So you want to make a dragon head out of paper and you are not sure how to do it, I'm going to teach you how to do that right now. Here is the square paper and what we are going to do is we are going to kind of fold it over like so and fold it back up. What we are doing here is we are going into our square base which if you don't know what the square base is you will after I have done this. Fold it like so and I'm just going to cut the corners here and you shouldn't do this. You should actually fold it the opposite way but I am lazy. So now what we are going to do is we are going to open this up and fold this along this diagonal line that we have already made here, fold this down and back over until we are in our square base like so. Now what we are going to do from here is we are going to fold our corners, our bottom corner up like so and then we are going to take and fold this in to our center line like so. It is almost like we are doing a petal fold but it is not really a petal fold because we are just going to stop. There we go. Flip it over and do the same thing here, this side up and rip our paper and then fold it down to the center here and do it the same way here. Now what we are going to do is we are going to take our triangle and fold it up and fold it back down and over the sides here and that is going to be the sides of the mouth and basically from here we are just going to kind of take it and put our hands and fold these pieces down and hold these side pieces in place. We will slide our hands into here and kind of squish it out a little bit and the same thing over here and squish it out a little bit. It is going to kind of take on its own form at that point and kind of give the head a little shape and there we go a little dragon head or lizard head. If you have got a Sharpie you can go in there and let's see if I have got one, here we go, you can go in there and give him some eyes. Here we go,there we go, fearsome, rarr, dragon head, enjoy.
