How to fold a bird out of paper
Take a square piece of paper.

Bend the sheet along it, iron the fold. He should be on the right.
Divide the width of the triangle into 4 equal parts by making small marks. Draw a vertical line through the first point from the fold.
Fold the top layer of paper along this line to the right. Iron the bend.
Draw a horizontal line dividing the figure in half.
Fold the blank over it.
Bend one of the moving triangles upward at an angle to the left. Its corner should protrude 2.5-3 cm above the figure. This is the wing of the bird.
Bend the second triangle for the craft, slightly changing the angle of inclination.
To make the bird’s head, bend the right corner of the craft down, as shown in the photo.
