To craft each of these creative origami lotuses you will require 8 rectangle sheets of white or colored paper for petals and 4 rectangle sheets of green paper for leaves. First of all fold a white sheet in half. Then turn all its four corners and fold its upper and lower part in half. Flip it over and fold it inward in half. Fold all the 8 white sheets in this way. Then fold a green sheet in half. Fold its four corners and then fold in half just like you did for the white sheet. Then instead of flipping it fold it inward. Then stack two white folded sheets and one green in the way shown. Make four such sets and then after stacking them tie them in middle. Open all the petals. Start bringing the petals towards the centre one by one and a lotus will be formed. Turn the green leaves upward and voila!
Make them with different colors or printed paper and see the magic.
If you want you can add a flameless tealight too or use a mix of two different shades of paper for petals. You can view more details of this tutorial at liveinternet. Happy crafting!
