  9. Rotate the figure like this, take the top point...
  10. ...and fold it down, overlapping the two halves of the figure.
  11. Fold the figure along the line shown in the picture to get a wing (just the top layer of paper). And repeat the operation on the other side to make the second wing.
  12. Form the beak by bending the left tip, along the line.
  13. Using scissors, lightly cut the wings as indicated to form feathers and give more volume to your bird.
