How to make an Origami Whale in 15 steps

Introduction:

Making a paper origami of a whale is fairly easy. This origami does not require many folds, and you only need a pair of scissors and a piece of paper to make this. Just follow the step-by-step instructions below, and you can have your paper whale. Enjoy!

Difficulty Level: Intermediate

Get a piece of square origami paper. To make this origami whale, it is better to use paper with one color on one side to follow the following instructions easily.  Fold the paper in half as shown. Crease the paper well and unfold it.

Bring the left and right corners to the middle crease. For this step, fold the bottom part by following the dashed line as shown. Crease the origami paper well and unfold.

Repeat step 2 except now, start at the top area and bring the left and right corners to the middle crease.

Make the 2 horizontal creases as shown. The simplest way is to fold the paper in half but only crease on the dashed lines.

Once the creases are made, you are going to make a fish base. To make this base, bring the sides of the right area to the middle crease line. After doing so, squash the “extra flap”  to one side. See step 5 on how it should look like.

The right side should look like this. Repeat step 5 on the left side. Bring the sides of the left area to the middle crease line. After that, squash the “extra flap” on one side.

Your origami fish base is done! Now flip the paper around.

Fold the left and right corners of the origami whale to the center crease line.

Flip the origami whale around. Then, turn the paper 90 degrees counterclockwise.

The orientation of your origami paper should look like this. Get a pair of scissors and cut a slit along the dashed line. This will be the origami whale’s tail.

Mountain fold the origami whale in half. Follow the dashed line and the direction of the mountain fold.

Snip the left area of the origami paper to shape the head of the whale. Follow the dashed line in the illustration to know where to cut.

Shape the flipper and fluke tail of the on this side by folding along the dashed lines’ directions. Fold the top layer ONLY.

The fin and tail of your origami whale should look like this. Now flip the paper around.

The last step is to shape the flipper and fluke tail of the whale on this side by folding along the dashed lines’ directions. Fold the outer layer ONLY. Turn the paper around after.

Your origami whale is finished! If you look closely, it looks likes a  Sperm whale.
