Step 1:

Picture of

Begin with a blank piece of origami paper or squared printer paper.

(Disregard the folds; I had messed up. =_=')

Step 2:

Step 3:

Fold one corner to the center. If you are having issues making these folds match up, fold the sides of the paper together, making an "X" in the center.

Step 4:

Fold a second corner to the center.

Step 5:

Fold the third corner to the center.

Step 6:

Step 13:

Step 14:

This is the only tricky part. Bring the side to the center

Step 15:

Picture of

After the hard step, fold the flap you made behind.

Step 16:

Picture of

Fold down the square (turned on a corner) flap.

Step 17:

Make the head by folding down the protrusion.

Step 18:

Picture of

Fold the tail to a 90 degree angle

Step 19:

Picture of

Fold the nose the same way as the tail, fold the tip backwards, and fold part of the head backwards

Step 20:

Picture of

Fold the edges of the tail inward. To what point is not necessarily important.

If you go to the back on the triangular flap and crease it when the sides of the triangle line up with the other sides it should work!:)
