The Pin Junkie: Origami Paper Tulips

Have you ever tried the Japanese art of paper folding known as origami?  As a kid, I used to love learning new ways to fold paper.  Back when I was in school there were no cell phones, text messaging, or Facebook.  If you wanted to send a message to someone, you had to send a note and the more elaborately you could fold the note, the better.

I'm not sending any notes, but I am ready for spring!  Winter has certainly worn out it's welcome and I'm ready for warmer weather and spring flowers like tulips and daffodils.  While I patiently wait for spring and real tulips, I decided to make some paper tulips.

The pin that inspired me to try making these paper tulips was a dead end, but a quick online search gave me this excellent tutorial for making origami paper tulips.  Since there are already many really good tutorials that show how to make them, I'm not going to reinvent the wheel and post a full tutorial here.  If you'd like to try making some, you can go here for the full directions.

    1. I've made the origami birds before too. There are so many folds and I can never remember all of them. I feel like I have to relearn how to make them every single time!
