This page is for those who want the instruction to fold an origami elephant with big ears.


This origami elephant with big ears starts from a balloon base. There are three special folding techniques that you should learn for this model; they are inside reverse-fold, outside reverse-fold, and reverse swivel-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 elephant.


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

You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami elephant. 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 a typical origami paper with a dimension of 15cm x 15cm.
