How to make a snake using origami
Most of origami figures we know are made from a variety of pre-made units.
- Sheet of white paper.
- Scissors and pencil.
Take a square piece of white paper, fold it diagonally. Take the top corners and fold it to let the two edges meet.
Fold the same edges so that the two folds meet in the middle of the paper one more time.
Now take the short sides of the diamond and fold them in the same way. You will get a diamond with lengthy corner.
Bend the short part of the diamond at an angle of 90 degrees.
Bend the latest folded part at an angle of 90 degrees to create head of the snake. Concave tip of the nose inside. Camber the body up following diagonal line to get a volume shape of snake.
Now bend the trunk of the snake to get a lot of pleats as shown on picture and you’re done.
- Try to keep the fold lines clear to make small pieces noticeable.
