Create the effect of a beautiful aquatic creature swimming effortlessly through the ocean waves with these Ethereal Origami Goldfish. Few things are more inspiring to our creativity than the natural world, and this tutorial will show you how to create a flawless paper folding craft in the form of a beautiful golden fish. Or, you can add a little variety by using a plethora of different paper colors to create a lovely origami aquarium of beautiful sea creatures. The sky (or in this case, the ocean floor) is truly the limit with this craft, so crack those knuckles, limber up those fingers, and get your fold on.

Oh this paper goldfish is super cute! Too bad my students are too young to do this origami goldfish. Otherwise, this would be an interesting craft for my craft class next semester. But Id love to try to do this tutorial myself, I think the goldfish would be a nice centerpiece for my desk.

So cute! I bet these would make great earrings.
