How to Make an Origami Flapping Bird


In this tutorial, I will teach you how to make an Origami Flapping Bird (really flaps!) using a regular sheet of printer paper. If you have any origami or square paper, that would be ideal to use. Making the Origami Flapping Bird is very similar to making the Origami Crane, yet with fewer folds. We must know how to make the Origami Bird Base, from which we can then make the flapping bird. I teach how to make the Bird Base step by step in this tutorial, but if you already know how to make it, you may fast forward to around 5:30. If you already know how to make the Bird Base, you may fast forward to around 5:30 to learn how to convert the bird base into a flapping bird. To make the bird flap, you hold the neck and pull on the tail. As always, please comment, rate and subscribe for notification of my future videos. Post any questions in the comment section and also let me know what else you would like to learn. Thanks for watching! -Rob

    Woo! Thanks! Mine flaps! Think you just need to not be afraid to give the tail a proper tug, so to speak, for it to work the first time x

    @ItsHardcoreParkour you gotta pinch close to the stand on the neck of the bird, and then pinch the base of the tail… followed by pulling the tail somewhat hard
