Instructions for Origami Lily: Fold paper lily

They still lack a suitable spring decoration and you do not want to spend a lot of money ">

At first glance, the folding of the lily seems complicated and definitely something for professionals - but that's not the case. With a little patience, even beginners can quickly fold a lily.

You need a square sheet of paper for the Origami Lily, either in white or another bright, friendly color. In pastel shades, the lily looks the most beautiful. If you want, you can also make a style out of a paper-wrapped wire for the lily. However, this runs very pointedly by itself that it can be put into a vase without style.

The following video shows you exactly what you need to consider in each step. For beginners, the video is therefore definitely recommended. Have fun refolding!

Illustrated step-by-step guide

Step 1

Step 1: Fold the square sheet of paper once from left to right and once from top to bottom in the middle.

Step 2: The sheet must now be turned open and placed on the back. From this back, fold the two diagonals. Open the sheet again so that the tip sticks up in the center.

step 2

Step 3: Now you make a smaller square out of the sheet - instead you place the square with a tip to the top and one to the bottom. By leading two opposite corners to each other, the paper folds together almost by itself to a smaller square.

step 3

Step 4: Place this smaller square in front of you so that the center line is vertical and the open side is up. Now fold the right and left corner along this midline.

Step 4 and 5

Step 5: Apply the paper and repeat step 4 with the other two corners.

Step 6: The single flowers of the lily are now being shaped. To do this, unfold one of the corners folded in step 5 and fold it inwards against the fold. Repeat this with the remaining three corners.

Step 6

Step 7: The paper must now be in front of you so that you can continue to fold. To do this, simply fold the left-hand side of the triangle on the right, turn the paper over and repeat the step.

Step 7
Step 8

Step 8: Now fold down the blunt, opposite corners along the midline. You do this on all four sides of the lily.

Step 9: Open the pleats from step 8 and fold the corners inward to form an upstanding top. This tip is flattened pointing down.

Step 10: Repeat step 9 on the back. When you have done this, open the other two opposite faces and repeat step 9 with them as well.

Step 9 and 10

Step 11: Slowly open the flower and hide the four outward-facing triangles inside by folding them inwards.

Step 11
Step 12

Step 12: Place the now pointed pointed diamond in front of you and fold the corners to the left and right of the center line. Repeat this process with the remaining three pages.

Step 13: The lily flower is almost finished. Now pick up a pen or another round staff. Roll up all four petals on this, so that they assume a bulge outwards.

Step 13

Tip: If you would like to make a two-colored, even more beautiful lily, we recommend this: Simply fold two lilies in two different colors according to our instructions - one slightly larger than the other - and put them in an offset manner. Finished!

Done is the origami lily!

Folding an origami flower does not always have to be very complicated. If you fold neatly and neatly tighten all corners and edges with your fingers, you will notice the difference. The folding art Origami is in itself an art that everyone can learn with some patience. We guarantee, after one or two folds, you have all the steps in mind and the lily can be refolded at any time, even without instructions.
