origami flower tutorial
Hello bloggers something a little different for you today. Not a card in sight but a bit of origami to wet your appetite.
fold your paper in half diagonally, remembering to rub over the fold line with
your fingers. Take
the left corner and fold it up to the top point of the triangle repeat with the
right hand side, remembering to crease the folds with your fingers. It now
resembles a diamond shape.
Now fold down the flaps on each side. Take the left
hand triangle and fold it in half into itself, then repeat on the other side. Now curve the bottom edges round to the center and add a spot of glue to hold into place.
Place a paperclip to hold whilst glue sets.
you have the basics to make a single petal you can continue to make more and then
attach together to form a flower bud.
This is one flower bud with five petals.
Happy Crafting xx Hazel
Origami Flower Instructions
Resources: paper 4” square (photo copy paper will be fine as you don’t want it too thick so it will fold easily).
Important note: rub over each fold line with your fingers to reinforce it as you go through each fold.
With your square piece of paper in front of you, you are ready to begin
Next take the triangle from left hand side and fold it back on it’s self so that it touches the bottom edge of the diamond. Now repeat on the other side. Open up the triangle at the edge by placing your finger between the two pieces of paper. This will then open the area out and it can then be flattened by falling into the folds that already exist. Repeat on the other side.
These can be made up and made into room decoration or window displays
