I'm going to show you how to make an origami crane it's fairly simple and the thing I first learned
First you need square paper. I chose foil paper because I like the look but anything works
Fold diagonally colored side down (sorry about the pre-existing creases)
Fold in half again...
This part is tricky. Stick your finger in the way back
Repeat on the other side
Fold open sides to the middle...
On all sides
Tuck them in...
Once again all sides
Flip flaps up
Fold sides with the hole into the middle
Open up the side flaps and push up the flaps
When you have both, fold the worse one down to make the head
Now lightly tug on the wings until the pointy thing in the middle goes down or just fold down the wings. And your done!
