This is one of the cutest origami imaginable! In addition, it consists of two parts, which is quite rare. However, this does not affect the complexity of the figure.
We prefer to take light paper and add black spots to the cow after completing the origami. It turns out very nice and resembles illustrations from children’s books.

Step 1

Take a sheet of paper 20×20 cm, if it is one-sided, then the colored side down.

Step 2

Bend alternately along the horizontal and vertical axes, crease the folds, and unfold.

Step 3

Fold the sides of the square to the center line.

Step 4
Step 5

Bend the four inner corners outward.

Step 6
Step 7

Bend the top and bottom side corners inward as shown in the photo.

Step 8
Step 9
Step 10

Bend the top and bottom corners towards the center, but not reaching it a little.

Step 11

The side paper should serve as a guide for you: the folds will pass through the centers of the corners.

Step 12

Fold the figure in half lengthwise. Crease the fold well.

Step 13

Slightly unfold the paper on one side, bend back the inner corner, and make a double bend to make a ponytail.

Step 14
Step 15
Step 16
Step 17

Now, we will make a cow’s head from a separate piece of paper – a 10×10 cm square.

Step 18

Make a water bomb base.

Step 19

Bend the bottom corners up, working only with the top layers.

Step 20
Step 21

Crease the folds, and unfold.

Step 22

Slightly opening the paper, turn these corners inside out, using the folds as your guide.

Step 23
Step 24
Step 25

You have two elongated triangles on the sides.

Step 26

Bend the middle corners up so that the fold passes through the center of the outer corner.

Step 27

Bend the top corner of the figure back.

Step 28
Step 29

Fold the figure in half along the vertical axis, so that the small triangles are inside.

Step 30

Next, you will make the cow’s ears.

Step 31

Bend the outer corner up, so that the ears stick out a little behind the horns.

Step 32

Finish line! Bend the remaining corner well, then unbend and push inward.

Step 33
Step 34
Step 35
Step 36

Connect the two parts.

Step 37

Use glue or double-sided tape to keep them in place.

Step 38

Ready! It remains to color the figure and you can admire the result.
