Here are the instructions:

  • First, cut a sheet of paper into a 14cm x 14cm square. Alternatively, you can choose a larger size (20 cm x 20 cm) or a smaller one (10 cm x 10 cm);
  • Then fold it in half on each side to get the fold marks;
  • Then turn the sheet over to fold the lower corners into the center of the square;
  • After turning the sheet over again, repeat the procedure for the upper corners;
  • Turn the sheet over again to bring the corners of the center of the square vertically;
  • Now fold the top and bottom corners to the center of the origami;
  • Finally, take a black marker to draw the eyes and nose of this little koala!
