How to Make an Origami Bird

Picture of How to Make an Origami Bird
This bird is fairly easy to fold, although you might want to try a few easier models before it. It will help you through your daily life, as a bookmark, a gift, or just a reminder that nature is wherever you go, even in your office high in a tower in the city. Here is a link to my first origami instructable, Origami Bases and Basics. I got this model from the book, The Joy of Origami, by Margaret Van Sicklen.

Step 1: Fold in half, several times

Fold in half on the diagonals, from the top point to the bottom point, left to right. It should end up like a triangle with the longest side on the left. Then fold in half again, putting the top corner on the bottom one. It should end up as another, smaller triangle.

Step 7: The tail

This step is a few steps. Fold the right corner down. Open the top layer of the tail and squash fold it. Make it as even as possible. Fold the right, top half back. You are done.
