How to Make an Origami Tulip Tutorial

My sister-in-law lived with us for many years and she was obsessed with Origami. We used to find cute little things that she had made all over the house. For birthdays and other holidays, we always purchased Origami paper for her.

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold, KAMI means paper and they form the word, “origami.” This is an art form that has been handed down from parent to child through many generations. When I was a child, an uncle of mine had married a Japanese woman who did the most beautiful Origami I have ever seen. To this day, I have never seen anything quite like she used to make. Her piano was what I remember most of all.

Origami is usually entirely by folding although there are exception to add additional elements if desired. Origami can be enjoyed by people of all ages even young children. You can make birds, flowers, fish, animals, geometric shapes, masks and toys among many other things. Most shapes can be completed in one sitting.

Here is a simple tutorial to make an Origami Tulip (my favorite flower):

    how cute! I can see using this for making a card or for gift wrapping, or using fabric and using it as applique!
