Origami has been familiar as a traditional Japanese culture. Even now it’s enjoyed by many people.

Even though it has been seemed not surprising since long ago, I realized it amazing that we can make various things from just a piece of origami paper.

You can make all sorts of things if there is origami.

▲Fold the corners down, and then fold them back like the picture. And there is a point you should be careful.

It’s better to put it lower than the maximum. If you care this, the balance of the whole work will be very good.

 

6. Fold it to Put the Lower Apex together with the Upper Apex and Fold it back so that it Makes a Pleat.

How is it? So cute! It took only a short time to make a bird!

The point you should be careful is, as I said, the step to fold the corners back in the 5th step. You can make a well-balanced bird like this, if you put it lower than the maximum. You can get relaxed with it displayed in your room, can’t you?
