Lotus Flower

DSCN9793

1. Fold the paper in half vertically, then unfold. Do the same horizontally. (The Lotus Flower is very similar to the lotus blossom, but a little bit more difficult.)

DSCN9794

2. Fold the corners into the middle of the paper, using the creases from Step 1 as guidelines.

DSCN9797

3. Fold the corners into the middle again.

DSCN9802

4. Flip the paper over.

DSCN9807

5. Fold the corners into the center of the paper one more time.

DSCN9810

6. Slightly, but firmly, bend the corners of the paper forward.

DSCN9816

7. Very very carefully, bring the flap of paper from the back side around to the front. (Tip: Make another, larger fold like what you did for Step 6 and gradually smooth it out as you bring the back side of paper to the front.)

DSCN9821

This is what the result of Step 7 should look like. It’s very easy to rip the paper, so just be patient as you complete this step.

DSCN9823

8. Repeat Step 7 on the remaining three petals.

DSCN9829

9. Turn the flower over. Very carefully, unfold the four triangular flaps you see in the picture above.

DSCN9830

10. Congratulations! You’ve made an origami lotus flower!

3. Fold the paper’s corners in to the center again.

 

DSCN9852

4. Flip the paper over. Fold the corners into the center one more time.

5. Next partially unfold the folds you just made. Crease them just before the paper’s edge.

 

DSCN9855

After you complete Step 5 you Lotus Blossom should look like this.

Camellia

DSCN9616

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.

DSCN9620

2. Fold one side of the paper into the center line, like so.

DSCN9622

3. Fold the next side down to its center line.

DSCN9625

4. Lift up the corner flap of the paper so that the white underside is touching the edge of first fold that you made.

DSCN9626

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.

DSCN9627

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.

DSCN9629

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.

DSCN9630

8. Repeat Step 4, lining up the white underside of the new fold with the edge of the last squash fold you made.

DSCN9631

9. Repeat Step 5.

DSCN9632

10. Repeat Step 6, making a second squash fold.

DSCN9637

11. Fold the last side of the paper upward. It will cover the second squash fold you made.

DSCN9638

12. Repeat Steps 4 – 6 as depicted below.

DSCN9640

DSCN9641

DSCN9643

13. Next, take the squash fold you just made and fold it upwards, like so.

DSCN9644

14. Carefully, unfold the side of the camellia like this.

DSCN9646

15. Use the crease lines to carefully begin to fold the left side of the paper inward.

DSCN9647

Continued picture of Step 15.

DSCN9654

After you have completed Step 15, your camellia should look like this.

DSCN9656

16. Repeat Steps 4 -6 on the last corner of the camellia. (Continued depictions below.)

 

DSCN9657

DSCN9659

Your camellia should look like this after you complete Step 16.

 

DSCN9664

17. Fold the third squash fold back down to its original position.

DSCN9668

18. Tuck the corner of squash fold 3 under squash fold 4, and tuck the corner of squash fold 4 under squash fold 1.

DSCN9669

19. Crease the tips of all of the squash folds like so, and your origami camellia is complete!
