Difficulty: Hard (do not attempt unless you know how to do squash folds and inverse folds)
NOTE: This one is difficult due to the amount of independent experimentation required of the folder. The folds that form the head and tail are simply too intricate to to include in the printed instructions. Therefore, it is up to the folder to play with it until satisfactory.
Fold 1 to 1, crease, and unfold.
Fold 2 to 2, crease, and unfold.
Fold 3 to 3, crease, and unfold.
Fold 4 to 4, crease, and unfold.
Fold 5a to 5a, 5b to 5b, and 5c to 5c. This should produce a three-dimensional result.
Fold 6a to 6a and 6b to 6b, crease, and unfold.
Fold 7a to 7a and 7b to 7b, crease, and unfold.
This last step is the trickiest step: To create the hoop, fold one of the "wings" into the other (they are both double-layered) until they stay on their own.
This fold may be used as a target for the origami catapult (see June 2 blog).
My 8 March 2013 blog about origami prompted me to launch a second blog, one dedicated solely to origami. This way, as I complete instructional sheets, I can post them directly to this blog and it will not interfere with my Beatles blog.
