FOLDED PAPER ORIGAMI FLOWER TUTORIAL

I love finding projects that I can try RIGHT away – no need to go out and buy supplies or search for a hard-to-find “ingredient.” This folded paper flower is one of those projects for sure!!

As long as you have . . .

  • Some type of paper (any kind will do!!)
  • Some type of glue (I use hot glue because I use hot glue for everything :-)!)
  • Scissors
  • A pair of hands

. . . . you’re all set!

These folded paper flowers = birthday party decor, wedding decor, bridal/baby shower decor, little girls’  room decor, and anything else you want to decorate with these origami folded paper flowers!

 1. Start with a square piece of paper. I used 12×12 because I wanted my flowers to be nice and big! (If you want square sheets of paper, try something like this or this!) But you can use any size at all. It all depends on what you are using the flowers for.

5. Next you’ll take that top corner and pull it down to line up with the diamond edge. Remember to keep creasing all your edges!

7. Now comes the “trickiest” part – and it’s not anything hard! Stick your fingers inside the “wing” and open it out. You’ll be able to tell what I mean from the picture.

11. Now grab the little triangle on the right that you just folded down, and put it inside the 2 layers behind, almost like you’re putting it in the little “envelope” behind.
