I Love This and That: origami flower

origami flower

Ok if we want to be technical this is not a origami flower, it's a kirigami flower :-) but either way they are very cute and fun to make.  Just have a look at this stunning kitchen tea I found on the internet using these flowers... 


Origami (meaning "folding" and kami meaning "paper") is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD at the latest and was popularized outside of Japan in the mid-1900s. The goal of this art is to transform a flat sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, ans as such the use of cuts of glue are not considered to be origami.  Paper cutting and gluing is usually considered kirigami. (www.wikipedia.com)

What you need:
Book's pages 
Stick or wire

Using a book pages you first need to get a square.  So fold the one end of the page in diagonally and cut off the top bit of the page. This will make a triangle.

Fold the left and right corners up to the top of the triangle. 

Fold the same points down. The folded edge will line up exactly on top of the outside edge of the square.

Open up the flaps you have just created and flatten them.

Fold the top triangles towards you so they are level with the edges of the paper.

Fold the side triangles in along the crease you made earlier.

Glue the outside triangles together to make the petal.

Make five petals and glue them together to make the flower.

Put them is a pretty vase... and enjoy :-)
