Origami Flower StemFollow the instructions below to make this Origami Flower Stem
Difficulty: Easy-Medium

I was looking for a stem to attach the hydrangea origami flower, but couldn't find any so I made one myself. Just like the actual hydrangea stems, this origami flower stem will allow you to attach two flowers to it to form a bouquet. Neat huh?

Step 1 Step 1: Start with a square piece of origami paper with white side up. If you only have regular 8.5x11 paper, follow these instructions to make it into a square sheet.
Step 2Step 2-2 Step 2: Fold the upper left corner to the lower right corner, then unfold.
Step 3Step 3-2 Step 3: Now fold the upper right corner to the lower left corner, then unfold.
Step 4Step 4-2 Step 4: Fold the top half backwards, bending at the "X" crease, then unfold.
Step 5 Step 5: Poke the center with your finger so that it pops in.
Step 6Step 6-2Step 6-3 Step 6: Bring the creases on the side to meet at the center to collapse the paper into a triangle.
Step 7 Step 7: Rotate the paper so it's upside down.
Step 8Step 8-2 Step 8: Fold the triangle in half, then unfold.
