How to make an origami sailboat
This design is taken from an album of a Japanese author, long practiced in the art of origami. The model is quite simple, yet elegant.
- Sheet of paper.
- Ruler and scissors.
Take a square sheet of paper and fold it diagonally.
Fold the two corners along the center line.
Now fold the bottom corner, and attach it to the upper corner, mark a horizontal line.
Fold again its two lateral sides, along the vertical centerline.
Bend the side with an obtuse angle into 90 degrees from the horizontal sheet.
You may also slightly bend the vertical section on the side of the figure to make the sail of the sailboat.
- This is the simplest design that allows plenty of room for improvement. However it takes imagination to master.
