    Thank you so much! This tutorial was very clear and I made these bows into fabulous necklaces, I made 3 other bows and used one for a card, another one for a hair clip and the last one was huge for a decoration on a Birthday.

    Hi, :) Long story short, I am a bridesmaid and the bride wanted our bouquets to be D-I-Y. So immediately I thought of origami since that’s my forte. She also said to make a boutonniere for my partner. I was having a hard time finding a cute origami boutonniere and I stumbled onto this one and I tried it and I fell in love! It’s super cute but classy. (I used gray origami paper with pearl stickers) Thank you for the diagram. 😉 If I like it my partner would too. 😀 I wish I could post a picture for you guys…:/

    it turned out great!
    So thankful for your video!

    Just tried it, and once I figured out how to make the sink fold… well… sink, then the rest was a snap.

    I just found your site, and am in love! I googled ‘kawaii origami’ looking for presents to put in letters for my pen pals, and guess who came up?

    Also, I have a question. I keep seeing these really cute bunny envelopes that are origami and recloseable, and yet I can’t figure out how to make them. Google it and you’ll see some etsy listings selling them, but I want to make my own. Any ideas?

    I’m an intermedete folder and this was too easy for me. p.s try the stars!

    • http://www.paperkawaii.com PaperKawaii

      Please let me know which stars your talking about ^_^

      • Amy

        she might be talking about lucky stars, 3-d japanese origami wishing stars

    Origami ribbon bow is so cute !!!
    It’s worth trying it, did you try ???
    I find it difficult to understand all stages !

    • http://www.paperkawaii.com PaperKawaii

      I did make one for the origami hearts post: http://www.paperkawaii.com/2011/02/12/heart-origami/
      It is really cute and a really nice shape.
      What steps are you having trouble with? The first step after the folds is a sink fold, thats a bit tricky… the other steps involve a bit of cutting!
      Let me know, maybe I can help :o)

      • http://creariane.blogs.marieclaireidees.com/ CréAriane

        Sink fold is surely tricky 😉
        Since I’m origami beginner and Korean non-reader, it was somehow difficult for me to get started LOL
        I tried out of simple paper, and it worked !

      • Lynne

        I am a beginner, too and don’t know what a sink fold is. Is there any way to get written (in English) instructions?

        • http://www.paperkawaii.com PaperKawaii

          Hi, I have not seen an English translation.

          I found a video tutorial though:
