Learn how to make an origami succulent. These mini origami succulent plants make perfect gifts & decorations, your friends will love them. No cutting or glue required. These origami plants don’t have to be miniature of course. You can make them as big as you want. Some size examples are further down.
The rounded leaf version can also be a flower, I think it looks like a lotus flower! But in this case I think it looks like a little succulent. Add as many leaves as you like, just keep in mind the pot would need to be made from larger paper if you have a bigger plant.
The pot is intermediate, make it from 10 x 10 cm if you’re using my measurements. An easier option would be a little masu box (using 9 or 10cm), or any little container you have would also work.
The tutorial for the round plant pot is here. The soil isn’t needed if the plant fits within the pot, I think it looks better with it than without it.
