Origami Tulip Card



This great guest project from Jo of A Bit of This and A Bit of That is perfect for Mother's Day.

Origami is a favorite pastime in Japan and kids learn simple origami in kindergarten. A 3-year-old friend taught me how to make theses tulips. The tradition stem for origami tulips is quite difficult for a little one so I made this card easier by using pipe cleaners.

I loved this, and found it very easy to make when you don't have a lot of time about 20 minutes tops I would think that this would make a great group project, for all ages
