If ever you get a chance to watch 'Between The Folds' -- Do so!

It's an incredible film about origami taken to incredible levels --- much like the creation in this article; though IIRC, all the pieces in Between The Folds, were created using a single piece of paper.

This link might work -- looks like it might me the whole PBS film

Not for this swan in particular. There are many Youtube videos on swan-making so I am not sure which video is for this swan.

Here is one:

Okay, thanks. I mostly wanted a source for the little component pieces. My kids will make their own designs once they make a zillion of those, lol.

ETA: I just searched on youtube and found a bunch of tutorials for beginners. There are some pretty cool constructions out there!
