How to Make an Origami Dog

by Kristen Whipple

This is a simple animal shape that my daughter taught me how to make!


  • A square piece of paper
  • Colored markers, for eyes and nose
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Begin with a square.

    Step 2

    Pick up a corner and match it to a diagonal corner so that it creates a triangle.

    Step 3

    Making sure the long folded side of the triangle is at the top, take one of the points and fold it down slightly past the diagonal edge.

    Step 4

    Take the other point and fold it down slightly past its diagonal edge.

    Step 5

    Take the bottom point and fold it upward so that it makes a small triangle.

    Step 6

    Using colored markers, create two eyes.

    Step 7

    Color a triangular nose on the top of the lowest triangle, taking care to not color on the 'face.' Your dog is now complete!
