Follow the steps below to make this Easy Origami Bird.
Origami birds with wings are usually more complex than this, but this bird is very easy to fold. It only takes a few simple steps and the result is almost as awesome as the more complex ones. This bird can also pass for a pigeon or dove.
|Step 1: Start with a square piece of origami paper. If you only have regular 8.5x11 paper, follow these instructions to make a square sheet. You can also use these colorful Printable Origami Paper.|
|Step 2: Fold the paper in half by folding the top corner to the bottom corner. You should have an upside down triangle.|
|Step 3: Fold part of the top down so that the edge is about halfway down. Don't make this flap too thin because this will become the wings.|
|Step 4: Turn the paper over.|
|Step 5: Take the bottom corner of the top layer and fold it up like this.|
|Step 6: Fold the figure in half by folding the left side over to the right.|
|Step 7: Now fold that same flap back like this to make one of the wings.|
|Step 8: Fold the other wing back also.|
|Step 9: Push the center of the head in and flatten. This is called an inside reverse fold.|
|Step 10: And tada! You have yourself a bird. Now set it free! Just kidding. Don't throw it in the air. It will just fall down and you'll be disappointed.
