The origami panda body is the second part of the origami panda figure. The origami panda head is required to complete the figure.
I decided to design this origami panda body because I wanted something cute to match the adorable face. This body puts the panda in a seated position with its arms extended, kind of like a cub raising his head from the ground to see what its siblings are up to.
This origami panda body is not difficult, but there are a few folding and unfolding steps, and one awkward fold that comes with very clear instructions. Overall, this is pretty easy and shouldn't take too long.
|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 upper left corner to the bottom right corner, then unfold.|
|Step 3: Fold upper right corner to the bottom left corner, then unfold.|
|Step 4: Fold the top half backwards (at where the diagonal creases meet at an "X"), then unfold.|
|Step 5: Poke the center of the paper so that it pops in.|
|Step 6: Bring the left and right creases together to collapse the paper into a triangle.
