Origami Snapping Crow Step 1: Fold a blintz base. This is a commonly used base in origami and we've created a separate page for it.

You should have this to start with.




Origami Snapping Crow Step 2: Flip paper over. Fold all 4 corners to the center.





Origami Snapping Crow Step 3: Now crease the right, left and bottom center lines into valley folds. And crease the top center line into a mountain fold.

Refer to our page on valley and mountain folds if you need to.







Origami Snapping Crow Step 4: Fold the paper in half on the horizontal axis. The top square will form the "head".





You can make the crow snap by moving the "wings" sideways in small motions.



Here's the video of the origami snapping crow in action!
