Kayleigh's Crafts - Make Your Own Origami Flower









Hello!


Today we're making Tulip style origami flowers. 

To make these yourself, have a look at our YouTube video or follow this step-by-step guide.  


You will need:

  • x2 square pieces of paper of exactly the same size
  • Something to be your stem (pipe cleaner, lolly stick, straw etc)
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick


Step 1:

Take your square and fold it diagonally in half, corner to corner. 




Step 2:

Point your triangle upwards and fold in half from bottom corner to bottom corner. Then open it back out.  




Step 3:

Fold one bottom corner upwards from the middle of the triangle (where the line is) towards the top point to just past the halfway point between the bottom point and the top point. 




Step 4:

Repeat step 3 with the other side. 




Step 5:

Fold the corner at the side, no more than 1cm in. 




Step 6:

Repeat step 5 with the other side. 



Turn your flower over and it should look like this:



Step 7:

Following steps 1 to 6, make another flower.

Step 8:

Take your glue stick and glue the folded side of one of the flowers.  

Place your stem, (for our flower we used a pipe cleaner but you could use a straw or a lolly stick) in the centre of the flower. 



Glue the folded side of the second flower and stick this over your stem and other flower. 




When you're done... 

Have a look around your house to see what other things you could use to make your flowers. We've tried with a magazine and a newspaper but you could try with coloured paper as well. Let us know what else could be used by commenting below.
