This is Alvin with Origami by Aki. I'm going to show you how to make the origami rabbit. We're going to use regular origami paper because it has to have color on both sides of the sheet in order to get the tail at the end which you'll see. So, we're going to start with the color side and you put that down, white side on top. I'm going to just fold it in a rectangle, open that up and then fold both sides to that line. This is actually called a covered fold. You can open it up, make a triangle in both directions and then go back to that covered fold and we're going to fold these two corners down, like this. Open that up and then we're going to bring this out so it makes like a big arrow here. Okay. So, from this arrow part, we're going to fold this part down, just make the point a little bit more blunt and we're going to open this up, bring this two corners up like this. Okay. Once you opened that up, and now we're going to take this part and bring it down so you have this little part that comes down like this; this is going to be the rabbit's ears here. So, to do that, we're actually just folding this down so it comes down to a point. So, we went from here, fold it like that and you're going to fold this in half, okay. Now, the, this is going to be the body, we're going to take this all the way through so it comes through like that and we're going to bring it back to the other direction. We're going to have a go through this part where the ears come out. It's going to come out in an angle; so it's, it's like a 45 degree angle there. To make the nose, we're just going to push this little part down like that. Okay. And now, we're going to make the ears a little bit smaller. To do that, I'm going to take this little flap and just bring it forward like this. So, we went from here and just brought forward; okay. I'm going to take this little flap to put inside that pocket. You're going to flip it over and do the same thing on this side and we'll just bring this forward and then the little flap, we're going to put inside this pocket. Okay. And the ears you want to open them up a little bit like that. Now, this part here we're going to just curve it under, just following where the ears are. So, just folding it down to about here. Flip it over, do the same thing, just take this, follow, just fold it under where the ears are. Now, to give it the little white tail, we're going to fold, first up by folding back everything like that and then bring it back up. This part is going to go down to reveal our tail. Do the same thing on the other side. Okay. Now, this part from the tail is going to go down slightly and come back out. So, we're just going to bring it out like that. So, to do that, I basically just start from here, then, push it down, brought it out in an angle like that. To finish it, I'm going to fold part of the tail down and angle and this is going to keep the tail intact here. So, an angle like that; so, we can open this up, just fold this down and this part here we're just going to reverse the fold so it does the same thing on the other side. Okay. And he's going to stand up, like he's staying on his hind legs here and then you want to just kind of open up the, the ears a little bit, give it more of a 3-D effect. And so he stands up. This is Alvin with Origami by Aki and that's how you make the origami rabbit.
