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


The origami frog might be one of the most complicated model you will ever learn within the category of easy origami models. You will have to go through total 46 steps to complete making an origami frog. It is based on so-called "square base". So you will learn what this square base is and how it is related to the frog. The most important technique that you will learn from this origami frog is "inside reverse-fold" which will be applied repeatedly many times. So please pay attention to learn and understand what this "inside reverse-fold" is.


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 frog.


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

You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami frog. 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 expereienced in paper folding. 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.

traditional origami frog: back side of paper


This is the back side of paper.


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