Method

To make the origami leaf (see the creation of this leaf in action in the video below)

Step1.
I used the green and white dotted leaf from my kit here,fold diagonally both ways and cut on the diagonals to form 4 triangles.



Step 2

Pleat the leaf from the lower corner to corner and bring both side down to fan out the leaf.Apply glue to stick ends in place.



See detailed demo in video below.


To create the Origami Rose

Red and white dotted paper from my kit here

1.Create the cone shaped flower for the frittileria from the kit also called the fish base. (detailed instruction for this is in the kit)



2. Fan out the 4 pointed trainlge to form a star like flower.


3.Fold the corners into the middle metting at the middle of the flower



4. Flip the flower and twist the center firmly pressing down.



5.Adjust flowers by tweaking the "petals"




To make card :

1.Fold a card stock into the desired proportions

2.Using cricut cut 3 consecutively smaller ovals each slightly smaller than the other.

3.Layer the ovals and stick onto the card.

4.Using the .svg provided cut out the "Happy Valentines Day" font and stick onto center,

place the leaves on top and bottom.

5.Create a smaller origami rose using a smaller paper and repeat all steps to create the origami rose.
Use glue to adhere.





And finally if you follow me on instagram I have been trying to learn calligraphy as I find it really useful 
to use for cardmaking and typography so here is a small preview of my work and I hope to be posting on my recommendations to learn calligraphy in my next post!

Leave me a coomment if you have any suggestions!

Paper Origami Tree DIY

Christmas is over but here is a small Origami Tree that we did at home  that perhaps you can do also  with all those leftover scrap paper you have at home now to lend some New Year spirit into your home!










To create this tree I used the paper again from my origami flowers kits (you can buy this kit from here using all those gift cards you got over the Christmas)which has been translated into many languages with new covers which I love!

I chose green and red for some and some brightly colored pattern for the  other to create these cute and colorful trees!

Step1.
1.You would need a 2 pages from the kit or any paper on hand,here I have chosen a green chequered paper and a bight red paper.The paper from the kit are double sided which makes it all the more fun to craft!
2.A scissors



Step 2

Fold the lovely square paper into half,unfold and fold again in the opposite way,now fold on the diagonals.

Now create the square base (more steps in the kit..) as in the second picture



Step 3

Bring both side of the square to create a triangle in first shape below.Flip over and fold sides to middle to form triangle kite shape...

Step 4
Open the side flap and tuck this flap inside the shape (called reverse fold) to result in the shape shown further down in step 5

Step 5
Step 6 
Open the other flap and tuck that inside.Flip the side do similarily with the flaps to form the kite shape below...



Step 7
Use your scissors to snip the bottom ends below to get a tree shaped triangle..


Step 8

Using scissors make 4 cuts in the sides of the triangle on each side like below
Step 9
Fold the cut ends to form ends of the tree!
Step 10
Flip over the flap and repeat folds to create the tree


Usually the tree sits by itself but I thought it would looks even better with a truck after fiddling around I figured out  an easy pleated trunk!

Step 11
To make this use the red (I wanted to stick to xmas theme but you could use brown..)
I fold the square into half like below


Step 12
Pleat the paper by making repeated folds like an accordion fold.

Keep folding keeping pleats equal and small..

Open one side and tuck the other end into the fold to make an even no of folds..

Step 13
Fold the corners down to meet all the fold at the center to crease well each fold to form shape below..

Insert shape into the bottom of the tree like below.

Cut a small star (draw) and stick on top..

Tissue Paper Pointsettia Paper Flower Tutorial

Poinsettia is one of most beautiful flowers here in New England during Christmas.I am sometimes surprised at its vibrancy and the colors they come in..they are sometime spray painted with silver and looks so beautiful adorning the altars of the churches here during Christmas.I was so inspired by this flower that I wanted to try one out but it took a turn and I landed with a new twist to a little old classic mesh wreath technique that is now very popular in the USA.







       

 Reading about the poinsettia flowers I found this old Mexican legend about how Poinsettias and Christmas come together, it goes like this:

 There was once a poor Mexican girl called Pepita who had no present to give the the baby Jesus at the Christmas Eve Services. As Pepita walked to the chapel, sadly, her cousin Pedro tried to cheer her up.'Pepita', he said "I'm sure that even the smallest gift, given by someone who loves him will make Jesus Happy."

 Pepita didn't know what she could give, so she picked a small handful of weeds from the roadside and made them into a a small bouquet. She felt embarrassed because she could only give this small present to Jesus. As she walked through the chapel to the altar, she remembered what Pedro had said. She began to feel better, knelt down and put the bouquet at the bottom of the nativity scene. Suddenly, the bouquet of weeds burst into bright red flowers, and everyone who saw them were sure they had seen a miracle.

 From that day on, the bright red flowers were known as the 'Flores de Noche Buena', or 'Flowers of the Holy Night'. The shape of the poinsettia flower and leaves are sometimes thought as a symbol of the Star of Bethlehem which led the Wise Men to Jesus. The red colored leaves symbolize the blood of Christ. The white leaves represent his purity. Beautiful story!

To make this pointsettia you need:
Step 1:
A 12 inch wreath form - from Michaels
A set of tissue paper more than 20 by 20 inches wide in 2 greens and red.I found one with glitter on them this time - any thing is good!
A florist wire - you can use chenile stems too! I didnt have them on hand..
tissue-paper-pointsettia-tutorial-1


Step 2.
Just like the mesh wreath that we make cut pieces of 10 inches of wire and tie onto each division of the wreath ring one on the outer ring and one set in the second inner ring.
Now take longer pieces of the wire and make cross wires on the partions so you should get a pattern like below.I hope you can see where I have tied it.I have just made my first one so I guess there will be more improvisations soon..


Step 3.
Cut 10 by 10 inches of the greens and red - if you have a 20 by 20 I divided each into 4.The darker green I used a bit larger one as I wanted it to peek out more at the ends.


Step 4

This was the tricky part for me initially I couldn't figure out how to keep the tissue paper looking full so my origami ideas came into play - how I love origami now!


I pleated the square on the diagonal like in the picture it can be rough pleats and catch the center and bring both end up like an origami leaf!



Step 4.
Add a second leaf using the same method and place one on top and tie.Snip wire ends.
Step 5

Attach these leave to the wreath form using the wires on the wreath form itsefl bringing then wires down the middle to adhere to ring.Repeat till whole ring is formed.



Step 6.
Add a second set of lighter green leaves at the outer ring itself forming a ful ring.(I couldnt get a picture of that..)

Step7
Form petals using the red paper adding to the outer ring and then moving to the innner ring now..



Step 8.
Once you have attached petals in the inner ring form petals and add to the crosswires till you reach the center..

Step9
Wire the baubles onto stem wire and tie in the center..

Here is a video of the beautiful pointsettia! So easy and a bang for the bucks!!Create them for your parties  and sent me pictures!!
