An Origami Fox

Updated on January 12, 2015

Foxes are depicted as a symbol of cunning and trickery, making them a nuisance to the story, a misunderstood hero, or a devious villain. In Chinese folklore, literature, and mythology, in which, depending on the tale, they can be a sign of good or a bad omen.

Today I will show you how to make an origami fox, step-by-step, with pictures!

Materials Needed

  • A Square piece of paper
  • Pen or Pencil for decoration (optional)

If you don't have any origami paper laying around, you can always cut regular sized paper into a square. For easy folds, it's best to use soft paper, none of those construction paper.
