Instructions to make Bouncing Paper Fog

Making this origami-style craft is easy as you simply need to focus on the fold. We have broken down the steps so that you can follow them with ease.

Step 1: Take the ruler and draw a 10 centimetre line on dark green paper.

Make sure the lines are not too straight, draw it in such a way that one end is broader than the other.

Step 2: Now cut the light green paper as shown below.

Step 3: Now apply glue to the dark green strips which you already created at step 1.

Step 4: Stick the dark green strips on light green paper as shown below.

Step 5: Make sure you get rid of uneven edges (Refer the screenshot below).

Step 6: Take the yellow paper and draw a frog using pencil and then cut it as shown below.

Step 7: Take the dark green paper and draw a small circle using the protractor (We will use it to give the skin color).

See the screenshot below for getting the idea.

Step 8: Cut the circled green paper and stick it to frog’s body as show below.

Step 9: Don’t forget to do the same with black and white paper to give a nice looking Eye. See the below image to get an idea.

Step 10: Now take a red color paper or any color paper of your choice and roll it as shown below for creating tongue (See the below image to get an idea).

Step 11: Take the left out light green paper and cut 2 strips (See the image below).

Step 12: Attach the strips in “L” form (see below).

Step 13: Now fold the strip one over the other so we get a spring like effect.

Step 14: Put glue on both sides of spring and attach one end to the frog and the other end to the leaf that we created (Just as below).

Your paper frog is ready and should look like this.
