The Origami Flapping Bird

This is a fun origami project where you can make an origami flapping bird. It is a very traditional fold and quite unique in that the flapping of the wings is interesting and looks good. This isn't a difficult fold and all you need is a square of paper. In this tutorial I use an eight inch piece of paper.

Tidbit: I read somewhere that the smallest origami flapping bird ever made was done with a square of paper that was only 1/10th of an inch in size. Wow! That is one small bird.





Origami Paper Traditional Prints

Origami Paper Traditional Prints 8 1/4

I like the size of this paper (8 1/4 inches) It is good for big hands and for small hands. It comes in six different patterns and is double sided in that there is a pattern printed on both sides. One side is a pattern and the other side is the same pattern with the colors reversed. See my accompanying picture for the patterns. This package also comes with a small booklet that shows you how to fold six different items like (see my accompanying picture) a kimono, crane, Star box,lantern, fishing boat,and Hashi Wrapper which is good for holding chopsticks or pencils . The paper itself is pretty good and it holds sharp creases and is durable. So, if you are a beginner this is a good paper for you. It is also good paper for kids because of the durability and the larger size. And as a little bonus you also get a nice sheet of gold paper which you can save for a special project.
