Fold the same way but with the other top corner, then unfold again

Step 4: Starting the Nose

Push in on the sides like in picture 1 and then push down on the top like picture 2

Step 5: Starting the Wings

Turn the paper over so it looks like picture 1 and then fold in half like in picture 2

Step 6: Wings Continued

Fold down like in picture 1, then turn the paper over and fold the same way so it looks like picture 2

Step 7: Finishing Up

Pull the wings out a little so it looks like the picture

Step 8: Finished

And now you are done, enjoy!
