The Cherry Blossom

foundation-flower--pictures-web.jpgFive petals make up the cherry blossom, creating more than the sum of its parts. The origami cherry blossom, where each petal is created separately and then glued together, illustrates how the hard work and dedication of the foundation's staff and volunteers make up NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation:

Cherry Blossom Folding Instructions

1. Cut 5 squares. Larger squares make larger flowers

NOTE: Each square makes one petal.

2. Using one piece of paper at a time. Fold the bottom corner up to the top to make a triangle.

3. Fold the side points of the triangle up to the top point so that it makes a diamond.
4. Fold back the same 2 points outwards so that the edges that were running vertical in the center, now line up with the outside edges of the diamond underneath. If you have folded it correctly you should have 2 horizontal edges, as shown in the second image.
5. Open up your newly formed triangles and fold down (squash) onto themselves so that the old corner fold line is now in the center of a kite shaped top layer.
6. Fold the top of the kites inwards so that the corners align with the square underneath.
7. Fold sides in half again, over existing creases. Once folded, glue the 2 outside faces together.
Your finished petal should look like image shown.
8. Repeat steps for all 5 sheets of paper and glue each petal together. Your can use paperclips to hold together sides while glue dries.
