I saw this origami bow tutorial here. However, it was in another language and many of you needed a written tutorial plus pictures tutorial, so here it is.
A 3" x 3" paper would make a nice bow for greeting cards. I used 4" square for the bows that I made for the cake here.
A thin pattern paper would make a beautiful bow.
If you are using double side pattern paper place the side that you want down.
mountain fold, crease well and unfold.
you should have this.
valley fold, crease well and unfold. You should have this: 2 mountain fold lines that looked like a plus sign. And 2 valley folds that looked like an "X".
Press it down and fold the "closed" side about 1/2" down like the picture below, crease well.
Open your paper completely like shown. As you can see there is a small square in the center and the creased lines are not the same.
turn the paper over and repeat
After the cut you should be able to move the two pieces up and down. These two pieces will be the bow tails.
then fold it like shown
I was in a rush putting this tutorial together so some phrase might not be clear but I was hopping the pictures will help.
I just reopened my ETSY SHOP. I will be adding more new items soon. Thanks for looking.
