Origami Orchid

I’m a little amazed it’s been over a year since I last posted anything. I’ve been fiddling with things here and there but not doing a great deal in the paper craft world. One thing I’m particularly proud of is this origami orchid display I made for a friend. She loved it!

I ran across an image of the finished flower on the internet somewhere and that led me to this video tutorial on youtube. It took a couple practice runs but it’s a fairly easy flower to fold and the results are great. I made the stem from two or three pieces of floral wire twisted together for extra thickness, then wrapped in green floral tape. There’s a loop of wire at the base and a small heavy stone holding it in place in the origami vase I found at origami-instructions.com.

Enjoy!
