Introduction: How to Make an Origami Swan

About: This profile is comprised of the instructions written by my Composition 101 students. The assignment was intent to get them thinking about how to explain and teach how to complete a given process to a group. …

I will show you how to make an origami swan.

Step 1:

You start out with a square piece of paper and fold it along one diagonal, Then unfold it.

Step 2:

Now fold the lower edges of the square into the centerline. So it looks like a kite.

Step 3:

Flip the kite base over, so the flaps or on the bottom. Then fold the flaps half way to the center line

Step 4:

Then fold the flaps to the centerline.

Step 5:

Then fold the point of the piece upwards. Then fold the head of the swan downwards

Step 6:

Then fold the swan in half vertically. Then pull the neck  of the swan away from the body.
