How to make an origami lotus
I'm going to explain how to make a lotus.
This origami paper is 20 cm square.
(1)Fold it in half to make a crease and fold back. Turn right by 90 degrees and repeat it. You make the pink creases.
(2)Fold the corners to meet the center lines.
It becomes like these.
(3)Then repeat it. Fold the corners to meet the center lines.
(4)Once more, repeat it. Fold the corners to meet the center lines.
(5)Turn over it. And then, once more, repeat it. Fold the corners to meet the center lines.
(6)Then, fold each corner a little.
(7)Turn over it. Then open each flower petal from the center. It's easy to break, so you have to treat it gently. It comes like this. you made 4 petals.
(8)Turn over it, and make next flower petals again.
It comes like this.
(9)The last ones. Turn over it, and make tha last petals. It's easiest to break! I made this lotus several times, but I've never made them without break these last petals...
(10)You finished it!
If I couldn't explain it in a good way, please leave a comment.
