This page is for those who want the instruction to fold a 2D origami ball.


This 2D origami ball starts with a 8x8 matrix base. The special folding techniques that you need to learn for this model are inside reverse-fold, open sink-fold, balloon-fold, petal-fold.


If you are ready, then let's get started.


If you find any bugs on this instruction, please send an email to HyoAhn's email.


You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami ball. It is a little easier if the front and the back side of the paper are slightly different whether it be in texture or color.

Make sure the paper that you use is a square (all sides are equal and all the angles equal 90 degrees). The paper I am using here is 15cm x 15cm square origami paper. It is a good size for those who are not experienced in paper folding. If you are become familiar with this model. Then you can try smaller size paper.
