Foldigami Friday, Week 9: Special Edition

Hey, everyone! It’s the day before Halloween, and I’ve got something special for you! Now, keep in mind that this project requires a few MORE materials than usual:

  • A working pen
  • A working pencil
  • Colored pencils, markers, or crayons (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Paper (colored or plain–doesn’t matter, especially if you are coloring it)

Let’s start! The paper chain won’t be kept waiting!

Start by folding your paper in half.

Next, fold it into thirds. You can do more folds to make a longer chain, but the design will be smaller (unless you use a larger sheet of paper).

Draw your design IN PENCIL FIRST. You don’t want to use pen or marker and mess up, or it’ll look horrible. I know mine does even though I used a pencil because I’m the world’s worst drawer, but please bear with it until the end.

Next, cut out the design carefully using scissors. Remember, damaging the top is hurting the rest as well, so try not to cut off the lines. Also, since the paper is folded, it is harder to cut (especially if you’re using construction paper like I was).

Once you cut it out, it should look like a folded string of linked design. Try to draw a different face on each one, then outline with pen. Take note to do it all on ONE side, preferably the side you drew the first one on (the base design).

In the end the string should look something like this. I have all of the materials in the picture as well, you can see my laptop at the top and my (very old and slow) iPad 2 on the left side. Take note that if you have enough room, you can use the scraps of paper for other designs as well.
