Easy flower paper craft


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.


It requires constructing petals and gluing them together to have your very own colorful flower. Some ways you can use it are:
  • I used my flower as a bulletin board decor
  • You can make these flowers for to celebrate a girl’s birthday with flowers theme
  • Make birthday caps with it.
  • Make eight such flowers and glue them together to make a fancy decorative ball
  • Origami art for kids
  • Baby mobile


Easy flower paper craft tutorial


  • 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.
