Origami Tulips

‘Tis the season of bright, fresh, and pretty flowers! Make your own indoor garden with this simple origami tulip craft.


  • 3x3-inch pieces of colored paper
  • Scissors
  • Green paper scraps
  • Glue


  1. Fold a piece of the colored paper corner to corner across the center, making exact halves that form a triangle. Fold the triangle in half horizontally. Then unfold the triangle to reveal a centerfold line.
  2. From the center point of the fold at the base of the triangle, fold the bottom edge up on both sides.
  3. Flip the tulip on its back and make small folds on the edges, so that the folds are not visible when you flip the tulip over.
  4. With the scraps of green paper, make a stem and glue it to the base of your flower.

Repeat the steps to create an entire garden of tulips!
