How To Make An Origami Dress

Posted on Last updated: /

Making origami is fun and only requires one craft supply to make – paper! Get ready a flower-print paper or money to make this beautiful origami dress. We have included a video to show you and I am sure you can master it in no time. Let’s go!

On the quiet morning of Mother’s Day, as usual, he was in his room reading an origami book, playing with origami paper to create something out from his hand. We always let him have his me-time to do his creation and do not want to interrupt his flow of creativity.

Without expecting anything from him, he handed me an envelope, hugged and wished me Happy Mother’s Day. Me, with raised eyebrows, knowing that he has made something for me, happily open up the envelope and found a paper dress and a paper ring in there. Though they are just origami and not the real thing, I was as happy as a lark, humming blissfully while playing with the origami. What a sweet boy he is!

Today, we have a young guest tutor here to show us how to fold Origami Dress. Please welcome my 9-year-old son, Ian, for his special appearance on this perfect Mother’s Day DIY.

When I posted a photo of it to Craft Passion Official Facebook Page, he received an encouraging response from the dearest fans all over the world. He was super excited but humbly smiling and walk into his room. I asked if he would love to make a video to show the steps, and he immediately agreed to my suggestion. So, we waited until a weekend afternoon when the daylight is at its fullest shine (I like to use natural light for my video and photography)….. He made a few videos with different papers for me to choose from, and there goes the production of the video.

I hope you all have a wonderful time making some of this origami dress. Please do encourage the little kids to fold origami, if my 9-year-old boy can do it, I am sure many kids can do it as well with little guidance.

Loved the video. I am going to look for books for my grandchildren so they can learn how to do some origami. Super good job making that dress. Very pretty paper, too.

I like this idea Barbara :) Are you going to fold it then sew around the edges before applique to the quilt square? I can't wait to see what you have done to this origami dress in fabric :)
