This video demonstrates how to fold an Origami Magic Ball designed by Kade Chan. This is one of the most well known origami models on YouTube, however not many of the tutorials went into great detail on how to fold each part. This video will explain each part of the Magic Ball in a very detailed manner. I hope you enjoy the videos, and if you have any questions about the magic ball, please comment below or send me a message! Thanks for watching!
Videos uploaded of your completed magic ball are greatly appreciated!
Also, special thanks to Kade Chan for giving me permission to create this video!

Q: Can I use A4 (printer paper) to fold the magic ball?
A: Yes, but you will have to cut it (since A4 has the dimensions of 8.5" x 11", which is not 1:2 ratio). To make the largest rectangle from a sheet of A4, cut the paper to the dimensions of 11" x 5.5." If this is your first time folding the magic ball, however, I would not recommend using paper this size. See the next question for information on how to purchase larger paper.
Q: I do not have paper that is 20cm x 40cm or larger. Where can I purchase such large paper?
A: Kraft paper is a cheap type of paper that typically comes in large rolls. It can be purchased in practically any office or arts and crafts store, and it is relatively inexpensive. Some popular stores which sell kraft paper include: OfficeMax, Staples, etc. You can also order kraft paper online from many websites such as www.dickblick.com, www.origami-shop.com, etc.
