This page is for those who want the instruction to fold an origami sun hat.


This origami sun hat starts from a regular octagon paper. If you use a larger size of paper, then you might be able to wear it.


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 hat.


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


If you find any bugs on this instruction, please send an email to HyoAhn's email.

You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami hat (*it is 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 20cm x 20cm square one.

You can easily get a regular octagon from the instruction.
