Origami is the art of folding paper without using scissors or glue to obtain figures of various shapes.
Did you know that in Japan people give origami cranes to wish health, happiness, well-being and prosperity.
This is why Germaine de Capuccini gives you the opportunity to learn how to make a swan to give, decorate your home or shop window and adorn gifts in the purest #ChristmasGermaine style.
¡Best wishes for the closest ones!
- Colour paper 15×15 cm.
- Paper folder (or similar).
Step by step:
1- Begin with a paper square. Fold diagonally forming an X.
2- Turn the paper and fold vertically and horizontally forming a +.
3- We obtain a figure like the following.
4- Fold in a triangle like the image.
5- Fold the ends inwardly like an inverted pleat as shown in the images.
6- Carry out the same fold on the opposite side.
7- We obtain a figure like the image.
8- Fold the inferior right corner so it meets the central line of the piece.
9- Repeat the fold on the inferior left corner. Next, turn the piece and repeat the folds we have just done.
10- Fold the top part of the piece as indicated in the image.
11- Unfold the three folds. The top fold and the side folds.
12- Open upwardly the piece and fold inwardly the sides guiding yourself with the marks left of the folds carried out in steps 8, 9 and 10. (Carry out the same fold on the front side).
13- Fold the inferior left side so it meets the central line. Carry out the same process on the right side of the piece.
14- Turn the piece and repeat the fold on both sides.
15- Lift the inferior part folding it upwards. Turn and repeat the fold.
16- Take slightly out the two finer ends to obtain the head and tail of the swan.
17- Delicately pull outwards and the wings will appear.
And ready! We have our Germaine de Capuccini swan finished!
