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


The origami goldfish is a simple modification of origami balloon. You will have to follow through the exactly the same steps up to one side of balloon but there will be different steps for the other side. Although it is very easy to make, it symbolically resembles the real goldfish.


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 goldfish.


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

You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami goldfish. 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. It is a good size for those who are not experienced in paper folding. If you are become familiar with this model. Then you can try smaller size paper.
