HOW TO MAKE A SQUARE FROM ANY RECTANGLE

Most origami begins with a square sheet of paper. You can make it yourself from any rectangle. Look around for copy paper, magazines, advertisements, gift wrap, stationery or any other paper you have in the house. Then follow the diagrams to make your square.

 
 

 
  1 Place the rectangle side ways on. Valley fold the
left-hand side up to meet
the top, thereby making a triangle.
2 Cut along the side of the triangle. 3 Save the rectangular
piece of paper to make smaller squares.
4 Open out the triangle into the square.
