Artist Yoyo Ferro’s [2] latest work appeals to Star Wars [3] and origami [4] fans alike! Using teeny tiny pieces of paper, the artist has made an origami Yoda, complete with wrinkled green face, orange robe and staff. The origami master [5] based this awesome Yoda on an original design by Fumiaki Kawahata. To see how these paper renditions of Yoda are made, check out the video after the jump!

The miniature Yoda is made from one small folded sheet of orange tissue paper [8] glued to one sheet of metallic foil paper, and green construction paper for the face and body. The Jedi master comes to life with the fold of an extended hand, and layers that make up Yoda’s furrowed brow and tired face.
