Origami Dolphin Step by Step

Sea inhabitants can be depicted in origami. Previously, we already made an origami shark, this time, a more friendly creature — a dolphin.

As for the most part, we will work with square-shaped paper. Prepare paper of the desired color and size.

Fold in half, joining the corners to form a triangle.

Open and then connect the other two corners. With these actions, we outlined the cross folds.

Next, we work with the created triangle.

Starting at the left corner, fold the side up, marking the fold.

Straighten back and fold the right side in the same way.

Straighten the paper. In the lower corner area, we see intersecting folds.

Press the intersection area and make the corner outward.

Flatten this corner, creating a dolphin’s fin.

Flip over to the other side and repeat all the previous steps, since we need to make exactly the same fin on this side.

Starting at the corner, fold the side up.

Straighten and bend the opposite side.

Make a corner outward and press the fold in its middle.

The paper is doubled at the bottom, open it in that area.

Bend up the bottom corner to the very middle of the rhombus.

Make a small step and bend back.

And again bend forward, but already a very small tip.

Fold the paper in half. It is already clear that we are getting a dolphin.
