I will show you how to make an origami swan.

Step 1:

You start out with a square piece of paper and fold it along one diagonal, Then unfold it.

Step 2:

Now fold the lower edges of the square into the centerline. So it looks like a kite.

Step 3:

Flip the kite base over, so the flaps or on the bottom. Then fold the flaps half way to the center line

Step 4:

Then fold the flaps to the centerline.

Step 5:

Then fold the point of the piece upwards. Then fold the head of the swan downwards

Step 6:

Then fold the swan in half vertically. Then pull the neck  of the swan away from the body.

<p>what's so confusing about it all you have to do is turn the thing around and fold it to the middle line</p>

No offense bet the finished swan is sort of lame maybe you should and more detail <br>to the swan like maybe small little feet so it can REALLY stand up insted of it falling <br>over to one side.
this is easy its fun to make :3
I`m confused with step 3
easy , just flip the &quot;kite&quot; over and fold the outer flaps inwards about half the way to the centerline
