Toadly Awesome, Un-Frog-Gettable and Quite Ribbitting Origami Frogs

I’ve been toad that I wasn’t using enough puns on this post titles so here’s a whole bunch.

This post is all about origami frogs and possibly some toads as well.

I just learned that Flickr has an option to embed Flickr photos on websites. In previous posts I’ve been saving the images, resizing them, compressing them and uploading them to this website. Doing it that way ends up taking a really long time every time I make one of these posts.

This time I’m trying the Flickr embed method. Hopefully it should take a lot less time to put together one of these posts.

Let’s get started with Sebastien Limet’s famous Climb Peaks model.

This model is Satoshi Kamiya’s tree frog but depending on what kind of paper you use you can easily change it into something like this poison dart frog.

Satoshi Kamiya’s tree frog looks quite different if you use different coloured paper. The red eyes are a really nice little touch here too.

That’s it for this post. I can definitely confirm that using the Flickr embed code takes way less time than saving each image individually. Some of these images seem to have the embed code disabled but even still, the majority of them work and that’s going to save me a huge amount of time which is awesome.

If you try folding any of these frogs share a photo in the comments so we can take a look!

Origami Instructions — How to Make an Origami Frog

The origami frog looks neat and can also be made to hop.

Origami Frog

You can view our video below, or if you prefer, our photo instructions below that:

Start with a square piece of origami paper (green makes convincing frogs).  Now make a square base. 

Next insert your finger in one of the pockets in the
square base.

Move the pocket around to the front, then flatten and crease it. 

This classic origami move is known as the squash fold

     

 

Photo below shows one of the squash folds completed.  Now perform the squash fold three more times…

 

…until the piece has the diamond shape shown below. 

Next fold and unfold the corners as shown, to make creasemarks. 

 

Next comes another classic origami move, the petal fold.

 

The next photo shows the completed petal fold. 

Now
perform the petal fold three more times (on the other three faces of the
diamond), to create the origami frog base.

      

 

 

Fold the frog base down the centerline as shown.  Then fold the lower edges of one layer into the centerline.

   

 

 

Now fold edge A to edge B as shown by the arrow. 

The perform the previous three steps again, 3 more times, until the piece looks
like below right.

 

 

Now it’s time to turn the tadpole into a frog! 

I like to pre-crease the leg, then use reverse folds
to create the two front legs (reverse folds are explained
here).

 

Now use reverse folds to stretch the back legs. 

Apply reverse folds again, twice each on the front and back pairs of legs, as
shown in the photos below. 

 

 

Now you’ll need to blow where shown, to inflate the
frog’s body.

 

 

You can make the frog hop for short distances by
pressing on the rear of the body, then sliding your finger off onto the table:

 

O-ribit-gami!

Origami Frogs Tutorial — Origami for Kids

How about maing some colorful origami frogs that can jump? Just follow this simple tutorial and you are ready to go!

This origami for kids project is fairly simple to make and kids will have lots of fun playing with these once they are done!

How to make an origami frog tutorial

What you’ll need

  • a square piece of paper
  • googly eyes (optional)
  • red paper for tongue (optional)

 

Start by folding the paper diagonally (both diagonals). Unfold and fold to half. Unfold.

Next is a somewhat tricky part for young soon to be origami masters – you have to fold the parts that are marked with red dots on the picture above towards the center – getting them in the position showed in the photo above (you’ll get a triangle shape).

Next fold the corner of the triangle (marked with a blue spot) towards the top of the triangle. Do the same with the other corner.

 

You should now have the shape displayed on the first picture above. Fold the right corner of the newly shaped square (marked with the red dot) towards the center of the square. Do the same with the other corner.

Flip the frog. We have a triangle again (sorry no picture of that one). Grab the corner of the triangle (marked with the blue dot) and fold it inwards as shown on the picture above. Do the same with the other corner.

Grab the spot that’s marked with the red spot on the image above and fold it outwards. Do the same with the other side. Flip it over – it’s slowly starting to look like a frog isn’t it?

Last part is a bit tricky but if you want to make your frog jump it’s a must. You’ll have to fold the back of the frog twice on places indicated with the blue and red line.

Position the frog as it’s shown on the 4th image (above) and fold it backwards along the red line (you can help yourself with the ruler or a credit card etc…). It will now look like the image number 4 (and 5 if you flip it). Now fold the frog along the blue line (fold it forwards).

All done!

To make these frogs even cuter be sure to glue on some googly eyes and stick a tongue in their mouths!
If you press the back part of the frog they will jump!

Thanks for teaching me how to make an Origami Frog! I really enjoyed learning how to do it step by step! (Other sites just have videos, but to tell you the truth, videos go too fast for me, step by step with pictures are WAY better than videos, and you guys do that so I’m very glad about that!) Thanks again for teaching me how to make an awesome, realistic Origami Frog! I always use this site for Origami! (I have it bookmarked!)

Origami Frog Base

    Origami Frog Base Instructions

  1. Start with a square sheet of paper with color-side facing up.
    Fold and unfold along the diagonal in both directions to get an X crease.
  2. Flip the paper over so white-side is facing up.
    Fold in half from left-to-right. Unfold.
  3. Fold the paper in half from top to bottom.
  4. Push the left and right corners inwards towards one another until new flaps of paper are formed in front and behind.
  5. Swivel the flaps to the side. Follow the red dot to visualize the procedure. This is also called the preliminary base.
  6. Bring one of the flaps towards you so it is point up (perpendicular to the rest of the model).
  7. Perform the squash fold (pry open the layers as you press down evenly).
  8. Repeat the squash fold on the remaining 3 flaps.
  9. Perform the petal fold (fold and unfold the left-edge and right-edge of the paper inwards towards the central crease.)
  10. Lift the top layer (red dot) as you refold the crease made from step 9. Steps 10b & 10c show transition steps.
  11. Repeat on the remaining 3 sides.
  12. Repeat step 9 (lift flap along crease made in step 10).
  13. Done!

As the name implies, the frog base is used in making the traditional origami frog. If you fold down the small flap (right image), then the model can be made into the traditional iris flower. Lillian Oppenheimer, co-founder of The Friends of The Origami Center of America which later became OrigamiUSA, used to designate the model on the left as the frog base and the model on the right as the lily base. However, most people do not distinguish between the two forms in such a specific manner. The base is can be called frog base, lily base, or frog-lily base.

Origami Instructions | Origami Way

These origami instructions and diagrams were written to be as easy to follow as possible. I recommend using origami paper if you want them to turn out nice, but regular paper will do fine for simple diagrams.

For those who are unfamiliar with origami, it is the art of folding paper into a sculpture without using glue or scissors. This may seem like a daunting task, but it’s entirely possible to fold paper into very sophistocated and beautiful designs.

Most origami instructions and diagrams here will be easy in order to not discourage you, but feel free to tackle the harder ones if you feel daring want some challenge.

There are many shapes to choose from so pick a category from the menu. Once you select a shape, you’ll be presented with the origami instructions and diagrams for it. Have fun:)
