Hey momoluvers it's momo and today I'm making an awesome craft that makes cute decor for Christmas. It's called origami fireworks because it looks like fireworks when you spin it

Step 1: Supplies

1- scissors
2- 15 sheets of 9x9 cm paper

Step 2: Fold

Fold the paper diagonally both ways


Now fold the paper in fourths

Step 3: Meet the Crease

Flip the paper over the other way and fold it down about an eighth of the way to meet the crease of the diagonal line and the fourth line

Step 4: Collapse It

Collapse the paper to form into a triangle

Step 5: A Little House!

Pull the flap up to meet the top corner and crease and crease it. Now push the edge in to make what looks like above

Step 6: Repeat (kinda)

Take the bottom flap and fold it up to meet the crease. Unfold it.

Step 7: 15? 15.

Do this with each sheet of paper. I'm not going to lie, this step is extensive! (I took about 2 and a half hours)

Step 8: Linked In

Take the bottom flap of one piece, and the center of another piece and lock them together. Do this for all of the pieces

Step 9: Follow the Pics So You Don't Get Lost!

Fold the first flap up to form a little house shape.

Fold it back down over itself

Repeat on both sides on the entire thing

That's what it should look like when you've completed the whole thing

Step 10: Flaps

Go between the flaps you just created and fold it up like so and then close it.

It should look like it does above.

Once again repeat this on every flap.

Step 11: Connect the Ends

Take the two ends and link them together like you did in the beginning.

Step 12: Finish!

This is what your final piece should look like! When you rotate it in your fingers, it looks like it's exploding.

Nice piece and it may be a lot of work folding the modules it is worth it. A video certainly helps! Took me a while to figure out step 8 .

I am stuck up at 8th step can anyone help me how to execute 8th step

You have to take the two little flaps in front of a piece and slide them into the middle of another piece.

Does it have to be 9x9 cm paper?

no, but it does have to be square.

momoluv (author)2015-01-03

No, but all the squares have to be the same size
