Origami Flapping Bird

The soaring bird, made according to the proposed master class, actually flutters its wings. Of course, it does not happen without the help of its owner. You have to not only fold the paper correctly but also work with your hands, directing the bird on a long flight. If you want, you can also make a larger bird by taking a sheet of paper of larger dimensions. The steps of the master class will not change with the change in size. Follow them in the suggested order!

Step 1

Take a sheet of paper (15x15cm).

Step 2

Perform folds in all directions (both diagonals, in the horizontal and vertical direction).

Step 3

Fold a sheet of paper along the obtained folds.

Step 4
Step 5

Bend the sides to the central fold.

Step 6

Bend the top valve down.

Step 7

Open the folds made in the last two steps, then make a petal fold.

Step 8
Step 9
Step 10

Flip the figure.

Step 11

Fold the side edges towards the center.

Step 12

After that, open the folds and make a “petal” fold.

Step 13
Step 14

Fold the bottom right corner up.

Step 15

Repeat the action with the left corner.

Step 16

Perform a reverse fold with each fold of the last two steps.

Step 17
Step 18
Step 19
Step 20
Step 21
Step 22

Change the direction of the central part of the soaring bird, for which you need to increase the size of the triangle at point 1 (see photo). The shape will bend forward a little in the middle.

Step 23

Make a fold on the left side, forming the bird’s head. After that, perform a reverse fold with a fold.

Step 24
Step 25

Bend the upper outer wing down.

Step 26

Repeat the action with the second wing behind.

Step 27

The soaring bird is ready.

If you hold it in your hands in the tail area and under the wings, simultaneously performing back-and-forth actions, the wings will begin to move. An interesting technique that fascinates both children and adults. Therefore, you can safely make several birds and play with the whole family. Do you want to find out whose bird will be more agile and fly higher?
