    Flip over once again, and fold the two edges toward you so they meet each other. The top of your rectangle will fold down to form a triangle.

    Fold the bottom of the paper up so that its edge meets the bottom of your triangle. Fold the two corners of the triangle up to form the "front legs" of the frog.
