EASY FALL DIYs
Now here’s my attempt at a festive origami! I’ll try to explain the steps, but if you just follow the video you’ll be just fine! : )
All of the steps and folds may seem daunting, but once you get the hang of it, it goes fairly quickly.
Start with a paper cut down to a 5″ square.
Bring two corners together to form a triangle. Bring the bottom right corner up to the top corner.
Now bring the left corner up to the top corner, which will leave you with a small diamond.
Now turn down the right flap and fold it in line with the edge of the diamond. Do the same with the left side.
Pull out the right fold, then open it up and fold it down upon itself to form a kite shape.
Form a kite on the other side as well. Fold down the pointed tip in line with the original triangle.
Fold down the other tip. Now fold the right triangle in half on the crease that already exists. Repeat on the other side.
Use a gluestick to glue the two small triangles together.
You’ve now finished one petal! Now do it four more times and you’ll have yourself a pretty little flower.
Once I’ve made 5 “petals,” I use double stick tape to put them together. I tried a gluestick the first time, but double stick tape holds up much better (especially because the petals pull a bit to reach each other).
I wanted to put these on my Christmas tree so I had to jazz them up a bit.
I finished by running some glitter glue along the center of the flower. It’s difficult to see in the video, but they definitely sparkle in person. I love them!
