How to Make an Origami Fish


How to Make an Origami Fish. The most popular pet fish in Japan is the
koi, which is symbolic of family, as well as strength and perseverance. And with a little perseverance, you can make
a whole koi family of your own. You will need A sheet of square origami paper
(6″ x 6″ / 15 cm x 15 cm) and a flat surface. Step 1. Begin with the white side of the paper facing
up. Fold one corner to the opposite corner creating
a diagonal fold. Unfold. Step 2. Fold one edge to line up on the center diagonal
line. Fold an adjacent edge to meet on the center
line, creating an ice cream cone shape. Unfold completely. Step 3. Repeat Step 2 on the opposite end of the paper. Unfold completely. Step 4. Rotate your paper so that the center diagonal
crease is horizontal. Step 5. Working on the bottom right and left edges
at the same time, refold the ice cream cone folds. As you do this, the two sides should line
up on the center diagonal and create a triangular tab that sticks up. Pinch the tab closed at its center and fold
it to one side. Step 6. Repeat Step 5 on the remaining white edges,
creating a second tab directly opposite the first. Fold it down in the same direction as the
first. This is a Fish Base, and you can use it to
create whales, dolphins, sharks, and other sea creatures. Step 7. Turn the paper over to the smooth side. Step 8. Fold one of the long points to the middle
of the model, lining it up on the center diagonal. To make a swordfish, fold the long point back
out, shortening it by creating a small pleat in the paper. The long point will be the “sword.” Step 9. Fold the model in half along the center diagonal
so the tabs end up on the outside. Step 10. You should have a blunted end (the head) and
a long pointed end (the tail). The triangular tabs formed in Steps 5 and
6 are the fins. Step 11. Fold up the long end to form a tail to your
liking. You can also reverse this fold in on itself
to keep it in place. Adjust the fins to your liking, and don’t
be coy — enjoy your paper koi. Did you know Did you know: On Children’s Day
in Japan, koi flags are raised—orange/red koi represent the mother, black koi represent
the father, red/pink koi represent girls, and blue/white koi represent boys.
