Origami Flapping Bird Instructions Page 3

Step 17 Step 17: Like before, fold the right flap over to the left and you should have this shape.
Step 18 Step 18: Take the bottom corner of the top layer and fold it up.
Step 19 Step 19: Turn the figure over.
Step 20 Step 20: Also fold this bottom flap up. Now we have a triangle shaped figure.
Step 21Step 21-2 Step 21: Take the two wedges inside and pull them out like you see in the picture.

After pulling them out, crease the base below so the wedges will stay in that position.
Step 22Step 22-2 Step 14: Take the left wedge and open it slightly so you can bend a portion of it down to form the head.

Now do an inside reverse fold by pushing the center of the head down and creasing the left and right sides together. The head will now remain folded in that position.
Step 23 Step 23: Here's the tricky part. Hold the chest of the bird including a little bit of the wing, and fold the rest of the wing down. You don't need a sharp fold here, just keep molding the wing until it stays down, but at the same time curved around your thumb at the front.

Basically, do what you see in the picture.
Step 24 Step 24: Once the wing can remain in that position, pull the tail and the bird will come alive!
