Practicing the Art of Making a Beautiful Origami Flower

Every day we must learn new things to somehow relieve tension and reduce stress from a busy and stressful day, so let us learn origami today and experience the art of paper folding. Origami is considered the art of paper folding, and it is usually associated with the Japanese culture. The goal of origami is transforming a flat sheet square of paper into a beautifully finished sculpture by folding and sculpting. The principles of origami are applied in packaging, stents, and other engineering applications. Origami’s basic folds can be combined in order to make detailed and intricate designs.

You can use any flat paper as a material for origami as long as it hold a crease. “Kami” or origami paper is usually sold in prepackaged squares of different sizes ranging from 1 inch to 10 inches or more, and commonly colored on one area, and white on the other side. It makes a suitable for a wider range of designs because “kami” weighs slightly less than copy paper. For making waterbomb and crane, a normal copy paper can be used, whereas papers of heavier weight can be wet-folded, allowing a more rounded sculpting, becoming sturdy and rigid when dried. Origami has different types such as action origami, modular origami, wet-folding, pure and origami, origami tessellations, and kirigami. Origami flowers are beautiful and intricate, making a lovely gift for Valentine’s day, birthdays, Mother’s day, anniversary, and many more. To make a beautiful flower ball, kusudama flowers can be used, as well as a home decoration or an ornament masterpiece during the holiday season. The different flowers you can make from origami include rose, sunflower, tulip, azalea, bell flower, dahlia, cornflower, cherry blossom, lotus, and more.

To make flower petals, you need a 6 by 6-inch sheet of paper. First, turn your origami paper so it appears like a diamond, and then fold the bottom half into a triangular shape horizontally, making sure to align the points prior making any crease. With your triangle facing upwards, take the left point of the triangle and fold it so the tip is aligned with the top triangle’s point, and repeat the same steps with the right side of the triangle. Fold the left point of your original triangle diagonally, meeting the last crease you just made and unfolded, and do the same with the right triangle’s point. Now, with the two points of triangles, fold them backward over themselves, giving your two folds with serious creases, then unfolding them. The triangles’ left and right points are folded and towards the center, so you’ll have two funnel-like shapes which meet in the middle.
