How to Fold an Easy Origami Peacock

How to Fold an Easy Origami Peacock post image

With this charming origami peacock Evi Binzinger (Germany)  shows us an example of the imaginative possibilities of a traditional origami model.  This peacock model shown here is based on the classic paper toy called “cootie catcher”, featured here in a previous post.

What Evi has done is to modify one of the corners of the model to make it look like a bird, and then she visualized the other three corners as the bird’s plumage.

Simple and masterful!

This video shows how to fold this peacock model.

Tip: It could be seen as a turkey and used as a Thanksgiving table decoration as well!

      Evi Binzinger has great talent for seeing new figures in basic folds.
