Guest Post ~ Origami Cat / Eb

Hello ! My name is Eb and I am from the blog the Fearless Fox. 

First of all I would like to apologise for not posting when I should have. I have been very busy and I felt so guilty for not posting then. But I have a post now so hopefully it makes up for it a bit ! Sorry Jessica ! 

Today I am going to show you how to make an origami cat. This was originally going to be a dog but then it got mixed up and looked more like a cat ! Either way I know Jessica has cats and dogs which I thought made it quite suiting ! 

Hopefully it should be quite clear although I do apologise if you are unable to understand it as it is difficult to explain which corners go where and stuff ! I'll answer any questions if needed !

1 Fold the paper in half one way, and then the other. This means that the piece of paper is separated in to quarters.

2 Open the paper out fully and take the top two corners of the squares and fold them in to the middle. 

3 Take these corners again and fold them out to meet the fold on the edge. Do this to both sides of the paper.

4 This photo is pretty hard to see but you basically need to fold the corner which I am pointing to up to meet the other edge. Do this to both the sides of the paper.

5 Then fold the two edges together to meet in the middle.

6 Open it out and it should look like this !

7 Fold the two corners back up again like you did in step 4.

8 Turn the paper over and then fold the two sides inwards to meet at the middle.

9 Then fold the two bottom corners under the piece so they are on the other side.

10 Flip the piece over and it should look something like this. 

11 Fold the top triangle under approximately where the top of the ears are.

12 Fold the piece in half.

13 Keeping the paper at the same angle as previously fold the top right corner down as shown. Mine ripped a bit when I did this but it isn't visible. You might find a way around it anyway !

14 This step is a weird one.  I just did a variety of folds across the head and played about a bit until I got it how I wanted. You basically need to make a fold across where the ears are. And make sure the triangle where the neck is stays in the gap kind of ! Haha. I hate explaining origami !

15 Fold the tail in as shown !

16 Add on a little nose and even eyes if you like !

And your little cat, or dog if you like (!) is finished. I hope you like it and if you give it a go let me know. This is really cute just to stand on a bedside table and is quite quick ! I think it looks really cute and to be honest my photos give it no justice.

Thank you Jessica for letting me post on your blog and again I apologise for being late ! Have fun !



  1. That is really neat! Did you make it up as you went? If so, you are really crafty!

    1. Thank you :) It would be great to say I did but nope I didn't. I made part of it up I suppose from about step 14 onwards but it's not much ! Glad you enjoyed it :)

    1. Ahhhh ! Thank you Jessica ! Even though I missed my day I am glad to be able to help out and fill in a gap for your readers ! I had great fun with only a bit of frustration when it went a bit wrong ! You'll have to send me a picture if you do try it out !
