Folding Origami Paper Crafts : How to Make an Origami Swan


There are many birds that can be made with
Origami, and today I’m going to teach you how to make a special one. My name is Robert
Segundo, and I’m going to teach you how to make the swan. If we look down here on our
table, you can see I have a nice, white piece of paper. It’s already in a square shape.
What I’m going to do is, I’m gonna, basic, I’m going to start this one off in the….with
this kite base. Like so.
There we go. After we have our kite base, what we’re going to do is basically just take
it and fold it over, like so. Now what we want to do is, this point’s going to be our
head, so what we want to do is we want to open this up, and we want to reverse fold
it down, like, somewhere around, like so. So what I’m going to do is, I’m just going
to crease it like that, then I’ll open……a…get it to work with me here. Reverse fold it down,
something like that. We want to make sure the head is really close, like this, and it
sticks down way further than the body does. So what we’re going to do is we’re going to
open it up. Just going to go ahead and fold this in, like so, on both sides. There we
go. Now what we’re going to do is, we’re going to take it and reverse fold it back up. And
it’s going to stop, it’s going to be limited by how far we go up, so, you’ll know exactly
how far you should go up with it, like so. Here it is, like that. What we’re going to
do is, we’re going to take, you’re going to fold the tail down. So we’re going to open
this up, just basically, fold the point in to this point here. Close it off. There you
go. You see we got the body started really well. Now what we’re going to do is we’re
going to take the tail, since we already folded it down, and we’re going to fold it right
back up again. Like so. It’s going to take a bit of working with to get it. You just
want to kind of do it straight up to where it kind of emulates what’s going on here with
the….the body. And now we’re going to take the wings, fold them up as far as they’ll
go. Like so. Flip it over. Do the other side, like so. Now that this is all complete, all
you really gotta do is work on the head, and we’ll just take…right now we’ll just do
a simple fold, like so. There you have it, your Origami swan. Play around with it, have
fun, and enjoy.
