What is Origami
'Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper. Together, they form the word, "origami." It is an art form that has been handed down from parent to child through many generations. Origami involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding. Animals, birds, fish, geometric shapes, puppets, toys and masks are among the models that [Everyone can make]'
Step 1: What You Will Need
Step 2: How to Tear Like a Pro
Step 3: Lets Start Folding
After you have finished that you can fold both of the corners on the side (which are helpfully labeled on the image) to the center crease to form another right angle triangle on the top. Now grab the small tip and make a mountain fold, a mountain fold is if a fold goes on top, it is a bit hard to explain so take a look at the last picture which shows a mountain fold. A valley fold is the exact opposite of a mountain fold, in the valley fold the triangle comes from below not above. Now you have the basic shape of the shrimp.
Step 4: More Folding
Step 5: Final Folds
Make about 8 mountain folds and leave some space for the tail. After you have completed that task you may fold the shrimp in half as shown in picture 2. Now comes the fun part, slowly pull out every mountain fold that it is still folded but that it curls up like an actual shrimp. Then you may add color if you want to but otherwise you are done.
