How to make an origami Slinky
Designed by Jo Nakashima

Video now available in more languages:

◆ Difficulty level: simple

◆ My paper:
8cm x 8cm copy paper (72 sheets)
You can make as many units as you want. 50 units should work, but I recommend 70-80 units

Would it work with fewer units? In the video below I compare different sizes:

HINT: the gap at 1:24 is important! And it must be really small, the edges should almost touch the center line
If you leave no gap the connection will be stronger, but harder to make. if the gap is too big, the connection will be loose and it will fall apart easily
