Origami Tulip Flower
This origami tulip flower is a little more challenging than our simple origami flower for example and has a cool method of inflating it like a balloon at the end.
We recommend using paper that is 15 x 15 cm or 6 x 6 inches or larger to start with. Please follow along and make the folds as precise as possible.
When placing the tulip flower on it’s stem, it needs to have the correct balance. So if you cannot get it to stand up, you can try using thicker or larger paper or card for the stem.
