This page is for those who want the instruction to fold a flying origami crane.


This flying origami crane is derived from bird base. You will learn both inside reverse-fold and outside reverse-fold from this model. One special folding technique that you will learn from this flying crane is asymmetric squash-fold.


Before working on this model, you need to know what valley-fold and mountain-fold are. If you know these two folding techniques, then you will have no problem in making origami crane.


If you are ready, then let's get started.


If you find any bugs on this instruction, please send an email to HyoAhn's email.


You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami crane. It is a little easier if the front and the back side of the paper are slightly different whether it be in texture or color.

Make sure the paper that you use is a square (all sides are equal and all the angles equal 90 degrees). The paper I am using here is 20cm x 20cm square one. If you are become familiar with this model. Then you can try smaller size paper.

If would be nice to have a white color one. But it is extremely difficult to see the paper under white background.

This is the back side of paper.


Keep in your mind that the front side is the shinier one.
