Next, fold the paper across itself, as shown.

Step 4: Folds #3 and 4

Fold the sides of the fold down leaving a little bit of space to get "wings."

Step 5: Cuts #1 and 2

You will notice that there is a triangular overlap on one of the wings. Cut along it. On the other wing, cut out a congruent triangle in the same place.

Step 6: The Face

Refold the bird in half, then draw eyes, nostrils and a beak on the triangular parts you cut out on both sides.

Step 7: Unfold

This the big finish! Just unfold the wings, and you have a duck! You may want to tape the head portion together... It looks weird if you don't.

Step 8: You're Done!!!
