9. Fold the bottom left side towards the center.
10. Fold the bottom tip towards the top of the model.
11. Fold back the top of the tip to form the head.
12. Fold the model in two.
13. Lift the neck of the swan and mark the fold.
14. Lift the head of the swan and mark the fold.
15. Your swan is complete!
16. And ready to go swimming!
Once you have folded your first origami swan, try to fold it with a smaller sheet of paper, to create baby swans. You can then arrange the mother swan with its little swans.
