If your paper has two different colored sides, note which one is facing up and which one is facing down.
You should now have four creases running through your paper that all intersect in the middle of the square.
It might take a little maneuvering to get the sides to collapse toward the middle of the square. If you do this correctly, the small square you make will have a crease running from the top corner to the bottom corner in the center.
As you lift the bottom corner, the sides of the paper will fall into the diamond shape naturally along the creases you already folded.
The two diamonds should align perfectly over one another when you're finished with both sides. You should now have three points forming three triangles all facing upward, pointing away from you. Repeat this with the other side so that you have the head and tail pointing diagonally outward.
The inside flaps of your folds will be the none marked side of paper that was originally facing up.
As you bring this flap over to the center crease you will be creating another crease and expanding the outer edge of your top flap. Your paper will now resemble something like a stealth bomber paper airplane with four points at the bottom and one point at the top. Keep the folds you made for the tail intact by folding on the creases, but in the reverse direction. When you pull the paper outward, press down on the center folds of your bird and let the portion you are pulling out flatten on the creases you’ve previously made. Align the long edge the triangle fold to the crease you just created from your previous fold. Fold the wings inward again twice so that each wing’s inner edge is now touching the outer edge of your bird’s tail.
You will have crease lines to use as guides as you fold the wings back over twice on each side.
You have now created a zig-zag like fold with the part of the paper making up the head and beak.
This is tricky, but you need to keep the bottom edge of the bird’s head intact while unfolding the wings from beneath. You want to fold the wings down so that the top edge of the bird is flat while the wings are pointing down.
The outside of the bird will show the marked side that you originally had facing down toward the table. Position your paper so that the white side is facing you and it’s in the shape of a diamond.
The tip of your paper should extend below the bottom edge that’s making the base of the triangle. After you fold the paper in half, rotate the paper counter-clockwise 180-degrees so that it is vertical. Make every fold as precise as possible, even from the beginning when you're making the square.

February 17, 2014 by Lee Abbamonte 17 Comments Here is my latest for the American Express Passion Project. I certainly could not survive a long haul flight without noise canceling headphones; Bose to be exact! Be as nice as possible to your neighbors from the get go so they don’t annoy you later on!
Whats better than making Three Flying Ducks , not only can you say 'I made these' but you will have spent a lovely 'CRAFTERNOON' making it ! Everything you need is in this pretty mint green box including fabric, stuffing, Polka dot fabric and lots more for a great crafternoon!

For Christmas in 1996, I received The World Record Paper Airplane Book written by the world record holder of the longest indoor paper airplane flight, Ken Blackburn. From there I just took off and made up many airplane designs, learning that I could tweak them so that anything I came up with would fly straight and smoothly. When I designed this airplane I was folding a lot of origami which requires square sheets of paper. Paper with a multi-colored design works well with this project since the bird's flapping wings will make the colors dance. If your paper is the same color on both sides, make a small mark or design to identify the two sides.
Start by laying the square in front of you so that the bottom corner is pointing at your chest. Rotate the square and fold it again, this time bringing the other corner to meet its opposite.
With the bottom corner of the square pointing toward your chest, fold the top layer of the right corner inward so that its edge aligns with the center crease. Do the same thing, folding the top layer of the left corner inward so that its edge aligns with the center crease. Orient the paper so that the bottom corner (the part that can unfold to reveal the interior) is pointing toward your chest. If you don’t have square paper, take a rectangular piece of paper and fold one corner down and align the edges. If your paper is the same color on both sides, make a small mark or draw a design to identify the two sides.
Take each of the two top flaps and fold inward to align the inner edges to the center crease. Now take the flat flaps which are the layer of paper on the table and fold each side in to align with the outer edges of your last fold.
Fold the wings in again so the bottom edge of this fold aligns with the bottom edge of your first layer of paper. The first of these two folds is the same fold you made before folding the triangle corners. Take the tip of your paper and fold it back so the point meets the horizontal bottom edge of the center layer of paper which is just above the tail.

Fold the portion you just folded down back up in half so that the tip extends just beyond the flat top part of your bird.
You will already have a crease line to make this fold easy from when you folded your triangle in half. If you want to do something special for a friend's wedding, it is Japanese tradition to have a thousand cranes for good luck.
I put together 5 tips to make flying more enjoyable based on my experiences traveling to every country in the world. It sounds so simple but that’s a great point as I am always anxious and pissy when I have to fly and it makes it worse.
Like the graphic might try that on one of my next posts ?? couple of other tips – be nice to the attendants, if you can move to the rear of the plane if spare seats exist. Every time I went to the dentist, I selected a simple styrofoam airplane from the treasure chest. This book explained why paper airplanes fly and crash, and what makes a good airplane design. The flapping bird is an intermediate origami project that will impress all who see your completed work. If all you have is rectangular computer paper, make your own square paper by folding the top corner down diagonally. Pinch the two sides of the square along the horizontal fold, bringing the left and right corners down to the bottom corner.
Now take bottom portion of paper you just folded and unfolded and fold it up and into the flap.
Keeping the center folds intact, pull out on the top layer of the wings in an upward and diagonal direction until the crease line becomes the outer edge.
If your paper has two colors, start the color you want the bird to be facing down toward the table, away from you. I thought to myself, "How hard could that be?" and designed my first plane, the High Glider. You can also make an origami bird that flies like a paper airplane or twirls through the air.
The two sides will collapse in toward the middle, and the top corner will fold over them to form a small square. Orient it so that the bottom corner (the part that can unfold to reveal the interior) is pointing toward your chest. You will fold up in a way so that the outside of your bird is the side of paper currently facing down. Feel free to comment your own tips and I hope you take these 5 tips to make flying more enjoyable to heart! Then take the portion of paper now in the middle and pull it out, keeping the two folds closed.
The side or color that starts facing the table will be the side or color that you will see when the bird is complete.
