Step two -Fold it into half, Crease properly and unfold

Step Three-Now fold both the sides to the center. Crease it nicely and unfold again

Step Four– Now fold the paper in half by making a mountain fold. Make sure the top half of the paper end up under the bottom half of the paper. ( You can refer to the origami manuals if you do not understand what’s a mountain fold or a valley fold)

Step Five– make two diagonal folds on the right and left corners.

Step Six – Now make two more folds on both the corners, left as well as right. Crease it properly and unfold.

Step Seven– In the next step you have to make an” inside reverse fold “on both the sides. Inside reverse fold is a common fold used in origami. It is sometimes complex to make and understand but here it can be done easily. ( The easy way to do so is to pry open the paper a bit and press the tip of it down so that it gets tucked between the two sides of the paper)

Step Eight – Now repeat the step seven again on the left side. One more time you have to pry open the paper. Push the tip downwards and close the paper back up.

Step Nine – after putting all this effort of folding here and there, now we open the paper complete.

Step Ten– fold both the sides so that they meet in the center.

Step Eleven – Now fold the paper in half, crease it properly and unfold.

Step Twelve– Rotate the paper to make it horizontal. Now what comes out is he outline of your lips.

Now to see the lips move we have to ensure that all folds were right specially the valley and the mountain fold. The folds on the outer side are valley folds and the inner folds are mountain folds. Now if you have done all the folds rightly your red lips should look perfect now. This origami art makes it so attractive and perfect and you can use these origami kissing lips to any good use.
