A souvenir elephant using the origami technique can be made both from a banknote and from plain paper. If you want to give an original present, this is the best option! Just fold an elephant for good luck from a banknote. In the meantime, it’s worth practicing on a sheet of paper the size of a banknote. Carefully follow all the steps, as the process is not simple and requires perseverance and time.
Bend the upper and lower corners on the left to the middle, as if you would be making an airplane.
Two folds have formed between the left corner and the right edge. Between them, you need to make another line, for which you should connect both folds together and crease the fold.
Bend the right edge to the first line to get another valley fold. Then, return the right edge to its original position.
Then, raise the triangle in the opposite direction, but make the valley fold at the level of the middle fold.
Position the figure as in the photo. Make two small diagonal folds at the bottom of the crease.
Fold the figure in half lengthwise. You can already see the blank for the elephant figurine.
You can draw a neat eye and start playing. The souvenir figurine will definitely be appreciated by the one to whom you are going to give it. Practice on plain paper, and then you can make a figure from a banknote. Then, you will definitely surprise with a gift and craftsmanship!
