|Start with a square paper.|
|Fold diagonally from corner to corner and crease.|
|Sometimes this fold is difficult, so I tell students to pinch the corner with one |
hand and use the other hand to flatten the fold from the corner down.
|Fold in half again from corner to corner and crease.|
|Open last fold and notice line dividing triangle in half. |
Turn the paper so that it acts as an arrow and points to the belly.
|To prevent over folding, I tell students to place one finger |
at the top of the line and use the other to grab the top right corner.
|Pull the top right corner down to the belly |
leaving a nice triangle shape the ear and cheek.
|Repeat on the other side. I tell students to notice that |
they should now have three arrows pointing towards their belly.
|I tell students that dogs or cats do not normally have pointy chins|
so we need to fold the bottom point up to leave a flat chin instead.
This is the dog.
|To make the cat, simply flip the paper over and upside down.|
