Now we are going to make a bird of paradise.
A bird of paradise is a traditional Japanese origami and it is usually made from these
smaller sheets of origami paper that I’m not going to use. We are going to use a bigger
sheet and what we are going to have to do is we are going to have to get a triangle
out of this. The best way of going to get a triangle is to take our sheet and bisect
it like so. Making sure our corners are good and straight. We are going to crease here
and crease it again with my fingernail to make sure that it is good. Now what I’m going
to do is we are going to fold it from this corner and this corner to this corner in a
triangle like so. You want to make sure this is very very accurate. We would start here
and get this corner the way I want it first, get this corner way out next. Just kind of
get the paper until it forms these corners together. We would go ahead and crease it
really a whole lot.
