How to Make a Paper Frog

This paper frog is an exceptional piece of origami. What separates this model from most others is the ability to blow into it and make it puffy. Frogs do have a puffy body after all compared to their dainty little limbs. You'll have fun folding this and have even more fun seeing the reactions of other people.

It's not hard to learn how to make a paper frog such as this one. There are quite a few folds, but also lots of repeating folds. You should have no problem making this if you follow the instructions and pictures carefully. If you like the paper frog, you may also like the origami jumping frog.
