This instructional video shows you how to make an origami cherry blossom. Some people call this kirigami since cutting is involved; however, originally ancient origami didn’t distinguish between folds that required cutting and those that didn’t – so both are correct. I have made a video for a cherry blossom that does not require cuts; however this one is nice because it’s pretty simple and it has 5 petals like a true cherry blossom (the other version only has 4 petals). Once you’ve made a few of these flowers, check out this video to learn how to make some stems for them.
– 1 square sheet of paper
– 1 pair of scissors
- pipe cleaners and floral tape (optional for making stems)
