I will show you how to make an origami swan.

Step 1:

You start out with a square piece of paper and fold it alongĀ 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 neckĀ  of the swan away from the body.

I made it!!! (it's ugly!!!)

i think i did it.

it was hard but then I made it for a second time and it was easy

No offense bet the finished swan is sort of lame maybe you should and more detail
to the swan like maybe small little feet so it can REALLY stand up insted of it falling
over to one side.

Four is basically when you fold the flaps again to the middle.

You know how the last step was folding it halfway to the middle? Well now just roll it over and fold it to the middle. Do you get what I'm saying? It's kinda confusing sorry

woo :) I made it

This is so hard! Next time put more effort into it and a little more examples.

but it looks like a pecock or a boat

I didn't make anything! ????

All I made was a crumbled piece of paper.
