|This page is for those who want the instructions to apply a gate-fold in origami. |
Gate-fold is two "valley-folds" applied to a square paper. The name "Gate" is used for this folding technique since its action is similar to closing a gate.
There are two different gate-folds: one is horizontal gate-fold and the other one is vertical gate-fold. They are actually the same technique since the difference is only 90° rotation between two.
The instruction is shown below. Just click on "Ascend" button. You will be given a step-by-step guide how to apply a fold. If you miss a step, then just click on "Descend" button to go back to the previous step.
