I will show you how to make an origami swan.
You start out with a square piece of paper and fold it along one diagonal, Then unfold it.
Now fold the lower edges of the square into the centerline. So it looks like a kite.
Flip the kite base over, so the flaps or on the bottom. Then fold the flaps half way to the center line
Then fold the flaps to the centerline.
Then fold the point of the piece upwards. Then fold the head of the swan downwards
Then fold the swan in half vertically. Then pull the neck of the swan away from the body.
