Origami is a fun way to start crafting because it requires few materials (paper and sometimes scissor) and easy instructions. This instructable will show how to make an origami leaf in only 3 super easy steps.

* Crafting paper

* Scissor (to cut the paper into a rectangular shape)

This is one of my old ibles, I've republished it with better pictures and easy instructions :)

Step 1: Folds

Basic Folds:
Take a rectangular shaped crafting paper and fold it into half (vertically) just to mark the center line, but you'll have to unfold it to make the next folds.
Now, fold the paper from both sides (vertically) equally, so that the edges meet the center line from both sides (see 3rd picture of this step).
Again fold the paper into half.

Main Folds:
Start making small and even folds on the folded paper from any corner.
<p>I made it! By the way I'm only eleven</p>

Good Project. Thanks :)
No problem!
thumbs up.. loved this.. :)
Thanks hun! :)
A very interesting project. I'd like to try this. Unfortunately, you're a little vague with your instructions. Can you fill in a possibly slow origami learner? You say you fold the paper in half just to mark the center line. It looks like you open it to make the next fold. Is this right? Fold the outside edge to the middle as marked by the first fold? Are the next fold the same, outside to the middle? Thanks for details. <br>
Sorry for the confusion! yes, you're right about the first fold, it's only for marking the center line of the paper and you'll need to unfold it to make the next folds. <br>Thanks for stopping by and reading the ible :)
I am huge into origami and i love this
Thank you!
Beautiful! Can't wait to make this! Thank you!
Very neat. Something I'll get my Gr. 6 class to try in the new year.
