Easy Origami Fox Tutorial

Today is world origami day! Origami is the Japanese art of folding paper into various creative things, such as animals and flowers. Here’s a quick origami fact – Did you know that in Japan a paper crane is considered a symbol of peace! To celebrate this wonderful day I have created an easy origami fox tutorial, so you too can get involved:

What you will need:

  • Square origami paper
  • Pen

1. Fold the square origami paper in half to form a triangle:
