This page is for those who want the instruction to fold an origami sunfish.


This origami sunfish starts from square base. Three special folding techniques that you need to learn from this model are closed sunk-fold, inside reverse-fold, and nail-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 sunfish.


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

You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami sunfish.

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 15cm x 15cm square one.
