How to make an Origami Egg-Laying Hen (Kirigami) …for all (67)


Hi! We are going to fold
a traditional egg-laying hen! This is “…and Origami for all” and I am danbergam. Fold your imagination! Please, turn on the annotations
and the subtitles in your YouTube Player to better enjoy this video! You’ll need a Preliminary Base. Click the picture to open the tutorial
in a new window! You’ll also need a pair of
round-tip scissors! Step 1 Fold down the top layer of the square
along its horizontal diagonal. Step 2 Turn the model over and repeat Step 1. Step 3 Fold the front left flap
to the right. Step 4 Turn the model over
and repeat Step 3. Step 5 Fold the upper right side
of the front square so that it overlaps
the vertical axis of the model. Steps 6 Repeat Step 5 on the left side
of the front square. Step 7 Turn the model over and repeat Step 5 (or Step 6). Step 8 Repeat Step 6 (or Step 5). Step 9 Fold the front left flap
to the right. Step 10 Turn the model over and repeat Step 9. Step 11 Fold the right top triangle
towards the exterior. Step 12 Unfold the previous crease and, by using it, bring the outer layers
of the triangle inside, while re-folding it. Step 13 Fold the tip of the right top triangle
towards the interior. Step 14 Unfold the previous step, open the triangle and use the crease
just made to bring the inner layers of paper outside, while folding down
the triangle. This completes the tail of the hen! Step 15 Fold the left top triangle
towards the exterior. Step 16 Unfold the previous crease
and, by using it, bring the outers layers
of the triangle inside, while re-folding it. Step 17 Fold the left top triangle
towards the interior and then unfold it. Step 18 Fold the tip of the left top triangle
towards the interior and then unfold it. Step 19 By using the crease
from Step 17, bring the outer layers
of the triangle inside, while refolding it. Step 20 By using the crease
from Step 18, bring the outer layers of the triangle
inside, while re-folding it. This completes the head of the hen! Step 21 At the height
of the largest width of the hen’s base, fold up the front layer
of paper. Step 22 At the height of the underlying
layer of paper, fold down the tip
of the triangle. Step 23 Tuck the tip of the triangle under
the underlying layer of paper. Step 24 Turn the model over and repeat Step 21. Step 25 Repeat Step 23. Step 26 Make a horizontal crease
across the base, that will serve as a guide
to obtain the egg. The lower you fold, the smaller the egg will be. Step 27 Cut along the crease
from Step 26. Attention! Only use round-tip scissors or ask an adult for help! Keep it safe! Now we will exclusively work on the triangle
we just cut. Step 28 With the triangle’s tip pointing down fold down the left half of the base
of the front flap, so that it overlaps the vertical axis
of the triangle itself. Step 29 Fold the tip of the flap behind the flap itself. Step 30 Repeat Step 28
on the right side. Step 31 Repeat Step 29
on the right side. Step 32 Turn the model over and repeat Step 28
on the left side. Step 33 Repeat Step 29
on the left side. Step 34 Repeat Step 28
on the right side. Step 35 Repeat Step 29
on the right side. It’s done! Now let’s see how the hen
can lay its egg! Isn’t it funny? Thumb-up
if you think so! One last time
(and with a different technique)! Thank you
