When our Blog Ambassador Amy of TeachMama asked friends what their children wished they could do for Mom, it’s no surprise that many answers included giving flowers! It seems as if everyone enjoys giving (and getting) colorful flowers. So we’re here to show you a clever way to give Mom – or any special person – flowers that come from the heart. These DIY origami paper flowers don’t need water to keep their beauty and will stay “fresh” as long as they’re treasured and loved.

In this activity, we teach you how to make the type of flower shown in yellow and purple in the bouquet pictured above. The folding for that type of flower is a little easier than for the one shown in blue. Scroll down to see how to make your own lovely DIY flower, using either Melissa & Doug Origami Paper or our free origami paper square template provided on a printable page below.

This craft is probably best suited for kids ages 5 and up, and our handy printables have easy, step-by-step instructions. If you opt to use the origami paper template, kids can use crayons and child-safe scissors to color and cut out the sheets for their project.

Click below to download the two pages of instructions, so you can make your very own DIY origami paper flower!
