Folded Flower Ball Ornament



This Christmas, trim the tree with a folded flower ball ornament you make yourself. These gorgeous ornaments from Glue Dots are covered in flowers! Origami online instructions make it easy to replicate.

Folded Flower Ball Ornaments


  • Paper (the thinner the better)
  • Paper cutter
  • Ultra-Thin Glue Dots
  • Bone Folder


  1. Cut all of your paper into 3-inch squares.
  2. Score your paper from corner A to Corner B and fold.
  3. Now fold in corners B and C so that they meet at corner A.
  4. Fold in the inner corners out so that they create wings.
  5. Unfold the both sides and flatten them.
  6. Fold down the points along the dotted lines and fold in the sides so that you have a square once again.
  7. Apply Craft Glue Dots to one of the side flaps and press both of them together.
  8. Repeat these steps until you have 5 petals.
  9. Then you can Glue Dot them all together so that you have a flower!

A photo tutorial will work; these directions will NOT. I, for one, am origami challenged. LOL

They do need more explicit instructions (is corner C opposite corner A on the diagonal?), I can't figure out how you get 5 petals, I can only get 4. And what about the smaller paper in the center of each flower?


looks nice but I need more thorough instructions :)
