Step 1: Gather Tools

Fold Paper in half (hamburger style), then into three. You should have six equally sized segments.

You only need one segment to make your origami yoda, but if you mess up you've got extras.

Step 9: Tricky Part: Invert Each Triangle So That They're on the Inside of the 2 Cm Fold
Step 10: Turn Paper Over
Step 11: Use Ruler and Pencil to Mark 1 Inch From Bottom
Step 12: Fold Back Along the 1 Inch Line
