This page is for those who want the instruction to fold an origami boat, large sampan.


The large sampan boat is based on Fish Base and it is larger than the traditional sampan by about 40%.


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 large sampan.

You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami large sampan. 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 one-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.
