Origami flower kids paper crafts for beginners
- Take a square paper (9 1/2 cm x 9 1/2 cm) and fold it into rectangle and triangle to pre-crease as shown below. Then fold the 4 corners into triangles meeting at the centre. Keep the pattern-side up (if you want pattern inside the flower) and down for reciprocal.
- Making 2 jasmine flowers together is easier than 1. So we will need 2 papers to make 2 jasmine flowers together. Fold the pink paper like the yellow paper above.
- Now place the two papers over each other such that pink is the diamond and the yellow is the square. Fold the yellow flap over so that it’s tip meets the tip of the pink paper. Repeat it with the other 3 sides. Repeat the process with the pink paper over the yellow paper now.
- Now we will need 8 pre-creased lines for the final jasmine flower. Fold the paper into triangles, rectangles and crosses. Make the lines stiffer with your finger tips (you can also use paper crease tool).
Origami flower simple folding for starters
- Here is a simple illustration of pre-creased lines we will need for the jasmine.
- Fold the flaps outside and sideways so that you will have 4 on one side and 4 on the other side as shown below:
- Your final shape would be like an arrow. Now fold it at the tip and in half.
- Followed by folding the line and closing it firmly in the shape. Now open the petals while holding the tip firmly
- There you have it a very simple and easy jasmine flower. I would really love to give it a try with napkins for a dinner party next time if I have some extra time at hands. Till then enjoy this paper flower.
