How to Make An Origami Jumping Frog Getting Started Fold one corner diagonally down to the opposite edge, so it will make an X shape out of the creases when you unfold. Cut off the extra rectangle at the bottom to make a square. Open the square back up and fold it backwards, across the intersection of the two diagonal lines. Open the paper again and push in the sides. Form a triangle. Fold the outside corner up to the top point. Fold the other corner up. Fold the new corner in, towards the center line. Fold the other corner in towards the center. Now fold the top corners back out, until the edge is even with the edge underneath. Repeat folding the top corners, except on the other side. Turn the paper over, Fold into the center. It will look like this Fold the outer corners back out, so that they're even with the outside edges. It will look like this Fold the frog in half. Fold along this red line Fold the frog again along the red line matching the blue arrows. Now make your own modifications to the arms and legs to give your frog more spring.
