DIY | ‘Bipyramid’ Tutorial

The shape of this geometric origami is called ‘Triangular Bipyramid’. I am obsessed with these little bipyramids! The origami itself is the easiest to make but the uses are so much funner! To remember this name is actually straight forward. Bipyramid means two pyramid shapes mirrored back to back, and this pyramid has triangular sides, so there you go!

Cut a strip of paper with an even width. The width and length should be at least 1:4 or 1:6.
I just cut a rough length that looks long enough and adjust the final length as I make it.

 Fold a small triangle on one end
 Fold backward at the end of the triangle and repeat fold like an accordion.
Fold the straight lines between the diagonals again to change the fold direction
 Form the ‘Triangular Bipyramid’ by rolling the shape along.
 Wrap around the faces a couple of times to form a solid shape, trim off the end triangle and insert the final triangle part into a slit to close it up.
