If you're here to learn how to make a paper swan, you won't be dissappointed. This swan is just beautiful thanks to its recognizable and graceful form. This also isn't just a one dimensional origami where it only looks like a swan on one side, but it's figure is complete all around no matter what angle it's viewed from.
The paper swan isn't the easiest to fold, because there are a couple of tricky folds to it. However, if you follow the instructions carefully, there shouldn't be much trouble and I've included very detailed step by step pictures to help you.
|Step 1: Start with a square piece of paper paper. If you only have regular 8.5x11 paper, follow these instructions to make a square sheet.|
|Step 2: Fold the top corner down to the bottom corner.|
|Step 3: Fold the left corner to the right.|
|Step 4: Open the top layer and squash it down like you see in the picture.|
|Step 5: Turn the paper over so we can squash that side as well.|
|Step 6: Open the left flap and squash down.
Your paper should look like the 3rd picture in this step
|Step 7: Take the left and right corners of the top layer and fold it to the center.|
|Step 8: Fold the top triangle down.
