These swans are are a lot easier to make then it looks - there is one basic step that is repeated, then used to build the swan. This guy was made with wrapping paper, but any thin paper can be used.

Homigosh! I love it! And those colors are fabulous. Can you make other shapes too, not just swans?

There are some books (like this one http://www.amazon.com/3D-Origami-Step---Step-Illustrations/dp/4889960570/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1285874234&sr=1-1) that give designs for all sorts of shapes with the same basic piece. I'm going to try a penguin next!

It looks like exactly the same thing! I hadn't seen that site before but it looks like a great resource for instructions and diagrams!
