Simple Origami Patterns : How to Make a Square or Basic Flower Base


All origami begins with several simple bases,
and my name is Robert Segundo and today I’m going to teach you how to do the square base
or the basic flower base. What we’re going to start with is we’re going to start with
a square piece of paper and what we’re going to do is we’re going to fold it. Actually
we’re going to do two of the most simplest folds right here, which is just a mountain
fold in half like this which is called a book fold I believe. Open it up and do the same
thing here. Like so. Open it back up, fold it like so, this is called a sheet field or
shawl fold or however you want to call it. I’ve been calling it sheet for all my life
so that’s how I know it by is a sheet fold, like so. What we’re going to do is we’re going
to open it up. Sheet fold it again like so. Now, what we have here is you can see we have
our paper bisected in many different ways. So what we’re going to do is we want our square
fold to be this square here. So to get this what you’re going to do is you’re going to
fold your paper over like this, and then open it back up along that crease line there. And
then bring your back to where it forms like that and it’ll basically just almost form
itself once you get that form in. So now that you got that you’re basically going to do
the same thing with this side, and fold it down over, and there you have it. Should look
like this when you open it up, it’s going to be folded like so. And that is your square
base. Play around with it and have fun making your origami.
