EASY CHERRY BLOSSOM ORIGAMI

Recently, I received a message from someone asking if I do flower origami.
I know I do not have a post about it yet so, challenge accepted! πŸ’ͺ

So, I checked what flowers origami I can do. It so happened that this person shared a photo.

Hence, here I am sharing with you how to make cherry blossom origami or Sakura origami! 🌸🌸🌸

What you will need:

  • Paper (Coloured ones)
  • a pair of scissors

Procedures:

1.Start with a square paper.

2. Fold the paper horizontally, making a rectangular shape. However, make sure that the folded part is at the bottom.
From this step, we will have 6 points which are A, B, C, D, E. F.

3. Fold point C to point E then unfold and fold point F to point B then unfold. As a result, you should have an “X” mark on the right side of your paper.
