How to make a Paper Boat

Today I was looking for a picture of a paper boat to illustrate my graduation project, and I realised I didn’t actually know how to make one. Inspired by the non-relenting popularity of my post about origami flowers from years back, here’s how to make a paper boat. Happy folding!


How to make Origami Flowers

Just a bit of fun: since I mentioned “Origami Flower” once, the search term most used to find my blog is just that. I find it quite intriguing and can imagine that people who want to start making origami flowers, are not that interested in my university projects.

So here goes: a guide that tells you how to fold an Origami Flower. For those of you who do not speak Italian, you don’t really need the text. Just remember that a dotted line is a fold, when it’s irregular it folds towards you (like a mountain), if its a regular dotted line it folds away (like a valley).

Guide to folding a four-petal origami flower

Use paper that is different on both sides, like in the picture, for a nice effect. If you make a few and stick them on cocktail sticks, using masking tape or colored tape, you can make a bouquet!

Have fun… 😉

And if you are interested in my projects at Eindhoven Technical University, take a look around on my blog and see what I’m up to these days!
