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


This traditional origami owl is based on so-called "bird base". One special folding technique you will learn from this model is an asymmetric 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 owl.


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

You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami owl. 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 15cm x 15cm size.
