Hello! In this video I will show you how to make my new model a very simple origami mushroom. This mushroom can lay flat or you can make it stand up. To make the origami mushroom you need a square piece of paper with a different color on each side and we’ll start with the color on the bottom. Then we’ll make an horizontal fold and we’ll make it at about one-third and actually we are going to make it at a little bit less than a third. So this colored part should be a little bit smaller than the white part here. And mark the fold. And we are going to fold the two corners at this point, like this, Mark the fold and unfold, then fold the other corner. mark the fold and unfold, then turn the model to the other side, and I’m going to put my finger between those two layers here so that I can rotate this flap, only the top layer at this point and I’m going to flatten the fold and to do that first I will invert the diagonal fold here, then once it’s inverted you want to pay attention to this edge it needs to stay aligned to the bottom like this, and then you can flatten the fold and mark it all the way. And I’m going to fold back this part here, fold here at the middle of this edge and again make sure to keep this edge aligned to the bottom and mark the fold. And we’ll do the same thing on the other side, so put your finger to separate the layers and start to rotate the flap, invert this diagonal fold and mark it, and keep the bottom aligned and then just flatten and again fold again this flap at the same level. So as you can see this is not exactly in the middle, this part is larger than the white part, but it doesn’t matter. So don’t worry. So turn the model to the other side and you have something that looks like a mushroom and if you turn it to the other side you can round a bit the corners if you want, just a little bit like this. You can do the same thing on the other side and you can also very slightly round the base of the foot of the mushroom. So make a very tiny fold. Same thing on the other side You have a nice flat mushroom but if you want your mushroom to stand up, what you can do is use those two flaps here to give more support to your mushroom like this and you can try to make it stand up and it will fall again, and the solution is to put the flaps on one side, and I’m going to fold those two flaps together starting from the middle, I will make a very very small fold here like this and it needs to be very small, and then you can fold back the flaps in the middle and once you have done that you can make your mushroom stand like this, it will stay a little bit on the back and it will stand. I hope you like this easy origami mushroom. In the next video I will show you how to turn the mushroom into a tree. If you fold this mushroom or any of my origami models please send me some pictures so that I can show them in future videos. I received many beautiful pictures of models from my new book Origami for Halloween. Thank you very much for sending them! The book is now available in English, French, Spanish and German and soon in Czech and Italian. If you would like to help to translate the book to other languages please let me know! Thank you very much and happy folding!
