Dorigami enthusiasts make great works of art with simple leaves. Even if you've never made an origami crane, you can make a beautiful flower in minutes by following a few simple instructions and using the right paper. Your first attempt may be a little shaky, but with a bit of training you will quickly turn origami tulips into a real pro.


Part 1 Build a depth charge base

  1. Take a square of paper. Most origami works consist of a square sheet (all sides are the same length). You can buy specialty paper from a hobbyist store or try making a custom origami paper.

  2. Load the paper. Place the sheet of paper with the decorated side up. Traditional origami paper has a colored face and a white face. If both sides of the page you are using are the same, then the meaning does not matter.

  3. Fold the paper in half. Fold the sheet of paper horizontally and vertically. The folds should cross in the middle of the paper to form a cross. For good results, mark the wrinkles well. Do that.
    • Fold the paper in half and align the left edge with the right.
    • Mark the fold well and unfold the sheet.
    • Fold the bottom edge over the top.
    • Mark the fold well and unfold the sheet.

  4. Make an X-fold. Turn the paper over so the back is facing up. The two folds cross in the middle of the square like you did in the previous step. Make the folds as follows.
    • Fold down at the bottom right in the top left corner.
    • Mark the crease well and unfold the paper.
    • Fold down in the lower left in the upper right corner.
    • Mark the fold well and unfold the sheet.

  5. Form a triangle. Form a water bomb base by tucking into the sides of the paper. At this point, the folds you have made must form a cross and an X and the bottom of the paper should be facing up. Tuck the sides as follows.
    • Bring the left and right margins to the center.
    • Align the top and bottom of the bezel paper to enclose the other two sides.
    • Mark the folds to form a triangle.

Part 2 Training the tulip

  1. Fold down the outer corners. You should see a crease between the top and bottom of the triangle. Take the right edge (the top layer of paper only) and fold it on top so that the side of the paper is aligned with the center vertical fold. Do the same with the left Langle.
    • Then turn the paper over and do the same thing on the other side.
    • When you finish bending you need to be in a diamond shape with the top of the bottom facing you.

  2. Fold the angles inward. Bring the left side of the diamond to the right. Take the only left corner and fold it down to align the adjacent side with the center fold. Then fold down on the right (only the top layer) in the same way so that the two angles meet on the middle fold.
    • Do the same for the two remaining angles.

  3. Tie the pages together. The flaps you just brought back to the center fold must each be made of two layers of paper, with a folded edge at the bottom forming a kind of pocket.
    • Slide the corner of one of the flaps into the opposite one to hold it in place. Repeat the process with the two flaps on the other side.

  4. Inflate the paper. Blow in to inflate it and shape the cup of the tulip. Hold the pieces where you closed the flaps to prevent them from separating. Hold on to it as the air can easily escape.
    • Place your lips against the small X-shaped opening at the bottom of the paper.
    • Blow slowly and evenly until the paper is inflated to the maximum.

  5. Spread out the petals. There now needs to be four additional "petals" or layers of paper on top of the tulip. Spread the tip apart by bending it down slightly about a quarter of its length.
    • You can bend these petals for relief.
    • You can also just spread them lightly from the top of the tulip without folding it to make the flower look more natural.
