Easy Origami Paper Tulips – Kids’ Papercraft Idea

Spread the love

We love making and trying out different kids’ crafts in our house! Today my 6-year daughter came home and started making simple little folded paper origami tulips.

They had been making them at school and she remembered how to make them herself. I thought they were super cute so I thought I would share them here.

Materials Needed To Make Paper Tulip Origami Flowers

All you need are some square pieces of coloured origami paper, wooden skewers, and some sticky tape.

First, lay your paper flat and fold once from corner to corner, pressing the crease firmly down.

Then fold one of the corners up as shown below.

Repeat with the opposite corner

Your piece of paper should then look like this

Now you simply turn your paper over and on the back of the tulip attach a wooden skewer with some sticky tape.

At school, the children had displayed them in upturned egg cartons that were painted green.

We didn’t have one to hand so we improvised a bit with an old clementine box in which we put some polystyrene and some decorative sisal grass.

Isabella then went on to make a beautiful job of decorating her crate with burlap and felt tips.

This worked out perfectly to display these cute little origami paper tulips.
