This page is for those who want the instruction to fold a new origami sampan boat.


This new origami sampan boat is easier to fold compared to the traditional sampan boat. It is free from the special folding technique called "locking fold". I think it is a better looking interior of boat too.


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 this boat.

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 20cm x 20cm square one. 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.
