This traditional origami fox can be made quite beautiful with just a few modifications. Combined with the correct color of paper, it is quite handsome!






Shown above are 3 versions of the origami fox. The yellow fox is truly the traditional origami fox. It is quite simple and looks a bit blocky. The blue fox is a little more elegant with the V-shaped chest. Because of the angle, the ears look better too. The red fox is even more elegant with the color change at the front of the chest. Interestingly, you can achieve these variations with one or two folds of the paper.
Choose a fox and let’s start folding!

For the traditional (yellow) fox, make the fold straight, about 1/4 of the way from the edge.
For the variation fox and the two-tone fox, make the fold at an angle so it tapers from the wide head to the narrow feet.
