    • 1). Orient your square of paper so that it faces you like a diamond. For these instructions, the top point will be Point A, moving clockwise, followed by Points B, C and D. Likewise, the top left side will be Side 1. Again moving clockwise, the following sides will be Sides 2, 3 and 4.

    • 2). Fold Side 1 to Side 3. Crease and unfold. Fold Side 2 to Side 4. Crease and unfold.

    • 3). Fold Point A to Point C. Crease and unfold. Fold Point B to Point D. Crease and unfold.

    • 4). Fold Point A to Point C. Push in on Points B and D, following the natural direction of the creases, turning your project into a square. This is known as a square base and is another standard origami base.

    • 5). Fold the left top flap over to the right while flattening it down in the middle. This is known as a squash fold. Unfold the flap of the squash fold and flatten in upwards. This is known as a petal fold.

    • 6). Repeat Step 5 with the other three flaps. You now have a complete frog base.
