How to Make a Paper Fish
You are about to learn how to make a paper fish that's super cool. What makes this one so cool? Well, besides looking like an actual fish, it's sort of three dimensional because there are fins on both sides and underneath its head are layers of gills. You can't tell by the picture, but once you finish folding it you'll see what I mean.
There is an easy origami fish that you can fold if you find this one to be a tad on the hard side. However, if you follow the pictures and instructions carefully you should have no problems at all.
|Step 1: Start with a square piece of origami paper. If you only have regular 8.5x11 paper, follow these instructions to make it into a square sheet.|
|Step 2: Fold the paper in half by folding the left corner to the right corner.|
|Step 3: Fold in half again by folding the top corner to the bottom corner.|
|Step 4: Fold the left corner to the right edge as shown, then unfold.|
|Step 5: Fold the upper layer diagonally as shown. Make sure to leave a portion of the right corner unfolded.|
|Step 6: Turn the figure over vertically. The lower left corner of the triangle you touch the crease in the center of the flap. Make adjustments if necessary.|
|Step 7: Fold parts of the triangle down over the lower flap. Your figure should look like this.
