Tuffy Origami

Tuffy Origami

Hey Titans, Jillian Boyd here.

Today, we're going to show you how to turn this.

Into this.

Into your very own Tuffy Origami.

Ready to get started? Let's get folding! So the first step in our Tuffy Origami.

is we're going to take these two corners and we're going to fold them over.

and we're going to take these two corners and fold them over.

We're going to take this side and fold it over to here.

So next what we're going to do is we're going to turn our logo upside down.

We're going to take this corner and we're going to fold it down to this logo.

Then we're going to make a crease like this.

You can leave that closed.

The next part we're going to do is we're going to take this top point.

and we're going to make it parallel to our right side.

We're not going to make a full crease.

We're just going to make a little pinch mark right at that line.

We're going to open it back up, so you'll have a little pinch mark right there.

So the next thing that we're going to do.

is we're going to take each of these corners and we're going to fold them into the logo.

And we're going to make full creases on these sides.

Make sure to keep your logo upside down.

So the next thing we're going to do is we're going to take this bottom fold.

and we're going to fold it up to this pinch mark.

Like this.

And we're going to make a full crease on the bottom.

We're going to open it back up.

So now.

We'll close these and we're ready for our next steps.

Now we're going to open up our folds.

And we're going to take our bottom corner.

and lead it up to this line up here.

And we're going to make a pinch mark down here.

We're going to open it up and you have a pinch mark there.

The next step is going to take this top corner.

and lay it all the way down to this pinch mark.

We're going to make a pinch mark right in the center.

We're going to open it up and we have two pinch marks here.

So next what we're going to do is we're going to take this top corner and lead it to this lower pinch mark in the center.

We're going to make a full crease.

Then open it up.

You have two lines here.

Our next step is to take this corner.

and pull it all the way over.

To this line.

And we're going to make another full crease.

Just like that.

Then we open it up and do the same thing on the other side.

Lead it over to this crease and we'll make another one.

And we're good for now.

On to the next steps.

We're going to take this line right here and we're going to fold it up.

and this crease is going to go down – to make it reverse direction.

of when it was folded originally.

And next what we're going to do is we're going to take this top and we're going to fold it over.

We're going to take this middle fold and we're going to fold it in and flatten it out.

So it looks something like this.

Our next step is to take this corner.

and fold it down over itself so you see the brown on the orange.

Then we're going to take this corner.

and we're going to make it parallel along with the top.

Just like that.

And we're going to do the same on the other side.

So w'ere going to open it up.

we'll take this and make it parallel to the top.

You want to make sure that your points, when you make these parallel, sort of stop along this line.

And this line.

Because this is going to be the tail of your Tuffy.

So when we open these up, we're going to turn it this way.

We're going to make what is called a rabbit tail.

So you're going to take your folds now.

and you're going to pinch them like that.

And you can fold them over really easy, like this.

And you can move it to either one side or the other – it doesn't matter for now.

For our next step, we're going to take our paper.

and fold it in the middle here.

And you really want to make sure that your tail is on your right side and this point is on your left side.

And your logo is at the top.

So the next thing: we're going to take this crease and we're going to open.

this part and we're going to flatten it down.

And we're going to make creases here.

So next we're going to fold this over – just this one side We're flattening it down.

You still want to make sure your logo is straight on top.

So next we're going to take this line and we're opening up this section.

Open it up.

We're going to take our right hand and fold this part down.

Make sure that your edges are straight along this bottom line.

So once your edges are straight, you're going to flatten this part down.

And then we're going to take this section and we're going to fold it over itself.

Like this.

So once you've done this side, we're going to take our Tuffy Origami.

and we're going to turn it over on the other side.

Now this side is important, and you want to make sure your point is on your right side and your logo is still on top.

So we're going to take this edge, this crease right here, and we're going to open it up just like we did on the other side.

Just like this.

We're going to fold this over.

and make sure we have our line here.

And we're going to flatten this crease out.

Just like we did on the other side too.

We're going to take this.

and we're going to fold it on over itself.

There you go! So at this point, our origami looks more like a bird than an elephant, but don't worry, we will get there.

So your point is on your left side and the logo is still at the top.

We're going to take this section and we're going to fold it all the way over.

We're going to make a nice crease along this edge.

We're going to open it up.

I'll show you from my perspective.

We're going to put our finger in this pocket here.

and there are two folds on the inside.

we want to make sure to put our finger in both of those.

And we're going to flatten this out.

We want to give this a nice crease too.

We're flattening this.

Next what we're going to do is we're folding over this section.

Add a nice crease there.

And this part is a little tricky, so I'll try to be as clear as I can.

We're going to make a sort of a square.

So we're going to fold this section up.

And we're going to put our finger in here because it could get a little messed up if we don't have an opening there.

We're going to open this – just like that.

Make sure to keep this.

Nice and clean.

We're going to press down here.

It's a little bit easier if you make this to a point at the bottom.

We want to fold along this crease.

And you have a square.

So we're going to flip our Tuffy over.

And do the exact same thing on the other side.

We're gonna flip this square up – it'll be a square – You want to put your finger in here to make sure that it's nice and neat – so that it doesn't rip.

And we're gonna flatten our square out.

And make sure there's no creases in there.

We're gonna flatten over this section.

Just like this.

And you're ready for your next step! You're going to take this.

and we're gonna open this up.

And we're going to fold it down.

We're going to crease it here to make it like a triangle.

We're going to flip it over.

And do the same thing on the other side.

So we're gonna open this square up.

And we're gonna flatten it out again.

For our next section, we want to make sure our logo is at the top.

and this color piece of paper is at the bottom right hand corner.

And these two flaps are on your left.

So we're gonna lift this section up.

to the crease.

Make sure to flatten it.

And this next section is pretty tricky, so I'll try to go as slow and as clearly as I can.

Right here, we're gonna lift this section.

and we're gonna put this line.

along this line.

So that it makes one straight line.

We're gonna flatten it out.

So it looks like this.

Our next section is pretty tricky: we're gonna bisect this flattened angle here.

I'm gonna lift this out.

Like this.

And I'm gonna flip the directions that it's going.

It's good to put your finger right here so that it doesn't rip or mess up.

We're gonna bisect this angle.

to make a square.

It's going to be an ear.

So next what we're going to do.

is we're gonna flip it over on the other side.

We're going to do the same thing like we did on the other side.

So we want to make sure colored corner is on our bottom left hand side.

And we're gonna lift this section up.

We're gonna flatten it and crease it out.

So we're gonna make this.

this line.

Touch this line like we did on the other side.

Fold it over.

Flatten this out.

For this section, we're gonna lift this part out.

and we're gonna reverse the directions of these folds.

Like this.

This part is a little tricky, so you want to flatten it out and just be patient.

There you go! You have two ears on each side that are out.

Our next step is to take to take the trunk.

and fold it along this line.

We're gonna fold it up.

This will be Tuffy's trunk.

We're gonna pinch it.

Make sure there's a nice line there.

Then you can take this part of his trunk and fold it this way.

And we make his trunk like that! Then you can open him up.

We're going to take his head.

open it.

and do that bunny fold like we did in the very beginning.

We're gonna pinch right here.

You can redo this little trunk part.

And you can do another bunny fold.

in the middle.

So that it looks something like that.

Our next step is to fold his head in.

We're gonna fold it just a little bit.

We're going to do it on this side, just like that.

Then flip him over.

And we're going to do it on this side.

Pinch that real good.

We're almost done! So what we have next is you're gonna need a really skinny pen or pencil for this next section.

And we're gonna use it to fold his ears down.

We're going to curl his ears along this piece.

Just like that! So it creates a nice little bend in his ear.

Then you flip him over.

We're going to do the same thing to this side of his ear.

We're curling along this side.

So it looks something like that.

So we now have Tuffy on this side – and his ears are all curled and his trunk is done.

And this is where we're going to have Tuffy stand.

We're going to take his legs and bend them at sort of a 45 degree angle.

And we're going to pinch his legs in.

We want to make it straight with this side.

So that he stands up.

Pinch this side.

Flip him over.

Same on the other side.

We really want to make sure his legs are straight.

Or else he's going to stand crooked.

One of our last steps — his ears are done, his trunk is done and his legs are pretty much done — we're going to open up the back — and there's his tail — and we're going to fold him open.

And this part is basically make sure he stands up right again.

And we fold his legs on inside.

Press down right here and along this straight line.

We're going to take this other side and we're going to do the same to his other leg.

We're gonna both of his legs and his tail — and fold them in.

Our final steps: we're going to open the back end of Tuffy.

we're gonna take these two brown corners.

we're taking them and fold them inside — like this.

Once you've done that – open them up – and bunny ear them like you did earlier.

A pinch there.

Same on this side.

We're going to fold them on back.

Right now you can give Tuffy's tail some dimensions, like that.

It also helps to close the back The last part we're going to do for Tuffy's back is.

we're going to fold this section of brown paper.

inside — like this.

You want to make sure you can pop these.

You can pinch this section.

Just like that.

So you can make sure Tuffy can stand up.

What we're going to do with the logo here – as you can see, you can't really see the logo — we're gonna open the top end of Tuffy up.

So make sure you hold Tuffy at his shoulder or underneath his trunk because that part tends to rip.

This part is kinda tricky.

You're going to put your finger on the inside and you're going to push down and work it out with your fingers.

This part may take some practice.

You can pinch these corners right here.

to make sure the logo is nice and flat.

Still making sure we don't rip his trunk area.

So now what we're going to do — we're pretty much done with our Tuffy — his tail is out, he can stand, ears are nice and curled, and we can see the logo.

We're just gonna bend his legs a little bit to give him some muscles 'cause the new Tuffy is pretty muscular.

So our Tuffy Origami should be muscular too.

And we're done! Tuffy is looking good.

He's got a flat logo on his back and he's really three-dimensional and he stands up.

So thanks for watching and if you like you can upload your Tuffy pictures and.
