I will be showing you how to make a flower. Not sure what kind it is, but I'm pretty sure it's a tulip. Please give me some tips because this is my first Instructable and I'm still in junior high school.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

Step 1: Gather Your Materials.
All you need for this Instructable is a piece of regular computer paper and a pen.
Step 2: Fold and Rip Your Paper to Make a Square.
Grab one corner of your paper and fold it back to make a trapezoid like in picture one. Fold and crease the side hanging over and back using your finger to crease it each time. Now, using both hands, rip the edge with the completely flat side (picture two), carefully, to create a square like in picture three.
Step 3: Crease the Paper.
Crease your paper to make an X on the paper. Flip the paper over. Now do the same except do it on the horizontal and vertical line so it looks like a +. After you've done all that, unfold it.
Step 4: Step 4.
Using both of your hands, pinch two opposite diagonal and pull them towards the middle. You should get a small square as in the picture.
Step 5: Fold, Once Again.
Pinch two opposite sides again and make an arrow pointing towards the open side of the paper as in the first picture. Do it to both sides.
Step 6: The Next Step. ( Can't Think of Any Other Names :| )
First crease the top of the paper. Now, on one side, pull the paper up and back, as in picture one. It should look like the picture two. Now pull it all the way back until you can't anymore. Crease each side of it to make it look like picture three.
Step 7: Easy Peasy..
Fold the open end of the paper up to create a diamond shaped paper. Do it to both sides and turn your paper 180 degrees around.
Step 8: Almost Done!
Now fold the edges of the bottom to make a little "handle" to carry the flower by. Do it to both sides.
Step 9: Time to Finish It Off.. and Add Some Curly ;)
Using a pen, curl down the "flaps" or petals to make a nice looking finish to the flower. Once again, do this to all four sides.
Step 10: You Are Finished!
Yay! You have now made your own origami flower! Enjoy!
