Origami Folding Instructions : How to Fold an Origami Dragon


Origami is a great way to show other people
your creativity when folding paper. What I’m going to do today is show you how to make
an origami dragon. So, if you look here you can see I’ve already start a simple bird base
for my origami dragon. Many animals are build from this origami bird base. So what we are
going to do here is basically we are going to just go ahead and fold the parts that are
going to be the wings right up like so. What we are going to here is basically we’re going
to go into the crane set-up but instead of going in and doing a crane we’re going to
do a dragon instead. So, what we are going to do is we’re going to grab the head, this
flap here which would be the head, we’re just going to take it and pull it down until it
forms triangle feet like so. Same way with the crane, you want to kind of keep it in
line with itself. As you’re coming down, we’re going to do the same thing over here like
so. What we’re going to do is we’re going to open these up and we’re going to make these
just a, we’re going to fold these over again and make them just a little bit thinner. So,
we’re kind of getting away from that crane look and going more towards a dragon giving
that thin snake-like head. All right, there we go. We’re going to do the same thing with
the tail. Just open it up , fold it in like so. I’m using a bit thicker paper here so
it’s taking a bit more force to make the folds like so. Just fold this back over. Make sure
you get these folds right too. There we go. Basically, what we’re going to do is we’re
just going rabbit ear fold these down. For the tail, we’ll just make a couple of rabbit
ear folds like so one on top of the other one to give the curve in the tail. We’ll do
the same thing with the head. Except in the head, we’re going to go down for the crane,
like so, and then bring it back up. What we’ll do is we’ll give him the little point in the
back there kind of like a little horn. Basically, just take the wings and fold them towards
the back like so. Then you can take and you can keep mountain folding and valley folding
increasing here in triangles to give him the batwing look. Basically, that’s it. There’s
your origami dragon. Have fun and enjoy your origami.
