Origami Water Bomb Step by Step Instructions
Learn how to fold what I think is the coolest origami model ever, the traditional origami water bomb! This cube shaped origami model is not a box, instead it is inflated by blowing into it!
You can use this awesome model in many ways, draw a face onto it and stick some ears on, hang them up as a pretty paper garland, you can even use these to cover Christmas lights, make small ones and use them as beads for handmade jewellery.
You will need one sheet of square paper for this, I suggest starting... with paper that is at least 15 x 15 cm or larger. You can make smaller ones later :)Continue to 2 of 6 below.
