Origami is really fun and making things with origami is an amazing experience. You can also use patterned papers for a really vibrant look and matching any theme you have. I personally think origami can not be used for home decor but this craft is really fun. So, I am sharing with you a few good origami ideas that are useful and not just fun to make. I love origami so much that I actually have made a board in my crafts room with my origami collection. I am so thrill to share it with you once it’s finished.
Origami is an art you can never get bored off. Making flowers with origami is a really fun way of passing your time. Here is how I make my origami flower lily and used it as a pencil holder on my bulletin board. Make it yourself and send me your beautiful lilies. Your art is worth showing off. 🙂
- Take a square paper (9 1/2 x 9 1/2) and fold it in half such that the bottom corner folds onto the top corner. Keep the pattern-side down.
- Fold it in half again, such that right corner folds onto the left corner.
- Now open the top half of the triangle and flatten into a diamond shape.
- Flip the paper over. Open and fold the fin to the top left and flatten into a diamond shape again.
- Open and fold the left flap and flatten it into a pyramid shape.
- Flip the paper and repeat flattening into pyramid shape with the other 3 sides. ( Note: be careful not to fold wrong corners, you have to fold the four sides of the diamond)
- Fold the edges to the centre line, open the flaps, as pictured below and flatten into a diamond shape at the bottom. Flip the paper and repeat with the other 3 sides.
- Flip the triangle of the diamond and fold it down as shown in the picture below. Repeat with the other 3 sides.
- Rotate (flip) flaps you will get a clear surface as shown below. Now fold the top right and top left edges to the centre line like before. Flip the paper and repeat on the other 3 sides.
- Fold top triangles down, as shown in the picture below. Open the flower and your lily is ready. Enjoy! 🙂
I hope it was fun making pencil holder with me!
Till next week
Stay happy and keep smiling
