Origami Angelfish Step 1: Start with a square 6" x 6" (15cm x 15cm) origami paper color side down.
Do use an Animal Print Origami Paper like we did to make your origami extra special.
Make a fold on the dash line as shown. Crease well and unfold. Alternatively, make a waterbomb base and skip to Step 7.
Origami Waterbomb Base
Origami Angelfish Step 2: Now we'll fold it in half from bottom to top. Crease well.
Origami Angelfish Step 3: We'll fold the paper in half again, this time bringing the right side to left. This forms a small square.
Origami Angelfish Step 4: We'll make a squash fold now. Bring the top flap over to the right, open the paper, squash down to form a triangle.
Origami Angelfish Step 5: FLIP paper over.
Origami Angelfish Step 6: Now, make a squash fold on this side and form a triangle. Hey, what is this? It's a waterbomb base!
Origami Angelfish Step 7: Now, rotate the paper clockwise 90 degrees so that the paper looks like the photo below. Now, we will fold the top flap on the dash line below.
Origami Angelfish Step 8: Now, we will bring the bottom flap up and fold it over to the top.
Origami Angelfish Step 9: FLIP the paper over and guess what? The origami angelfish is complete!
