DIY Origami Mandala


You’ll need 8 rectangles with one side twice
as big as the other. I cut 8 from a 15 by 15 centimeter square. You’ll also need glue. Start by folding you paper in half. Open your paper and fold it the other way
in half. Open your paper and fold one side to the fold
you just made. Fold both corners to the center fold like
you see here. Open the last folds and inside reverse fold. Now take the flaps to one side and bring the
bottom side to the center fold. Repeat on the other side. Turn the model over and fold the corners at
the top to the center. Turn it over and fold the triangle on the
bottom to the right using existing creases, so you get a square. Fold down the corner of the square like you
see here. Then fold the corner to the center of the square. Flip the square over and repeat on the other
side. Squash fold the triangular flap to finish
the part. Now you need to fold seven more parts. To attach the parts to each other, lift one
side of the small square and add some glue. Now place the other side of a small square
from another part between the flaps where you added glue like you see here. Repeat these steps to finish the model. This design is very similar to the first design.
Begin by folding your paper in half, open it and fold it the other way in half. Now fold one side to the fold you just made. Fold both corners to the center fold, open
these folds and inside reverse fold. Take the flaps to one side and bring the bottom
side to the center fold. Repeat on the other side.
Turn the model over and fold the corners at the top to the center. Then fold the point
to where the white on the back ends like you see here. Turn the model over and fold the triangle
on the bottom to the right, so you get a square. Fold down the corner of the square, then fold
the corner to the center of the square. Copy that last fold on the other side of your
square like you see here. Squash fold the flap. Fold down the upper
edge of that part to the center. Now reverse the fold to the inside and the
part is done. For attaching, lift up the small flap and
add glue. Then, place the bigger flap of one part between the small flap and the back of
the first. Repeat this for the other parts.
