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


This origami candle is a 2D model.

You will start from a 4x4 matrix base. One difficulty in this model is you need to apply a crease pattern to make a candle light.


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 candle.

You may use any kind of paper to fold this origami candle. I am using a typical single sided yellow color origami paper here. The dimension of the paper is a square of 15cm x 15cm. 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.
