Hey there, girlies! We have a new D.I.Y. hack for you today! This time, Oats DIY is teaching us how to make origami flowers. You know the best part about this tutorial? It only involves two materials! Yes, you read that right! So drop everything you are doing right now, and let’s get on with this super easy origami tutorial! Enjoy!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 5 sheets of origami paper
- glue stick
Step 2: Take the right-side pointed end and fold towards the dotted line. Ensure the two tips meet each other.
Step 3: Take the left-side pointed end and fold towards the upper tip of the paper, making it meet the right-side pointed end.
Step 4: Now fold the right flap downwards along the dotted line. Make sure to keep this aligned with the right-side edge.
Step 7: Lift the right-side flap while keeping your index finger inside.
Step 8: Now use your thumb to press down on the previously folded portion of the flap, and flatten it down when its new appearance resembles a kite.
Step 9: Repeat Steps 6 to 8 for the left side flap.
Step 11: Take the left flap’s upper portion and fold down along the dotted line.
Step 12: Now take the right-side edge and fold along the dotted line to meet its inner fold.
Step 13: Repeat the same step but with the left-side edge this time.
Step 15: Let go of the edges and hold the bottom part of the folded paper. Insert your index finger inside the “flower petal” to slightly arrange the three inner tips.
Now repeat Steps 1 through 15 until you have five “flower petals” in total.
Step 17: Press the “flower petal” with another.
STEP 18: Repeat Steps 16 and 17 until you have glued all 5 “petals” together.
Take note that when gluing the last two pieces together, insert your index finger in one “flower petal” while your thumb in another, and hold the two “petals” together for at least 10 seconds to secure them in place.
You now have a KUSUDAMA FLOWER ORIGAMI to adorn your centerpiece!
