First Post

  Welcome to That is Japanese for awesome fold. I hope that you find my folds awesome! I also hope you like Star Wars, because a lot of my folds are Star Wars.
  I know that the first blog post should be longer than thirty-three words, so I'm just going to put a link to my favorite origami (Star Wars) site,, and instructions on how to fold an Imperial Star Destroyer.

Origami Info
Proportions: 1/2 horizontally or 1/4 sheet 8"-11" paper
Colors: Light gray/Light gray
Flyable: No
Standable: Yes
Highlight: Bridge
Pocketable: Yes

First you want to decide if you want a Star Destroyer or a Super Star Destroyer. The steps are the same, it's just a size difference.
Next fold in half and into thirds and unfold. It should look like this.
Next fold the bottom like a paper airplane, but leave a gap.
I like to call this Darth Paper Step One, after Tom Angleberger's fold featured in book two of the Origami Yoda series.
Next fold up like this.
Flip it over and fold side over.
Now unfold and fold corner along the crease.
Fold back in and repeat steps on other side.
Fold side.
Now fold the back corner.
Repeat on other side and flip over.
Fold back halfway...
Now fold down halfway...
Crease in half...
It's a Star Destroyer!
If you cut the paper lengthwise instead and fold it differently in the back it also turns into the Invisible Hand.
Thanks to my friend Jensen who basically took my random piece of folded paper, gave it to me and let me tweak it. I should really give him credit for, like, 97 percent of it.
