The flowers have not let the fickle temps bother them. They are beautiful. The daffodils are winding down and the azaleas and dogwoods are in full bloom. Anyone who knows me and has been in my house knows that I LOVE COLOR! So everything is right with the world now that the outdoors is colored in greens, and pinks, and reds, and yellows.
So, in honor of the blooms, I am going to show step by step instructions for making Origami flowers. Why not bring some flowers into your home that will last forever? Don't be intimidated by this project...it's easy once you get the hang of it. All the paper folding may seem confusing at first, but trust me, you will have an "ah ha" moment and then you will turn out lots of flowers in no time at all.
1.Coordinating paper cut into squares. For this demo, I cut the paper into 6" squares. The larger the square, the larger the flower. You can also use newspaper or magazine paper.
3. Glue...I used a hot glue gun but you can use super glue or E6000. Double sided tape would also work.
4. Buttons or anything else to embellish the center of your flower (optional).
Step 3: Fold in half the 2 sections you just completed.
