Origami Flower Tutorial (Using Book Pages)

Burlap, Book Page & Ribbon Bouquet

My first attempt at a video tutorial!

I took some time out of my day to test my skills as a teacher.  The 5-petal book page origami flower is a staple in my craft arsenal.  I use this cute, easy, little craft to spruce up all sorts of stuff… centerpieces, gift wrap, party favors, etc.  There are so many different ways to customize it.  Just about any sort of craft paper (music sheets, cardstock, wrapping paper) can be used for the petals, and it’s the crafter’s choice when it comes to the flower’s center as well.  I’ve used beads, pins, or buttons in the past.

I tried to keep the video as short as possible.  It took me about 3 HOURS to figure out the ideal setting, lighting, angle, etc.  I also had to start over a few times while filming.  I am clearly NOT cut out to be on camera.  Forgive my YouTube rookie-ness.
