An origami tiger is folded from two sheets of orange paper (you can use white paper if you want to create a white tiger). According to the Chinese zodiac calendar, the tiger is the third of the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac. The other signs of the Chinese Zodiac are the rat, bull, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig.
Turn the paper over with the open side facing up and fold the corner of the front of the paper over.
When the rolling of the tube comes to an end, start rolling from the opposite side, as shown below.
Now, complete the folding of the tiger’s tail.
The roll on the end part will allow you to cover the main paper tube without resorting to tape or glue.
The paper tube will turn out to be quite flexible. Bend it into an “S” shape to form the tail of the tiger.
Now, the body of the tiger is all you have left to do. For this, fold the body of the origami cow.
Insert the head and tail of the tiger into the body (you can use tape). Now, draw the stripes with a marker or pen.
To fold a more realistic origami tiger, you can use animal print origami paper.
