Difficulty Level: Easy – Intermediate

How to fold an Origami Flower - Step 01

Use a square piece of origami paper to make this origami flower. It is better to use a paper that has color on one side. That way, following the instructions will be a lot easier. The first step is to make a square base. To do this base fold, you must fold the  paper diagonally to the left and to the right. Then, crease the paper well and unfold.
