How to Make an Origami Tulip Tutorial
This easy origami tulip is inspired by my sister-in-law. She 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 exceptions 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.
