Posted on December 6, by Stephen In one of my previous posts about origami sonobe balls I posted a picture of how I had used some of the balls that I had folded as Christmas tree ornaments. The post is here. It had its own challenge in folding due to the fact that poster board does not fold nice and neat.
I had to score all of the folds before trying to manipulate the poster board. I did not design this model. Please do not give me credit for the design. This book is fantastic for beginners, it was one of the first books I got. It has a fairly decent range of very simple to a little more challenging models for those just learning.
Folded paper ornaments has models just for show and aesthetics as well as functional models to play with and decorate with.
An excellent book for learners. So, here goes my first attempt at an origami photo tutorial. To begin, you will need 7 different sheets of paper. The remaining 6 sheets should be varying sizes. For the trees I make I start with an 8 inch piece of paper and go down 1 inch for each additional sheet; so here I have an 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, and 3 inch squares of paper.
Also, the largest green square and the square used for the trunk the white sheet here are the same size — 8 inches. We start with the largest green square. The dotted lines indicate a valley fold while the solid lines indicate mountain folds.
A valley fold is created by folding the sheet of paper and then unfolding it. The reverse is true with a mountain fold. This next step is often called the preliminary base or bird base in origami books. The easiest way to describe it is that all 4 corners of the square come to the same point when folding along the pre-creased lines.
Here are 2 more pictures to try to help show what you should have. The next step is to add a valley fold that goes between the center and the lower right edge. The stars in this picture are to help illustrate the next step. In this step the small triangle flap is then tucked down and away into a pocket.
Notice the stars are no longer visible. This step is a little difficult to show in a picture. In the picture 2 steps up there was a valley fold that was changed into a mountain fold.The folded paper doily ornament is so easy, it can almost be done in less time than it takes to read the instructions below.
