Easy Origami Dog

This Easy Origami Dog is made with two sheets of square paper. One sheet will be used to make the head and the second sheet will be used to make the body of the dog. It is a really simple model to fold but it is also quite rewarding because it is really cute.

  • Other origami animals in this web site include dogs, cats, rabbits, foxes, birds, various insects, and more. Most of these diagrams are “traditional” which means that they have been invented many years ago – so many years that no one knows who was the original creator. In a way, it is inspirational that, without internet and easy communication, early origami artists were able to create so many things. Maybe you can create some origami models too.
