This page is for those who want the instruction to fold an inflatable origami boat.


Inflatable origami boat requires you to learn both gate-fold and inside reverse fold. Other than that, it is a simple boat to fold with.


Before working on this model, you need to know what valley-fold and mountain-fold are. If you know these two folding techniques, then you will have no problem in making origami boat.


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

You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami boat. 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 a typical two-side color origami paper with 15cm x 15cm square dimension. 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.
