# Beautiful blue dragon origami, simple origami for beginners

Many people want to find a scheme of origami dragon, because inall fairy tales and legends they act as both good and evil characters. Our origami dragon is the same as in the ancient paintings: proud and unapproachable and at the same time very elegant. In many cultures, the dragon is a symbol of wisdom. There are various origami schemes, how to make a dragon. There are huge modular figures and solid, composite of several sheets; simple and light dragons for beginners, as well as complex and moving for more skillful masters. If you had previously encountered the world of origami, then probably you did a classic crane. He will be the foundation of our dragon. If not, then it's okay - our origami from paper dragon is simple and affordable. Take a piece of paper and make a square. Fold the square in two diagonals, then unfold. Fold the square in half, rotate the part 90 degrees and again fold it in half. Completely unfold the square. Now the square has four fold lines. Put the square in front of you in such a way that one of the diagonals was directed towards you. To the lower half of this diagonal, we fold the right and left parts of the second diagonal. Close the folds of the upper half of the diagonal. We have a small square. Without changing the position of the part, bend the right and left corners to the center line. Bend the top corner so that it turned outisosceles triangle. Then turn the work to a small square from the third step. We see that on the square there are three fold lines that form an inscribed isosceles triangle. The square lies so that the vertex of the inscribed isosceles triangle is directed towards you, and the bottom is on top. The bottom corner of the square is lifted up. Work is done only on the surface layer. The fold line coincides with the base line of the inscribed isosceles triangle, which we discussed in the previous steps. The right and left corners will turn around and lie down to the center line. On the obverse side, a rhombus turned out, although on the right side - while the square is preserved. We turn the work around. Similarly, raise the bottom corner to make a rhombus. The upper corner of the diamond is lowered to the bottom. We turn the work and perform the operation again. It was a quadrilateral with two short and two long sides. Bend the upper corner to the point of intersection of the twofold lines. We return the corner to its former position. Turn the work to the other side, again bend the corner to the point of intersection and return to its original position. We unfold the whole structure as shown in the photo. We have a three-dimensional small table on massive legs. After this, add the "table" in the manner shown in the photo. The "table-top" (the smaller of the visible squares) is pressed inward. We have a pentagon. Its only acute angle is directed towards you. Carefully bend the upper corners. Raise the bottom corner of the face layer upwards. We again got a rhombus. Turn the work, turn the lower corner upwards, so that the rhombus turns out on this side too. Without changing the position of the figure, we take the right corner of the diamond and "turn the page". Then we turn the work over to the wrong side and again "turn the page". In the new diamond the lower corner is solid, and the upper one is cut in half. Bend the bottom corner to the top. We turn the work and do the same. We have obtained an isosceles triangle. Again we work only with the face layer. One of the sides is bent to the base. We return it to its original position from the previous step. Now we bend the second side to the base, unbend. From the fold lines obtained, we add the "hare's ear" with the cut below. We bend the "hare's ear" to the right. We turn the work and do the same "hare's ear", while bending it to the left. We raise the work, we hold it by the "hare ears" with our left hand. Right hand "turn the page", open the isosceles triangle. Hold on to its upper corner (only the top layer) and lower it down. Again, bend the figure in half - it turned out "tail". We take the lower corner of the "tail" without opening it. In this case, the upper part of it is unfolded. Raise the bottom corner until the "tail" is pointing to the right, as pictured in the photo. Now the workpiece can stand on the table. "Hare ears" also bend to the right. We perform a similar operation with the "left tail": unfold the triangle, lower the upper corner down, bend the "tail" in half and raise it until it is directed to the left. "Hare ears" also bend to the right. We perform a similar operation with the "left tail": unfold the triangle, lower the upper corner down, bend the "tail" in half and raise it until it is directed to the left. Put the workpiece on the table and bend the left "tail" in half to make it even thinner - we work first with the surface (facial) side, then turn the work and bend the "tail" on the wrong side. We put the external halves as shown in the photo. The same caulking is necessary to the right "tail". We bend the "rabbit ears" perpendicular to the "tails" - now these are the wings. Bend the paws, as pictured in the photo. The "tail" from the side of the bent paws will be the neck of the dragon. To do this, bend the "tail" upward, pressing inwards. The neck should look like the picture on the photo. Part of the neck bend for the head. The part that we left for the head, Fold again, dividing into two unequal parts: closer to the neck - short, nose - longer. We bend the nose back - so that the dragon has a tuft. We bend the wings up. At the tips of the wings we make two folds with a "zipper". On the lines obtained, we form a claw on each wing. Our blue dragon of happiness is ready.
