The origami face changer is a really fun toy to make. One piece of origami allows you to display many faces, which can be customized to your heart's content.

Step 1

Make a valley fold along one diagonal, then unfold and make another valley fold along the other diagonal:

Step 2

Now flip the piece over. Fold corner A towards the center as shown:

Step 3

Now unfold, and flip the piece over again:

Step 4

Next, fold the edge AB to the centerline of the square as shown:

Step 5

Repeat the last step (1) folds on the opposite side of the square, as shown below...

Step 6

And unfold

Step 7

Now it's time to transform the paper into your face changer! Using your fingers and thumbs, push gently on the middle of each edge of the square, as shown. This will cause the paper to collapse along the crease lines that we made earlier:

Step 8

now you need to fold the flaps down

Step 9

Now you'll need to do some drawing. In each of the 4 corners, the flaps have 3 positions (basic/up/down or basic/left right). So you can have 4 x 3 = 12 possible faces. On the top, draw 3 types of hair. On the bottom, draw 3 different types of nose / mouth / chin / neck. On the left and right sides, draw 3 different types of eyes / ears. Below, we have folded down the left flap, to make our face changer wink ;)
