Origami is an ancient art with which you can create original and amazingly beautiful crafts. Flowers are the most popular among beginners. A wonderful gift can be a bouquet of paper tulips made with your own hands.
Origami Tulip: scheme and performance
Tulip is one of the simple handicrafts that even a novice can make, the main thing is to strictly adhere to the scheme of work below:
The paper of any color is taken (20x28 cm), it is important that it is sufficiently dense and strong, otherwise the flower will quickly fall apart and will not have time to please with its beauty. For a tulip to be as close to real as possible, you need to choose natural colors.
We take the paper and form a regular triangle out of it, all the extra paper needs to be cut off and set aside for a while, as it will come in handy later. You only need to use sharp scissors to cut and not chew the paper, otherwise the tulip will look sloppy.
The resulting triangle unfolds, and then folds again, but only in the other direction. As a result, a square with equal diagonals will be obtained.
To form a paper bud, it is necessary to once again fold the paper and carefully smooth all the folds with your fingers so that they are as even as possible. The paper turns over to the other side and now its central part is directed upwards.
The paper is bent in half and one corner is tucked in the direction of the fold - a new triangle is obtained. This procedure is performed with the second corner.
During work, folds must be carefully worked out, as they must be very clear, without unnecessary folds. As a result, a sheet of paper looks like the one shown in the figure.
All the edges of the tulip are connected and leveled off, the next figure is obtained.
The resulting triangle turns - the base should look up.
The upper parts of the triangle are formed in such a way that as a result they are directed towards each other.
The figure rolls over to the other side and the procedure described in the previous step is performed.
One piece turns to the right. The same actions are performed on the other side.
One side of the wing to shove in the second. We must work very carefully and take the time to prevent extra creases.
The same procedure is performed from the second side, then the whole part is carefully ironed. The resulting workpiece begins to resemble the shape of a tulip, but only it will be slightly flattened.
The index fingers need to take the edges of the workpiece and gently press with your thumb.
In the central part there is a small hole through which it is necessary to sharply strike - as a result, the odd job inside is filled with air. For this purpose, you can use a simple pencil.
In the end, the petals are gently folded over to give the impression that the flower has blossomed.
Now a strip of previously cut paper is taken and a stem is made, which is fixed in the lower hole. The result is a beautiful paper tulip, as in the photo.
We teach children origami technique
- The basic form is taken (how to do it, it was described above) and a double triangle is formed.
- Then his sides gently fold up from 2 sides. One layer of the form turns over.
- The tops fold to the center. The same procedure is performed with the second side.
- The resulting folds are neatly inserted into each other.
- The upper corners are slightly bent, and the bottom must be blown into the remaining hole to fill the bud with air.
- From green paper is a stalk.
Modular origami tulip is made a little more complicated, but it will be available to you after several lessons. It’s better to start with simple and detailed master classes in which the basics of origami art are presented in the most accessible way.
