Origami Rooster Step 1: Start with a square piece of origami paper, colored side down. Fold in half along the diagonal.





Origami Rooster Step 2: Now fold corners A and B down to corner C. Fold the model in half lengthwise, moving corner D to the back. Rotate 90 degrees clockwise.




Origami Rooster Step 3: Now take the top flap and do a squash fold, as shown in the next three (3) photos.






Origami Rooster Step 4: Repeat this squash fold on the back of the model. Then do an inside reverse fold as shown. This forms the feet of the origami rooster.





Origami Rooster Step 5: Rotate the model 90 degrees clockwise. Now at corner E, fold back the outer layer of paper. This forms the rooster's crown.





Origami Rooster Step 6: Next do an inside reverse fold to form the rooster's beak. Now your origami rooster is complete!
