Origami Instructions : How to Make an Origami Flower


A great way to impress and a better way to
impress is with flowers that you’ve created yourself. My name is Robert Segundo and today
I’m going to teach you how to do an origami flower. If you look down here, you can see
I already have my paper precreased. What we want is we want to initially crease it this
way by folding it in half and then fold it this way and crease it this way to make sure
we have this plus sign here. What we’re going to do is we’re going to fold these points
over to meet in the middle. Now I’ve precreased this so we can move along with this. Now,
what we’re going to do is we’re going to take these points and do the same thing and crease
them to where they meet in the middle. Like so, like so, and like so. Now what we’re going
to do is just take and fold it in half, the open end at the top. Now what we’re going
to do is something like petal folding really. We already have the creases here and the crease
here in the back. What we’re going to do is just kind of open this up and then kind of
fold it like so, kind of a rabbit ear fold almost. We’re going to do the same thing on
this side here. Fold it in like this. Now what we’re going to do, flipping it back up
to this point here that’s connected. Here’s our open end, here’s our pointed end. We’re
going to
lightly pull your leaves back off. Pull them into like so. It’s going to take a little
bit of work. We’ll pull them out into a flower shape like so and you’re going to do that
on all four sides. Oops, almost ripped that right there. Now as you can see, this is going to take
on a tulip look. If I did this with thinner paper, it would probably be a little bit easier
to pull these strands out like so. Pull this side out just a little bit like so. You can
kind of pull on them and adjust them. What we have here is the start of our flower and
what you can do from there is take and start curving all of these leaves back like so,
like so. It’s going to be kind of a 3-D flower look to it. There you go, like so and like
so. Then, after you get those leaves pulled back you can pull back the inner leaves. Just
kind of, it’s easier if you have like a pencil or a chopstick that you can actually roll
these leaves on. This thing is just going to kind of open up like so. There you go.
If you take, just kind of squish it down a little bit, there we go, if it’ll stay. Basically,
that’s it. It’s your origami flower. My name is Robert Segundo and enjoy folding.
