Origami diamonds that get to stay on as cute decor even after Chinese New Year.
Instructions adapted from design and form, I changed it slightly at my step #10 and #11.
// you’ll need 2 pieces of origami paper, scissors and glue dots. I tried using a glue stick, but they did not work.
// step 1 : fold the paper from one corner to the other. unfold and repeat with the other remaining corners.
// unfold, and you’ll see the first set of folds is completed.
// step 2 : half the square lengthwise. unfold and repeat with the other side.
// unfold and you’ll see the second set of folds appearing on the paper.
// step 3 : fold the paper into a triangle again, and pinch the right corner to pry open the paper and press it down to form a square.
// step 4 : flip the paper over, and repeat for the other side.
// step 5 : fold the right and left sides towards the center fold line.
step 7 : flip over and repeat for the other side of the paper.
step 8 : trim off the top part.
// step 9 : fold bottom left and right corners towards the center.
// step 10 : flip over the paper and repeat on the other side.
// step 11 : unfold everything.
//step 12 : fold the marked corners inwards,
// to get this.
// step 12 : repeat the steps with the 2nd piece of paper.
// step 13 : to assemble, join the two pieces at the corners that are folded inwards, apply glue dots and join the corners one by one.
