Origami Folding Instructions : How to Make an Origami Flying Bird


One of classic Japanese Origami is the flying
bird. Hi, my name is Robert Segundo and today I’m going to teach you how to make that flying
bird. And what we’re going to do is we’re going to start off with our bird base. As
you can see here, we’re going to start with a square piece of paper, and its already pre-creased
for the bird base so you can just go through this rather quickly. But to get this crease
pattern what you’re going to want to do is first, fold your paper in half like so, I’m
going to back up, fold it in half again, like so. And then open it up again and then fold
it in to triangles, like so. What this is going to do is this is going to pre-crease
this for what you’re going in to which is going to be, you’re going to fold your paper
in half, and then take this crease here and fold it over like so. Fold this one in like
so and there you have this diamond shape that is equal, you know, all the way around like
this. And to go in to our bird base, what we’re going to do is we’re going to take these
flaps here and fold them in to the center line that has already been created here, from
our previous folds. There we go, we’re going to flip it over and do the same thing here,
and we have this diamond kite shape. To go in to our bird base we’ll just go ahead and
open this up, and pull this back like so. And what we’re going to do is we’re going
to bring these corners in to the inside edge, all the way up to form this perfect diamond
shape, here. And flip this over, do the same thing here, open it up. It’s going to crease
in just like that and then fold these back down. Now we’re back in to our kite shape.
Now, to go in to our flying bird we’re going to open this side up and open this side up
to where they’re both at the top and we’re going to take and open fold them like so.
Take a second here because my paper doesn’t want to cooperate. tasty folds, there we go.
Now what we’re going to do is we’re going to angle the neck. We’re going to basically
just kind of squash fold this by grabbing this point, pulling it down to where it is
in line with our wing section here. And then just squash folding it, as it is called. We’re
going to do that same thing with the tail. Fold it down like so. Now what we’re going
to do is we’re going to form the head by just opening this up and rabbit ear folding this,
like so. There we go. Now, open the wings like this and then fold them down pulling
off this point here, we’re going to fold it down in to a forward fold. Same thing here,
off this back point, and kind of keeping it even with that wing right there. And there
you have it. Now all you have to do is kind of open this section up here, kind of give
it a little room, and then hold right here at the point of the neck. And then you can
just, whoops, there we go, you can just, well, pull and it’s wings flap like so. My name
is Robert Segundo and this is your flying bird.
