Origami Dog





Introduction: Origami Dog

There seem to be a lack of origami dogs, so I modified a common-ish model to make this

Step 1:

Begin with a blank piece of origami paper or squared printer paper.

(Disregard the folds; I had messed up. =_=')

Step 2:


Step 3:

Fold one corner to the center. If you are having issues making these folds match up, fold the sides of the paper together, making an "X" in the center.

Step 4:

Fold a second corner to the center.

Step 5:

Fold the third corner to the center.

Step 6:


Step 7:

Fold one side to the center.

Step 8:

Fold the other side to the center.

Step 9:

Squish one flap open.

Step 10:

Squish other flap open

Step 11:

Bring back flap to front.

Step 12:


Step 13:

Fold flaps in half, this is crucial!!!

Step 14:

This is the only tricky part. Bring the side to the center

Step 15:

After the hard step, fold the flap you made behind.

Step 16:

Fold down the square (turned on a corner) flap.

Step 17:

Make the head by folding down the protrusion.

Step 18:

Fold the tail to a 90 degree angle

Step 19:

Fold the nose the same way as the tail, fold the tip backwards, and fold part of the head backwards

Step 20:

Fold the edges of the tail inward. To what point is not necessarily important.

If you go to the back on the triangular flap and crease it when the sides of the triangle line up with the other sides it should work!:)
