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

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

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 13.5cm x 13.5cm square one. If you are a novice, it would be better to start with a larger paper.
