Instructions to make a 3D Origami Tulip using triangular units of paper with the Modular origami technique have been provided. The steps are fairly simple and this is a beginner level modular origami model.
How to Make a 3D Origami Tulip – Instructions
We will need a total of 95 units of a chosen color (Pink color used here) for one tulip.
Make the triangular units – the steps for making these units is given here.
Start by making the connector units. This way Rows 1 and 2 are formed.
Keep adding till you have a total of 15 units in each row.
In the same manner, insert Row 3 (15 units).
Invert the model.
Bring down the rows as shown.
Now start inserting Row 4.
Here is Row 4 completed.
In the same way insert Row 5. (Both rows – 4 and 5 have 15 units each)
Now insert units such that a triangular structure is formed:
Row 6 with 4 units
Row 7 with 3 units (on top of Row 6)
Row 8 with 2 units
Row 9 with 1 unit.
Insert units (in the same way as above) opposite to the structure created in Step 8. The tulip flower is done.
For the stem, construction paper has been rolled and floral tape has been wrapped around.
Apply glue and insert the stem in the flower.
Some leaves are then cut out and glued on. And because of the simplicity, I made two of these 3D Origami Tulips.
