How To Make An Origami Hat: Step-By-Step Instructions
1. Folding the Printer Paper Vertically
Place a full sheet of printer paper in front of you. Fold the paper in half vertically, then open it back up. Use the dotted line in the reference image as a guide.
2. Folding the Paper Horizontally
Take the top of the paper and fold it in half horizontally to meet the bottom edge, as shown in the reference image.
3. Folding the Top Corners
With your paper still folded, take both the top left and right corners and fold them down over the dotted lines as shown above. Almost like you are making the front of a paper airplane. Once you are done you should be left with something that almost resembles a house.
4. Folding the Front Flap Upward
Take the front flap of the two flaps at the bottom and fold it up over the dotted line as shown above. You are not folding it over the two folds you just made yet. This new fold should align with the bottom of the previous fold.
5. Examining the Folded Shape
At this point, your folded paper should resemble the shape shown in the reference image.
6. Folding the Front Flap Over the Previous Folds
Once again take that same flap but this time fold it up and over the folds, you made in step 3 as shown above. So the two flaps you made in step 3 should now be under this fold you just made.
7. Repeating Steps on the Opposite Side
Turn the paper over and repeat steps 4 to 6 on the other side. The folds should align with each other once completed.
8. Opening the Origami Hat
Gently open the hat by pulling outward on the pocket you’ve created. Optionally, fold the corners of the white strip in the reference image inwards to give the hat a smoother shape. This step is not necessary but adds a polished appearance.
9. Admiring the Final Origami Hat
Congratulations! You have successfully completed your origami hat. Take a moment to admire your handiwork and consider making more hats to share with friends and family.
