Origami Kite Base Instructions

  1. Take a square sheet of paper and position it so it looks like a diamond (a square balancing on one of its corners).
  2. Fold the paper in half from right to left. Unfold.
  3. Fold the bottom-right and bottom-left edges of the paper to align with the central crease made in step 1. Done! This is the completed origami kite base.

Different origami models sometimes start with the same few folds even though the end results might be totally different from one another. Instead of describing the folds over and over again, an author may choose to simply say "start with Origami Base 1". The instructions for Origami Base 1 would have already been given in an earlier page of the book.

Some authors may have a battery of bases which are specific for the origami models in their book. However, there are only a handful of common origami bases universally recognized by the origami community.

This page shows you how to make an origami kite-base. It is one of the easiest origami bases. It is used in making the traditional origami swan.
