Hey crafty friends I’m back with another week of origami love. This flower is the simplest thing I have ever made and it so pretty. Actually origami is paper craft without any use of secondary material. But with time beauty and creativity gave it a whole new meaning.
This origami flower has no name you can call it whatever you like! It requires constructing petals and gluing them together to have your very own colorful flower. I used my flower as a bulletin board decor, you can make these flowers for to celebrate a girl’s birthday with flowers theme and also make birthday caps with it. Another good idea would be to make 8 such flowers and glue them together to make a fancy decorative ball.
- Take a square paper (9 1/2 cm x 9 1/2 cm) and fold it in half such that the bottom corner folds onto the top corner forming a triangle. Now fold the right corner such that it meets the top and repeat on the other side to form a diamond. Keep the pattern-side down.
- Fold the right flap in half forming a line at the middle and repeat on the other side. Now open the left flap and fold it in a way that the middle line formed previously is flatten and smoothened. Repeat on the right side. In this way 2 diamonds are formed on the sides.
- Now fold the top half of the diamond inside followed by closing the flaps in halves on both sides.
- Turn the sides over and glue them where they meet. Tip: Use a paper pin to secure it in place while the glue dries.
- Make 5 petals following the above method.
- Finally glue the petals together to complete your flower. See the front and back view of the flower below:
- I hope you enjoyed the tutorial as much as I did making it. 🙂 Have a wonderful crafty week.
