As you already know, basic shapes are very important in the art of origami. There are quite a few of them, and one of them is the Organ. A simple Organ is named so because it resembles a musical instrument. Like other basic shapes and folds, Organ is used in crafting more complex origami figures, such as, for example, a Fox Face.

We recommend that you pay a lot of attention to these simple basic folds because the final result depends a lot on how you do them. So don’t be lazy and practice folding basic shapes, even though it’s not as much fun as making animal or flower shapes. Start with practicing on regular paper, and when you are confident in each fold and bend, repeat all steps on colored paper of the desired shade. For the Organ shape, place the paper with the colored side up.

Step 1

Cut out a 15×15 cm square. You can use double-sided paper to make it more colorful.

Step 2

Fold it in half horizontally with the movement towards yourself.

Step 3

Fold the resulting piece in half vertically again and unfold it – the fold should be located exactly in the middle.

Step 4

Visually the pattern consists of two squares.

Step 5

Fold in half first and then the other square so that the right and left edges of the piece are in the center.

Step 6

Fold back the right half, open the “pocket” and press it from the top as shown in the photo.

Step 7

Open up the pocket and flatten it to the surface of the table.

Step 8

Iron the top part of the opened pocket well with your fingers.

Step 9

Do the same with the left half.

Step 10

Your Organ origami figure is ready!
