Ender’s Game Origami: The Little Yellow Ship

Learn how to fold this little yellow ship from the Ender’s Game book cover below (after the jump)!

First a few tips:
1. This is an intermediate level origami, if you’re a beginner and want some help tell us in the comments!

2. Make sure you crease every fold as neatly as possible with a coin, popsicle stick or something similar.

3. It’s ok to use one-sided color paper!

4. If you complete the design show us on Facebook!

5. When you’re done you can use it as a Christmas ornament, zipper pull or make a handful and put together a baby mobile. The possibilities are endless!

    Very cool! I just wish I wasn’t so terrible at origami.

      HA! I’m pretty sure we establish on a thread in Milagre that we’re nerds and not geeks.

    I’m confused…I still don’t quite get the last part with the glueing. I tried to do it, and it didn’t look like it turned out right. Help?

      Glue the smallest fold adjacent to the larger part to the larger part so it sticks down. No use the flap on the side and the flap on the middle to make a triangle, Glue that so the triangle shape stays in place.

        Thank you very much, I was making them for a school project because I read Ender’s Game (which went well), and fortunately I somehow figured out what the instructions were saying in time! Thank you so much for making this site.
