Step 1: Making A Horizontal Crease On Paper
Start this craft by taking a small square pink origami sheet and turning it to see it as a diamond shape. Now, fold the top and bottom corners of the diamond over each other to form a horizontal crease and unfold again.
Step 2: Folding Along The Crease
Fold the bottom corner over the top along the horizontal crease of the diamond to form a triangle.
Step 3: Folding The Right Corner To The Mid-Top
Fold the right corner of the triangle to the mid-top corner of it and make a slanting crease.
Step 4: Making A Kite Shape
Now, open the paper from between the slanting crease and push in along the horizontal creases to form a kite shape over the triangle.
Step 5: Folding The Top Of Kite
Fold the top triangle shape of the kite over it along the boundary of the triangle and make the crease.
Step 6: Folding To Overlap The Kite Sides
Now, slightly open the kite fold to put the recently folded triangle inside the paper, and fold the boundary side of the kite over the other side to overlap it.
Step 7: Making A Petal Of The Flower
Following the previous steps, do the same from the left side of the triangle, make a kite shape, and overlap the kite sides of it too. You will see the paper has converted into a diamond shape with 2 thin triangles at the sides. Now, fold the sides of the diamond shape to overlap the thin triangle sides and stick them over using gluestick, and make sure not to crease this fold. This will be a petal of your flower.
Step 8: Applying Gluestick Over The Petal
Apply glue stick on the side of the petal of your flower.
Step 9: Pasting Another Petal To The One
Following the whole previously stated process again over another pink sheet to make another petal of the flower. From the side where the glue stick was applied, paste this petal to the 1st one.
Step 10: Making A Flower
Stick 3 more petals to the previously pasted one and form a flower.
