This instructable is similar to my paper duck, although the initial folding style is different. It will show you how to create a bird with a smaller body and a bogger wingspan.
Step 1: Materialz (not Really)
You will only need a piece of paper for this project. :)
Step 2: Fold #1
Fold the opposite corners of the paper together like so...
Step 3: Fold #2
Fold the shape you have made in half.
Step 4: Fold #3
Do an "M" fold to create wings. Just fold each half straight down, leaving a little bit of space. Do this on both sides.
Step 5: The Head
The pointier side of the body will be the head. You can draw a face if you want.
Step 6: The Finished Bird
Once you've folded and unfolded the wings, you will see that you have a wonderful paper creation thats all your own! Enjoy!
