Ok, this paper crane has 2 major steps that are really hard. But bear with me and if you have some problems or questions just leave me a comment and I...
Fold your square paper like a triangle like so.
Make your paper like so( fold the triangle that you made earlier in half then unfold).
Fold it like it shows in the picture so if you flatted it it would be like another square.
Now fold it like a kite on both sides of both sides.
After that fold that top triangle down and crease it pretty good.
Than unfold like so.
Oh goodie, here comes the hard part. The bottom flap of the square that you have, you flod it up like in the picture.
And fold it up were you creased the triangle in the kite step, and flatten. Do that on both sides.
AAAAGGGG! Almost done. Then fold the sides on the bottom edges inward like the picture. Do that on both sides.
You should have a finished product like this, and if you don't...you messed up.
Then open it up and fold the bottom points up.(follow the pictures)
The fold down one of the wings and bend one point down to make the head.(follow the pictures again)
TADA!!! DONE, finally...
We have a be nice comment policy. Please be positive and constructive.
We noticed you attached photosto your comment.
i managed to fold it thanks for the guide. needed to make 5 for my son's art class tomorrow.
I tried it. I did it perfectly all the way through until I got to step 4. How can you fold that without making it completely like a kite? It only went like a kite for me.
