Origami Balloon

Step 1: Materials

- 1 piece of paper

- Scissors

- Pencil crayons/felt pens/crayons

- Take your pencil crayons/felt pen/crayons and colour both sides of your piece of paper with whatever colour you want

Step 3: Getting Started

- Take your piece of paper and place it so it is vertical

Step 4: Making a Square

- Take the bottom right corner and fold it so it is almost to the top left corner (about 2 inches away)

- Cut the top piece of paper off, so that when you unfold the paper it makes a square

Step 5: Making a Smaller Square

- Fold your piece of paper in half so it makes a rectangle

- Turn your paper around so it is vertical, and then fold it in half so it makes a square

Step 6: Making a Triangle

- Turn your piece of paper so that the openings are on the left side and bottom

- Lift up the top flap so it is sticking up

- Put your hand in the opening, take your other hand and push on the top of the flap

- Then there should be a triangle looking shape

Step 7: Making More Triangles

- Take the right flap that looks like a upside down triangle and fold it up

- Do that same step to the left flap

Step 8: More Folding

- Flip your paper around so the diamond shape is on the bottom, with the openings to the right

- Take the bottom point and fold it up just to the line

- Now flip your paper around so the diamond shape is at the top, with the opening on the left

- Take the bottom point and fold it up just to the line

Step 9: Finishing It Off

- Put your finger in your last little triangle shapes so they are more open

- Take your right little flap and fold it into the little triangle right above it

- Take your left little flap and fold it into the little triangle right above it

Step 10: Doing It to the Other Side

- Flip your paper over so that the shape you just made is under the top piece of paper

- The openings of the remaining flap of paper should be on the bottom and the right side

- Lift up the flap so it is sticking up

- Put your hand in the opening, take your other hand and push on the top of the flap

- Then there should be a triangle shape

Step 11: Finishing It Off

- Do the same steps from 6-8 on your remaining triangle looking shape

Step 12: Blowing Up Your Balloon

- Look at the two pointy ends, and there should be a little hole on one of the ends

- Put your mouth to the hole, and gently blow up your paper

- Then your should have a balloon

- DON’T worry if yours doesn’t look perfect, my first one didn’t look that great
