It’s almost that time of year!
Yes, it’s almost Spring, and I can’t wait for the weather to get nicer and to be able to spend more time outdoors. This winter where we are has been quite light, but I think I speak for everyone when I say it’s definitely time to bring Spring & Summer back!
As we are approaching the time when all of the flowers start to bloom again, I thought it would be fun to show you how to do a cool origami flower that can either be pasted into a scrapbook or that can be used in a spring time table set up.
This origami rose is quite simple to make even for a new “origami-ist” and is one that people are sure to love.
As you can see this Origami Rose will require two sheets of origami paper (I suggest a size in the first step, but you can make your roses any size you’d like) and will be created in two parts (Rose & Stem):
Let’s start by showing you the Origami Base that this project is based on:
And the second step of this project also reveals a second type of Origami Base. Your paper should be coloured side up!
The same above steps will be used when creating the “Stem” portion, but for right now we’ll be focusing on the Rose Part of the project:
Next turn over your origami piece over:
The next two steps can be a little tricky, but keep practicing and you’ll get it: Think of it as making a little tent of the fold and then pressing it down:
We’re almost done the rose now, just one more fold:
The first two steps of the stem creation are the same as the Rose. Make a Shawl Base Fold, Fold the two points of the diamond into the centre.
Now you will turn your triangle onto its side and fold it in half:
Now we have the stem for our Beautiful Springtime Rose. All we have to do now is put the two pieces together:
And there you have it my friends, a neat and quite easy Origami Springtime Rose. This is a project that can be done at anytime of the year, and is suitable for all ages.
I hope you like this first of many origami projects and that you visit often to see what else we come up with. I am sure there will be many more flower origami instructions to come this Spring!
