This origami tulip is a classic. I still remember my elementary teacher showing the class how to make one, and everyone was fascinated by it. The coolest part was when you had to blow into it and form the petals. It was very cool to see someone take a piece of paper and transform it into something beauitful
I can understand why many teachers would want to teach their students how to make the origami tulip. It's insanely fun to fold and it's also pretty easy. Their are actually two parts to the tulip, the flower and the stem. I also provide instructions on how to fold the stem, but if you're lazy, you can simply roll up a piece of paper into a very thin scroll or use a pencil.
|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 2: Fold the upper left corner to the lower right corner, then unfold.
|Step 3: Fold the upper right corner to the lower left corner, then unfold.
|Step 4: Fold the top half backwards, then unfold.
|Step 5: Poke the center of the paper to make it pop in.
|Step 6: Bring the left and right creases to the center and the paper should collapse into a triangle.
