How to Make an Origami Penguin

Intro: How to Make an Origami Penguin

-For this tutorial, all you need is a square piece of paper and your hands!

-You can have the paper colored or not since its up to you how you design the penguin

-If you don't get it the first time, don't worry! Origami isn't something everyone gets immediately

Step 1: Begin With Corner Facing You

Put the square flat on the table and have a corner point at you (If using colored paper, colored side should face up)

Step 2: Bottom Corner to Top Corner

Take the bottom corner and fold it to the top, crease. It should resemble the triangle above

Step 3: Left Corner to Top Corner

Bring the left corner to the top and fold. Crease and unfold this.

Step 4: Top Corner to Crease Line

Take the first layer of the top corner and fold it to touch the crease line you created in the previous step

Step 5: Turn Over and Repeat

Repeating Last Step turn over the paper and do the same step of taking the remaining layer of the top corner and bringing it to the crease line. It should mirror the fold on the other side

Step 6: Unfold Center Crease

Unfold the entire piece of paper (the center crease you made in the 2nd step). Turn 90 degrees clockwise or make sure the wide end is towards you

Step 7: Bottom Corner to Middle

Take the bottom corner and fold it to the middle. It should hit the meeting point of the two crease lines

Step 8: Fold in Half

Fold the paper in half (longways), left to right. You will be basically folding it in the way that you had it two steps ago

Step 9: Fold Top Corner Forward

Take the top point and fold it so that it is pointing forward crease and unfold. This will become the head of the penguin

Step 10: Turn Over and Repeat

Repeating last step flip the penguin over and again, fold the top point forward crease and unfold on this side too

Step 11: Unfold and Fold Forward

Unfold the design down the middle enough so that you can take the top corner and fold it forward (away from you) at the crease that you created in the previous two steps. This is a tricky step, don't get frustrated if it is confusing

Step 12: Finished Product

And there you have it, a beautiful origami penguin! Hope you enjoyed making it!
