Easy Origami Leaf Card

Yesterday was my boyfriend’s dad’s birthday, and as he’s a lover of origami, we decided to make him a simple yet effective origami leaf card. The last time I made a leaf card it was a paper-cut design rather than a folded origami creation – but this couldn’t be quicker or easier (even for origami newbs!)

For instructions, watch this YouTube video by Origami おりがみ 折紙 which gives you a step-by-step guide alongside relaxing music. It’s really simple – all you need is a sheet of A4 paper.

I used double-sided wrapping paper from Hobbycrafts (cut to A4) which was patterned on one side and light green on the other. I also tucked in a small square of card with an arrow pointing out that I wrote a birthday message on, rather than writing on the inside of the folded card.

This DIY took 5-10 minutes, and I got it right on my second attempt – the white design that you see in the pics here was the first. If you love origami or have an origami-lover in your life, give it a go!

Let me know how you get on! Enjoy!
