How to DIY Origami Poinsettia
For this craft like most of my

Origami Craft Supplies
Colored craft papers
A pair of scissors
Step by Step Poinsettia Origami
Select different red, green and yellow colored craft papers for the origami poinsettia craft.
Prepare a piece of green square paper (10cm x 10cm).
Fold the square paper diagonally in half.
Unfold the last fold (the diagonal fold).
Hold a corner (on any one side of the diagonal half crease) and join it with the half crease.
Fold the open edge of the last folded corner and align it with the diagonal half crease again.
Similarly, fold the opposite side of the half crease.
Fold any one side of the current pattern along the yellow marked line shown in the picture of this step.
Again, fold the current pattern by joining the 2 yellow lines.
The current pattern should look like a flat V (upside down).
Now, fold the current pattern by joining the 2 yellow lines as shown in this picture.
The current pattern should look like a V now.
Craft 3 green origami leaf patterns, similarly.
Follow the same process to craft 3 red origami petal patterns (use 8cm x 8cm sheets for each
Prepare a piece of round shape from yellow paper and cut a spiral from its outer edge and towards the center.
Coil the spiral from its outer edge and coil it all the way to the center. Use glue to secure the coiled spiral.
Prepare a piece of square paper to use it as a base for the poinsettia flower. Apply glue on the top surface of the base cut-out.
Attach the origami leaf patterns on the glued paper side by side.
Now take an origami petal pattern and join it on the top (center) of the leaf patterns.
Join all 3 origami petals one by one.
Attach the yellow spiral pattern in the center of the petals to complete the poinsettia origami flowers.
