Origami Inside Reverse Fold

how to do origami

In origami, the inside reverse fold is shown with:
    a mountain fold line ("dash-dot-dot" line)
    a broad arrow ("push in" action), and
    a closed (black) arrow indicating directionality.

This fold changes the direction of the paper. It is used regularly when making the head of a bird or the feet of an animal. It is more stable and more refined than the basic valley and mountain folds.

To make an inside-reverse fold:

a) Make a valley fold along the line indicated (the final fold will be
    a mountain fold but make a valley fold for now).
b) Unfold.
c) Push the top corner of in between the layers of the paper.
d) Reinforce the creases by pressing firmly.
