How to make an Origami Snake
The origami snake is very simple to make. With some imagination, it can be used as a base for spiders, dragons, Loch Ness monsters, etc.

You now have a rectangle. Start at one corner of the rectangle, and begin rolling the paper into a tube.
You will roll diagonally as shown in the photo. Try to roll as tightly as possible.
Near the end of the roll, you will need to roll the other corner of the paper in towards the main roll. Make that roll tight also.
Then continue with the original roll, in the original direction.
The point of doing this is that the end of the roll will now stay put, without needing tape or glue.
Tighten the roll by holding one end in each hand, and twisting (gently!) in opposite directions.
Now take your origami tube, and gently shape it into a series of curves.
The resulting origami snake can sit up on flat surface and rear its head.
