Tulip Origami Pattern

Posted by on


Designed by Michael G. LaFosse. In keeping with the literal pun, younger kids especially love receiving and folding these “Two-Lips!” There are a few designs that drive the use of special duo (two color) papers. Red / green duo papers are popular for Christmas, but now you have a reason to buy a pack to keep on hand any time of the year to cheer up any gloomy-puss!

Step 1

Begin with the lip-color side up. (A) Valley-fold in half diagonally, left to right. Unfold. (B) Valley-fold in half diagonally, bottom to top.

Step 2

Valley-fold in half, corner to corner. Unfold.

Step 3

Valley-fold the bottom left and right corners to meet at the top.

Step 4

Turn the paper over, left to right.

Step 5

Be sure that the folded edges are at the bottom. Valley-fold the
bottom left and right edges to meet at the vertical center crease.
Allow the triangular flaps to come to the front.

Step 6

Turn the paper over, left to right.

Step 7

Valley-fold the top corner of the top flap down.

Step 8

Mountain-fold the top and bottom corners behind.

Step 9

Valley-fold the left and right triangular flaps inward and tuck behind
the folded edges of the center paper. Mountainfold a shallow V-shaped dent at the top of the lips.

Step 10

The completed Two-Lips.
