Hey guys, this is Evan from EZ Origami. And today I’ll be teaching you how to fold an Origami Fish Base. This video will be one of many included

in my new Origami Basics Series. Whether you’re new to origami or you’re just looking to brush up on the basics, this will be the perfect series to get

you started. In order to fold your Fish Base, you’ll need one square sheet of

paper. If this is your first time, I recommend

using a six inch or larger square with color on one side and white on the other. And once you’ve prepared your paper, then we’re going to start with our square with the white side up. And we’re going to start by folding in

half diagonally. So take this bottom right corner and fold it up to the top left corner. Align the corners and edges, then make your crease, and then unfold. AAnd now we’re going to fold in half

diagonally in the opposite direction. So this time we’re going to take the

bottom left corner and fold it up to the top right corner. Again, align the corners and the edges. Then make your crease, and then unfold. And now we’re going to rotate the paper

so that the crease we just made is now held vertically. And from here we’re going to fold in this

bottom right edge and align it with the center vertical crease that we just made. So we’re going to start by pulling this right edge over to the left, just like this. Then we’re going to start at the bottom of the model and work our way up, aligning the edge with the crease. And once the entire edge is aligned, then you can make your crease. The model should look like this. And then were going to do the same thing on the left. So we’re going to take this bottom left edge here and again align it with that center vertical crease, just like we did on the

other side. to start by pulling the left edge over

to the right. Again, start at the bottom of the model work your way up, aligning the edge with the crease. And

once the entire edge is aligned, then you can make your crease. And once

you have this, then we’re simply going to unfold the two flaps that we just folded in. Then we’re going to rotate the paper, and

we’re going to do the same exact thing. So once again we’re going to fold in this bottom right edge and align it with the center vertical crease. So we’re going to start by pulling the right

edge over to the left. Again start at the bottom of the model and work your way up. And once the entire edge is aligned with

the crease, then you can make a crease. And once you have this, then we’re going to do the same thing on the left. So once again, we’re going to take this

bottom left edge and align it with the center vertical

crease just like we did on the other side. So pull the left edge over to the right. Again, align the edge with the crease. And once the entire edge is aligned, then you can make your crease. And what you’ve done that to both sides, your model should look like this. And then

we’re going to rotate the paper, and now we’re going to collapse along

existing creases. So what we want to do first is lift up the bottom of this colored flap on the right side the model. So we’re just going to lift it up like this. And what we want to do is fold over

this right edge so that aligns with this vertical crease in the center of the model. So simply push the right edge over to the

left, just like this. And you’ll start to see that the paper

collapses along an existing crease. What you want to do is simply flatten out the paper along that crease, just like this. And you’ll see that you get this excess flap of paper in the center of the model. And what you want to do is pinch it from

both sides so that you collapse along this existing crease. And at this point, the model won’t lie flat. So what you want to do is push that flap up as far as it goes, just like this. And you’re going to make a new crease

just to flatten out the model. An now we’re going to do the same thing on the left. So we’re going to start by lifting up the bottom of this flap on the left side the model, just like we did on the other side. And

once again, we want to fold over this left edge an align it with the vertical crease in the

center the model. So simply push over on the left side the model, just like this. And you’ll see that it’ll start to collapse along this existing crease. You simply want to flatten out the paper

along that crease. And then you’ll notice this excess flap of paper in the center the

model. You simply want to pinch that flap from both sides, just like this, so that you collapse along this existing crease. Then we’re going to fold up the flap as far as it goes, and make a small crease just to flatten out the model. And once you’ve done that on both sides,

then your Fish Base is complete. I hope you enjoy this video tutorial on
