Short summary
The problem of inverse folding, determining the distribution of creases according to the desired shape, requires luck and artist inspiration, and it is a very complicated process. Here, we try to solve an inverse folding problem about a folding toy and get some kirigami patterns. It opens up a new way to solve the problem and can also help students understand the theory of mechanisms and machines.
