Origami Cactus Tutorial
Origami Cactus Tutorial

Learn how to make a little Origami Cactus! These friendly cacti are spine free and require NO water! You can make little round ones and tall ones, even create one with lots of levels.

The Tapered Origami Box in the photos was made specifically because the origami cactus didn’t look good in a regular masu box.

The cactus in the photos is the one made with two sheets of paper.  It works better if you use paper that has some texture. The thin crispy origami paper just slides around, I can imagine you’d need to secure them together with glue if you use that kind of paper.

Design: Paper Kawaii
Level: ★★☆☆☆

You will need:

▸ 1 or 2 sheets of square paper

Example: 15 x 15 cm

Final model size: 8 x 4.5 cm (ish and without pot)

For the pot, use the same sized paper that you used for the cactus. The tutorial for that is here.

The ‘pebbles’ are crumpled pieces of paper.
