A laser paper blaster for the 5-minute origami Stormtrooper. This blaster riffle is designed to fit exactly my origami Stormtrooper model. The Stormtrooper can easily hold the blaster, no glue (and no Force) required.
To fold the blaster, you need a small rectangle of paper. The rectangle is an half square, 1/8 the size of the square you use for the Stormtrooper. So if you use 20x20 paper for the Stormtrooper, you need to use 10x5 for the blaster.
To make a Stormtrooper Blaster in origami, please follow the instructions from this video on YouTube:
Here are the step-by-step instructions to fold a Stormtrooper Blaster (photo diagram and/or video).
1. Start with a small half square.
2. If there is only one colored side, put it under.
3. Fold horizontally and unfold.
4. Fold the top and the bottom towards the horizontal axis.
5. Fold the top on the bottom.
6. Make a fold to create the handle.
7. Unfold, open the model and inverse the fold to put it inside.
8. Open the model and make a crimp: a valley fold and a mountain fold next to it.
9. Close the model.
10. Fold the right part in two horizontally, flatten the fold at the left.
11. Turn the model to the other side and make a similar fold. Your Stormtrooper Blaster is complete.
12. The Stormtrooper has an upward tip that you can put inside the blaster to maintain it in position. Fold the Stormtrooper's hand on top of the handle.
13. If you started to fold the blaster but don't have a Stormtrooper yet, it's time to fold it. It's easy and takes only 5 minutes.
14. Then you can also fold the 5-minute origami Darth Vader.
15. And the 5-minute origami Yoda.
Stormtroopers are mostly helpless without their blaster, so make sure you fold one for your origami Stormtrooper!
