Easy Origami Cherry Blossom Flower Tutorial

Introduction:

Origami flowers are beautiful paper crafts that can be made in many various ways.  For this origami instruction, we are going to make a simple flower origami called an origami cherry blossom. These paper instructions require only a few easy folds to make.

It is highly recommended to use paper that has a green color on one side to make this origami blossom. That way, it looks more aesthetically pleasing if the paper’s green side will be the “stem” of the origami paper and the white side will be the flower.
