Origami Animals: Frog

These funny origami frogs were designed by Toshikazu Kawasaki, using the box pleating style.
Origami Animals: Frog
According to the definition in the Origami USA glossary, "box pleating is a style of folding characterized by all folds running at multiples of 45˚, with the majority running at multiples of 0˚ and 90˚ on a regular grid". It usually means that you have to start by pre-creasing a grid, and then collapse.

The instructions to fold the frogs can be found in the book Origami Dream World - Flowers and Animals, by Toshikazu Kawasaki.
I used a green 9" (225mm) square of Pacon Paper, and a 6" (150 mm) square of red thin washi paper.
