Follow the instructions below to make this Origami Panda Body
The origami panda body is the second part of the origami panda figure. The origami panda head is required to complete the figure.
I decided to design this origami panda body because I wanted something cute to match the adorable face. This body puts the panda in a seated position with its arms extended, kind of like a cub raising his head from the ground to see what its siblings are up to.
This origami panda body is not difficult, but there are a few folding and unfolding steps, and one awkward fold that comes with very clear instructions. Overall, this is pretty easy and shouldn’t take too long.
Step 2: Fold upper left corner to the bottom right corner, then unfold.
Step 3: Fold upper right corner to the bottom left corner, then unfold.
Step 4: Fold the top half backwards (at where the diagonal creases meet at an “X”), then unfold.
Step 5: Poke the center of the paper so that it pops in.
Step 6: Bring the left and right creases together to collapse the paper into a triangle.
Step 7: Fold the bottom edge of the triangle to the upper left edge, then unfold.
Step 8: Now fold the bottom to the upper right edge, then unfold.
Step 9: Mountain fold the figure in half, then unfold.
Step 10: Open the bottom lip of the upper layer, bending at the center of the triangle, and bring the corners of both sides together as shown.
Step 11: Lay the protruding flap down to the right side.
Step 12: Open the right flap and fold the bottom to the upper left edge along the crease.
Step 13: Turn the figure over.
Step 14: Open the left flap and fold it on top of the previous flap.
Step 15: Fold the right corner to the left corner.
Step 16: Fold the upper layer creasing between the lower right corner and the corner where the black and white layers meet.
Step 17: Turn the figure over.
Step 18: Repeat step 16 on this side, essentially folding the corner of this layer on top of the previous flap.
Step 19: Rotate the figure as shown.
Step 20: Fold the leg up as shown.
Step 21: Fold a small portion of the leg as shown.
Step 22: Perform the same folds to the other leg.
Step 23: Unfold the legs halfway to put the panda in a sitting position.
Step 24: Fold the tips of the feet up.
Step 25: Attach the Origami Panda head. Now you have a cute sitting panda!
