Do you enjoy origami? This traditional Asian design is a favorite among beginners and seasoned origami folders alike. Read this article to learn how to fold an origami duck!
Gather the supplies needed. See “Things You’ll Need” below.
Lay the origami paper on a stable surface, turned so that the paper is diamond-shaped. Unless both sides of the paper are the same, the blank side of the paper should be facing up.
Fold the paper in half. This is to create a crease line; be sure to unfold it once you've folded it well enough to get a crease line.
Fold the halves of the paper to the crease line. This means you should take the left side corner of the paper and fold it so that it touches the crease line; repeat with the right side corner.
Turn the paper upside down. Fold the bottom corner up so it’s roughly between the right and left side corners.
Take the top of the corner you folded up and fold it down. It should now be touching the very bottom of the paper.
Fold the entire paper in half. You are mountain folding, so the left side of the paper should be going back.
Turn the paper sideways so that the corner you folded up is at the left.
Take the first corner you folded up, which is the neck of your origami duck. Stretch it forward until it’s in the shape demonstrated by the picture, and then smooth it with your finger so that it’s folded.
Take the smaller corner you folded up, which is the head of your origami duck. Again, stretch it forward until it’s in the shape demonstrated by the picture, and then fold it with your finger.
You’re done! Admire your handiwork.
