    Dear Zarana,

    These are the Steps for making origami elephant-

    Step 1: Prepare a square sheet of origami paper. If you don’t have origami paper, you can use any square sheet of paper and trim it into a square.

    Step 2: Fold the paper in half diagonally to create a triangle. Make sure the edges line up neatly and crease the fold.

    Step 3: Unfold the paper and fold it in half diagonally in the opposite direction. Again, make a neat crease and unfold the paper.

    Step 4: Fold the paper in half horizontally, bringing the top edge down to meet the bottom edge. Crease the fold and then unfold the paper.

    Step 5: Fold the paper in half vertically, bringing the left edge over to meet the right edge. Crease the fold and then unfold the paper.

    Step 6: Rotate the paper so that the diagonal creases are in a “X” shape, with the open edges facing up and down.

    Step 7: Fold the top right corner of the paper down towards the center point where the two diagonal creases intersect. Crease the fold.

    Step 8: Repeat the previous step for the top left corner, folding it down towards the center point and creasing the fold.

    Step 9: Fold the bottom half of the paper up, bringing the bottom edge up to meet the center point. Crease the fold.

    Step 10: Fold the bottom left corner up towards the center point. Crease the fold.

    Step 11: Repeat the previous step for the bottom right corner, folding it up towards the center point and creasing the fold.

    Step 12: Fold the left and right sides of the paper inward, bringing them towards the center line. Crease the folds.

    Step 13: Flip the paper over. You will see the elephant’s body taking shape.

    Step 14: Fold down a small triangle at the top to form the elephant’s head. This will be a small portion of the top layer of the paper.

    Step 15: Fold the bottom point up to create the elephant’s tail.

    Step 16: Your origami elephant is complete! You can adjust the folds and shape as needed to make it look more like an elephant.

    Remember to take your time and make clean and precise folds. Enjoy creating your origami elephant!
