Papercraft Series 01: ORIGAMI SHAPES
How to make an Origami Diamond?
Hello readers! Since that we made easy origami shapes such as cube, heart, star in the previous episodes, I promoted myself to the next level. As my sister is teaching these origami things to me, when I said about the levels, she smirked and gave me two square papers. Let us see what she has for us in this episode.
In this blog post, we are going to make an origami diamond. This one is a little tricky but simple if we pay attention to each step. If you did not get it right in the first step, try again. Failed again? Take some rest and start from first. You will get it right soon. I made this origami diamond properly after almost 5 attempts and was so happy because the results are awesome.
