In this article, we will show you how to make a fun dragon fruit origami with just a paper in a few easy steps! Let’s begin!
Easy Dragon Fruit Made With Origami Paper
- Colored Papers (Pink, Black, and White)
- Green Sketch Pen
- Black Marker
Step 1: Making ‘+’ Creases
First of all, take a 15X15 cm square pink paper. Fold the sides of the paper to their opposite one to make ‘+’ creases over it and unfold it.
Step 2: Making Diagonal Creases And A Triangle
Fold the corners of the paper over the opposite ones to form diagonal creases over the paper and unfold again. Now, hold the bottom corner of the diagonal crease and along the horizontal ‘+’ crease push in the paper, and fold the overcoming flap along the upper-half diagonal creases to form a triangle shape.
Step 3: Folding The Triangle Sides
Fold the left and right sides of the triangle to the middle and form a kite shape on it with a partition.
Step 4: Making The Kite Shape
Flip the triangle to the other side and perform the same previous step over it too, to convert the whole triangle into a kite shape.
Step 5: Folding The Kite Sides
Fold the kite’s small sides to the middle partition.
Step 6: Making A Diamond Shape
Flip the figure and again fold the smaller sides of the kite to the middle partition and convert the kite into a diamond shape.
Step 7: Folding The Ends Outwards
Fold the bottom ends of the diamond shape from the partition outwards horizontally along the small slanting partition you can see in your figure.
Step 8: Flipping And Repeating
Flip your figure and do the same i.e. fold the bottom ends of the diamond shape from the partition outwards horizontally along the small slanting partition. The middle big part will be your fruit and the folds that you have made recently outwards, will be the leaves of your fruit.
Step 9: Shaping The Leaves And Fruit
Open the leaves from the middle to see the white part of the paper along the creases and give them a 3D look. Now, from the bottom, insert your finger into the middle of the fruit and give it a push outwards to convert your 2D fruit into 3D.
Step 10: Coloring The Leaves
Using a green sketch pen, color the white part of the leaves green.
Your Paper Dragon Fruit Craft Is Ready!
For the last step, cut out a semi-circle and 2 small circles from a white paper sheet using scissors. Using the black marker, outline the semicircle and make vertical lines over it to make the mouth showing teeth. Also, color the 2 color circles with the marker, leaving 2-2 circles in them to make them look like shining eyes as shown in the image. Paste the eyes side by side on the fruit and the mouth below and in between them using glue.
