1. We begin by taking a square sheet of paper. White side up if you are using one.
2. Fold in half diagonally to make a crease, and then unfold.
3. Take the left and top edges, and fold inward about halfway through the center diagonal line making mirror images of each other. Colored section should be the same size as the white section.
4. Flip the model over. Position model this way. Then fold the left-side part of the model to the right.
5. Next is to take the bottom corner and fold it upwards along the line where the edges meet. Make sure that you stick it out a little as this will serve as the tail. So adjust accordingly if you want to have smaller tail, or big tail.
6. Unfold. Then let’s do the inside-reverse fold. Open the model up to this position. Notice the creases we previously created. You can see the inverted “V”.
7. From the inverted “V”, we will make a mountain fold out of it. The triangle section will be pushed and fold inside, you can now see the tail coming out when we re-fold the model back down.
8. Let’s make the head, fold the top inward. And that will make the head and beak of the penguin. Unfold up to this point.
9. Then do the outside-reverse fold. So open this up, find the “V” section again, following the creases bring it forward, and it will bring back together when you flatten out.
10. For the beak, to make it less pointy, fold the beak to the right, then fold it back to the left making a pleat.
11. To make the flippers, fold the corners of the flaps upward. Then fold again the corners inward to make pleats.
And your penguin is COMPLETE!
