Origami Iris – A beautiful, dimensional flower that is sure to impress!

The origami iris is such a lovely flower that will show off your paper-folding skills. Pair it with the stem and leaf pattern I shared last week, or make it one it’s own in various sizes. Origami iris is an intermediate pattern, but take it one step at a time and you will be making fields of these beauties!

Be sure to crease well after each fold. Only one side of the paper will show, so the color of the other side is not important.

Start the origami iris with the square base, place it down with the open corner at the top
