This video shows you how to make an origami lotus flower out of six separate sheets of paper. My sheets are 4x7cm but you can use any size proportional to those dimensions (yes, origami and math go hand in hand). There are a couple ways to make a lotus out of just one sheet of paper, but I think this fold is a little easier and looks better because you can make the petals and leaves different colors.
- 3 pieces of paper proportional to 4 x 7 cm (pick color for petals)
- 3 pieces of paper proportional to 4 x 7 cm (pick color for leaves)
- something to bind paper together: rubber band, string, pipe cleaner, etc…
