Com To make a swan we need a square paper.
In this case, I have 6 x 6-inch (15 x 15 cm) The color of the paper is different on each side.
In this case the swan will be white inside I begin with that color facing up.
So the corners are up and down.
Fold in half.
Fold in half vertically.
We have this folded edge, rotate it Bring this cut edge to match that folded edge.
Turn it over and repeat.
This edge to the folded edge.
Pick it up and unfold to this position.
We have this edge here… It will be our guideline for the next fold.
We position it like so.
Bring the lower corner up to that point.
We’ll bring this corner down about 2 thirds of the distance.
And make a fold about here.
We will make a mountain fold along the center.
Pull up from the neck.
We visualize this angle… acute angle, not quite 90-degrees Flaten here.
Pull the beak up a little bit.
We can shape the beak to give it more expression.
We have these sections… We can slide our finger in and each one of these tips… …Press them.
That opens this whole area.
When we fill the swan with candy, the two sides might tend to separate.
To prevent that we are going to add a fold.
We separate the wings.
At the central flap, we fold.
That locks the two sides together.
When we fill it with candy, it stays in place.
The two sides do not separate as here.
