Folding this model is just about the best activity for killing time on the airplane! This picture shows it with 11 stages (left) and 7 stages (right), just to show you how they compare.
Trivia: The creases are about 3mm apart in the orange, 11-stage version. In the green, 7-stage version the creases are about 5mm apart.
Paper size: 19.5cm transparent paper (approx. 7.5in)
Model size: 8.5cm x 8.5cm x 1cm (approx. 3.3in x 3.3in x 0.4in)
At the CDO Convention 2009, I taught this apple by Shuzo Fujimoto. I'm pleased to say that it took us less time than expected (only half an hour), and everyone had a nicely folded model in the end. The bigger, orange apple is the one I folded to display which model I'd be teaching, and the smaller, red one shows the paper we used during the session.
