Beautiful Origami Umbrella Creative Craft Step by Step Tutorial
- Similar printed craft paper
- Your folding skills
Step 1: Take A Printed Craft Paper
Your first step is to take a square printed craft paper. Fold the printed craft paper from both the sides (horizontally and vertically) to make a small square. Open the printed craft paper and you will get a plus line intersecting each other.
Step 2: Fold The Printed Craft Paper
After getting the intersecting lines, fold the bottom right corner of the printed craft paper and join it to the middle.
Step 3: Fold All The Sides Of The Printed Craft Paper
By repeating the same step as above, fold all the corners of the printed craft paper. After folding you will get a diamond shape.
Step 4: Turn Your Printed Craft Paper Upside Down
After getting a diamond shape, turn your printed craft paper upside down. Fold the top part of the printed craft paper into a triangle, then, take the end of the triangle and fold it on the triangle a shown.
Step 5: Fold The Other Side In The Same Way As Above
Now, fold the right side of printed craft paper in the same way as above by repeating the same step.
Step 6: Fold Both Side Of The Printed Craft Paper Together
Now, this part can get a little tricky but have patience and you will get it in no time. For this part, you need to fold both side of the printed craft paper together to make a big triangle. Then, pick the middle part up to make a small mountain shape.
Step 7: Make A Diamond Shape
Now, the mountain which you made by picking up from the middle of the triangle, press the middle of the mountain very carefully to get a small diamond like shape. This is a little hard part, but there is nothing you cannot do.
Step 8: Open The Diamond Shape
Okay this is also a little hard but just follow my lead carefully. Now, open the upper part of the diamond shape and fold the bottom part of the diamond shape inwards. By following this step you will get a small boat like shape.
Step 9: Repeat The Same Process
If you got all the steps correctly, you can easily make the other side similar by repeating the same above steps. Like first you have to fold the triangle together and make a small mountain. Then, press the mountain downwards from the middle to make a diamond like shape. Then, open the diamond shape from above and press the bottom shape of the diamond inwards. Follow these steps religiously to make the other side similarly and you will conquer all the hard part of this craft very easily. You need to make the same whole shape, six more times now by repeating the above steps carefully.
Step 10: Unfold All The Sides From Behind
Now, the corners which you had folded behind the printed craft paper earlier, unfold them and you will get a similar shape as shown in the picture.
Step 11: Put Glue On The Opened Side Of The Printed Craft Paper
Use the glue to apply it on the opened corners and the side of the opened corners of the printed craft paper as shown in the image. Remember to put the glue on the right corners otherwise the whole craft will get messed up.
Step 12: Stick The Same Other Shape On The Glue
Now, the same shape which I’m sure you have made and I think you must have become pro by now, stick the same other shape where you have applied glue in the above step. Repeat the same step and apply glue and stick all the other shape in the same way. Remember there should be total seven same shapes.
Step 13: Make stick for the umbrella
Now, roll another printed craft paper to make the stick for the umbrella or where we hold the umbrella from.
Step 14: Stick Another Printed Paper On The Umbrella Stick
To make you umbrella look more fancy or creative, roll another printed craft paper against the stick which you have made. Roll it little down from the top of the umbrella stick as shown in the picture.
Step 15: Insert The Stick Into The Umbrella Hole
Now, insert the stick which you have made into the hole of the umbrella. Do this carefully and slowly, so that your umbrella doesn’t get messed up.
Step 16: Roll Another Printed Craft Paper On The Top Of The Stick
Roll another printed craft paper on the top part of the stick of the umbrella. This will make your umbrella look outstanding and pretty, you can try if you want to.
Step 17: Make A ‘J’ Shape From The Bottom Of The Stick
Now, to hold your umbrella properly, make a curve from the bottom of the umbrella stick. You will get a ‘J’ shape.
