 Have an Origami Paper In Square Shape

Take one origami paper as per the size you wish to make the origami whale. Further, fold the paper diagonally and make a proper crease. I have also made a beautiful mermaid using origami paper, have a glance at it.

NOTE: If you have single-sided origami paper then do not worry at all just place the colour side facing down however that side will be the outer side of the whale.

First folding

 Fold the Both Side Till Center Line

Now open the paper and see a centerline due to the diagonal fold.  First of all, take the right side of the paper and fold it to the center and similarly do it for the left side as well.

Fold the Bottom Part of the Paper

Once the side folding is done from both sides then you can see the bottom part is popping out. However, fold the bottom part of the paper towards up as you can see in the image below.

Fold the Paper into Equal Half

Now after the bottom part folding you have to fold the whole from the center as you can see below in the image. And then make a proper crease at the sides.

Let’s Create a Tail of the Whale

Now hold the bottom part and then fold the little part of it towards upwards and similarly do the downwards as well as you can see in the image below.

Fold the Tail and Push it Inside 

Now open the folding and then hold the tail and then using your finger to make the tail pointer as shown below and further, push the tail inside. This fold will determine the width of the whale’s body.

Is it Compulsory To Use Origami Paper to Make Whales?

No not really you can actually use regular paper as well especially as a beginner. But if you want the perfect whale to make then you should use origami paper. However, the quality of origami paper is very different than regular paper as it is lighter and soft. 

And most importantly using origami sheets the folding are always easy to compare to a regular paper especially when you are making some other crafts like dragon or so. 

So what I will advise you is as a beginner always use regular or waste papers like old newspaper or so but once you are ready then make use of origami paper then you will see the beauty of your origami whale and all other crafts.
