The Traditional Origami Sailboat is an elegant model that is simple to make. This design is not 3D, so unlike the Sampan, I posted instructions for recently, it won’t float. Like most traditional origami, it can be folded out of just about any paper, although it looks best made from paper that is coloured differently on each side. I have used Kami coloured on one side for the model pictured because I like the white sails against the coloured hull of the boat. The Traditional Sailboat is used as the logo for OrigamiUSA.
Paper: Any, best if it is a different colour on each side
Time to fold: Less than five minutes
