold both sides. (Hold top corners, and pull down and inward.)
Step 5: Pull up center crease.
Step 6: Your paper should now look like this.
Step 7: Fold and unfold right panel.
Step 8: Squash and flatten.
Step 9: Fold right panel to the left.
Step 10: Slightly open flap to the right and squash and flatten.
Step 11: Flip over.
Step 12: Repeat steps 7-10 on back two panels.
Step 13: Fold toward center. Unfold.
Step 14: Pull up on center and fold up as sides come in. Flatten.
Step 15: Repeat steps 13-14 on all four sides.
Step 16: On two opposing sides, fold down point as shown.
Step 17: On a side with point up, inside reverse fold the legs out to make two wings. Repeat on opposite side to make two more wings.
Step 18: Fold the right edge to the center. As you are folding the right edge, the bottom edges should fold together.
Step 19: You fold should look like this once flattened. Repeat step 18 on all sides.
Step 20: Once all sides are complete, take the right side and fold over to the left. Repeat on back.
Step 21: The bottom triangle flap should no longer have a split in the middle.
Step 22: Fold the bottom triangle flap up toward the middle. Repeat on back.
Step 23: Inside reverse fold the tips up. Repeat on the other side. You’ll have a total of four to complete.
Step 24: Fold the right panel over to the left. Repeat on other side.
