Follow the steps below to make this Origami Flower.
Difficulty: Medium

Follow these detailed instructions to learn how to make an origami flower. At the end of the instructions, I'm also going to show you how to make an origami flower stem that allows you to attach two of these flowers to it. And if you make a few of these stems and flowers, you're going to have a beautiful bouquet of hydrangeas :)

You will need scissors to give the petals a "flowery" form, but it's not absolutely necessary if you're ok with square petals :p

Step 1 Step 1: Start with a square piece of origami paper, but if you only have regular 8.5x11 paper, follow these instructions to make a square sheet.
Step 2 Step 2: Fold the paper in half, top corner to bottom corner.
Step 3 Step 3: Fold the triangle in half, fold left corner to the right corner.
Step 4Step 4-2Step 4-3 Step 4: Open the upper layer flap and squash down like you see in the picture.
Step 5 Step 5: Turn the paper over.
Step 6Step 6-2Step 6-3 Step 6: Make the left flap stand vertically, then open it and squash down.
Step 7 Step 7: Rotate the figure so it's upside down. Only a few more steps left!
