Camellia June 21, 2013 by Kayla Minguez Leave a comment 1. Start with the colored side of your paper facing down. Fold the paper diagonally, open and repeat on the opposite diagonal. Your paper should have an x-like crease across it. 2. Fold one side of the paper into the center line, like so. 3. Fold the next side down to its center line. 4. Lift up the corner flap of the paper so that the white underside is touching the edge of first fold that you made. 5. Fold the flap backwards slightly, so that the white underside is creased at the edge of the first fold. The edge of the corner will stand up slightly when you do this. 6. Squash fold the edge of the paper like this. You should still be able to see the white underside of the paper touching the first fold you made. 7. Next, fold in the side of the paper closest to the squash fold so it touches the center line. The new fold will cover the squash fold you just made. 8. Repeat Step 4, lining up the white underside of the new fold with the edge of the last squash fold you made. 9. Repeat Step 5. 10. Repeat Step 6, making a second squash fold. 11. Fold the last side of the paper upward. It will cover the second squash fold you made. 12. Repeat Steps 4 – 6 as depicted below. 13. Next, take the squash fold you just made and fold it upwards, like so. 14. Carefully, unfold the side of the camellia like this. 15. Use the crease lines to carefully begin to fold the left side of the paper inward. Continued picture of Step 15. After you have completed Step 15, your camellia should look like this. 16. Repeat Steps 4 -6 on the last corner of the camellia. (Continued depictions below.) Your camellia should look like this after you complete Step 16. 17. Fold the third squash fold back down to its original position. 18. Tuck the corner of squash fold 3 under squash fold 4, and tuck the corner of squash fold 4 under squash fold 1. 19. Crease the tips of all of the squash folds like so, and your origami camellia is complete! Advertisements Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
