Two Fold Angelfish
by J.C. Nolan (Jan '95)
Fold from a square of paper colored the same on both sides. If two-color paper is used start with the colored side down for a predominantly white model. A 4" piece of paperproduces a model 4" high.
1/8 1. Please note, the extra symbols are for those who prefer having landmarks. Feel free to estimate. 2. Please note, see previous note.
3. The dotted line is to help show how things line up.
4. Complete the model with a smiley-face.

1. Fold paper in half lengthwise.
2. Fold in half or at least from corner to corner both directions and then unfold.
3. Fold 2 almost water bomb bases along the lines shown. The two bases will both leave a little bit of paper sticking out, in the next diagram you can see one set the other is hidden.
4. Reverse fold both sets of flaps into the model.
5. Pull the flaps out tothe outsides of the model, so that they all lay flat.
6. At this point we will magnify the circled part of the diagram in the next step.
7. Squash fold the flaps outward along the lines shown.
8. Fold down the top set of flaps along the lines shown in the diagram. Valley fold the sides in towards the center, then fold the bottom flaps upwards as shown.
9. This what you should have atthe end of step 8.
10. Fold the top down along the fold lines as shown, to create the head.
12. Finished model from the bottom view.
13. The finished model from the top.
11. Fold the the tail upwards along the lines shown in the diagram
Begin with a square, white side up, with both diagonals precreased.
Valley fold the lower left side tothe horizontal center line, bisecting the angle on the left corner, but crease only where the fold intersects the lower right side. Unfold.
Valley fold the bottom corner to the center of the square, again creasing only on the right side. Unfold.
Valley fold the bottom point up so that the intersection of the edge of the paper and the angle bisector from Step 1 lays on the crease line fromStep 2. Rotate the paper 180°.
Reverse fold the top sides in to the center line, creating a small preliminary base at the top. The next diagrams are enlarged.
Valley fold the sides of the preliminary base at the top to the center line and unfold.
Petal fold on the creases from Step 5.
Valley fold the petal back down.
Valley fold the lower edges tothe center, bisecting the lower point on each side, and unfold. Because of the proportions used in Steps 1-3, the side corners of the paper should lie right at the lower tip of the petal fold at the top when the edges are at the center line.
Valley fold the top point (including the bird base assembly) down along a line that connects the tops of the angle bisectors from Step 8. This creaseshould go across the very tip of the petal fold. Unfold.
Valley fold the entire model in half, right side over left. Rotate the model 90° counterclockwise (the thick point including the petal fold will be on the left).
Valley fold the thick point at the left down to the bottom point and unfold.
Valley fold the thick point at the left down to the intersection of theedge and the angle bisector from Step 8 and unfold.
Double reverse fold the thick, left point inwards on the crease from Step 11 and back out on the crease from Step 12.
Valley fold the upper part of the paper (including the upper part of the thick, petal folded assembly inside) as far upwards as it will naturally fall.
The result. Unfold the top flap back down....
