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
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.
Start making small and even folds on the folded paper from any corner.
Step 2: Unfolding
When you're done making the small folds carefully open the last fold of the basic folds.
Step 3: Final Step- the Leaf
Squeeze the whole paper firmly, just to make sure the small folds are in a good shape,
Then, squeeze the bottom and the top of the folded paper to form a basic leaf shape.
Done! You can use these origami leaves in a lot of crafts!
