Make Origami Flowers for Cards
Origami flowers for cards make thoughtful tokens for celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, or other special occasions. A card decorated with an origami flower is also lovely as a thank you note.
To begin, cut your origami paper into four equal squares. You will need one square for each flower you wish to make. Fold your square diagonally in half.
Bring the bottom right corner up and slightly to the right of the top point. Bring the left corner up the same way.
Flip the paper over and blunt the corners as shown. When you flip back to the front, you'll have a finished origami tulip.
Now it's time to make a stem for origami flowers for cards. Fold your green origami paper diagonally in half. Unfold the paper.
Fold each side in, matching the edges along the center crease.
Fold the sides in once more, creasing sharply.
Fold the bottom point up as shown.
Fold the entire model in half down the middle. Pull the stem apart slightly to give it the desired shape.
Use glue dots or foam adhesive squares to attach your origami flower to your card.
