With just a few more days for Easter, I just thought I’d make a 3 dimensional origami Easter Egg.

Glimpse of the Result: ## How To make an Origami Egg:

Step 1:

You will need a total of 287 triangular units for this egg. As you can see, I’ve made it using two colors – white and pink. So for a similar pattern, 231 units of white and 56 units of pink would be required.

You can see the tutorial on how to make the triangular units here. Step 2:

We will start by making Row 1 and Row  2 using white paper triangles. Make connector units as shown. Step 3:

Keep adding till you have 8 units in each row.

At this point, we have consumed 16 units ( 8 X 2). Step 4:

Add Row 3. This row would again have 8 units of white. Step 5:

The next row, Row 4 would have 12 units of pink paper. Step 6:

Start assembling Row 5. Row 5 would use up a total of  12 white units. This is quite a sturdy model and does not need any glue to be used.

Step 7:

Keep adding rows 6 to 9. We will gradually increase the number of units in each row.

Row 6 = 18 white units

Row 7 = 18 white units

Row 8 = 18 pink units

Row 9 = 27 white units. Step 8:

Now add Rows 10 and 11. Each of these rows would have 27 triangular units of white paper. Step 9:

We will now gradually reduce the number of units to get the egg shape.

Add Row 12, a row of pink in the manner shown below. You will be using a 14 units of pink for this row. Step 10:

Now add 3 rows of white.

Row 13, 14 and 15 – these three rows will have 18 white units each. Step 11:

Next step is to add Row 16 which consists of 12 units of pink. Step 12:

The last two rows, Row 17 and Row 18 will be added with 12 white units in each row. Here is the cool Easter egg made out of paper!
