This is Alvin with Origami by Aki. I'm going to show you how to make the origami dove using just regular copy paper or origami paper, but it has to be colored on one side. We're going to start with the color side down and just fold it into a triangle. I'm going to fold it back; I'm going to take these two flaps and fold them back again. Flip it over and fold this also back. And then take, so we have these two parts here, we're going to take one and just fold it up like this and do the same thing on the other side. Then, we're going to take this part we just folded and reverse, and inside reverse fold that; and the same thing on this other part again. Do the inside reverse fold. Okay. And this part is going to be the wings; so we can pull up two wings. This part here is the head, we're just going to fold it down in; so, little angle here and do the inside reverse fold for the head. And to make the tail, all we do is we're going to fold this back and fold it up to that line. I'm going to open this up and we're going to take this part and we're just going to push it down like this so the tail comes down like that. And I'm just going to curve the wings. The, the dove is not going to stand up by itself. So, you're going to have to, be hang it. This is Alvin with Origami by Aki and that's how you make the origami dove.
