This page is for those who want the instruction to fold a traditional origami pig.


This traditional origami pig is a very interesting model to work on. At first it looks like a 2D model but it is not. This model simulates four legs beautifully with a minimum folding steps. The folding techniques that you will lean from this model are both squash-fold and inside reverse-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 pig.


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

You may use any kind of paper to fold this origami pig. 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.
