Origami Pig instructions and tutorial

This cute origami pig made with origami cubes looks as it just escaped Minecraft! And it did escape Minecraft, as it was first designed inside Minecraft by my son Martin, and then we made a real life version of with origami cubes.

Once you make your origami pig, you can then play with it, as we did in this small stop-motion video!


To make the origami cubes pig, you need 1 black square of paper, and 9 pink squares of origami paper.


First fold all 26 origami cubes and make a lot of clips.

Then start by making two 3x3 squares with 9 cubes each, with one of the square with the black cubes in the corner. Join the squares, then add the ears, node, tail, and finish with the legs.

Please share this Pig with your friends!

Here are the step-by-step instructions to fold a Pig (photo diagram and/or video).

Pig - step 1

1. The origami pig was first designed using Minecraft. Minecraft makes experimenting with origami cubes design very quick and easy, but of course you can do the same thing by drawing, or with Lego bricks.

Pig - step 2

2. All the cubes for the pigs, with the clips.

Pig - step 3
