These origami easter eggs are made using accordion folds. These origami eggs are a nice springtime ornament, hang them up as Easter decorations or make pop-up cards with these paper eggs.

This year, I want to post holiday related origami well in advance of the actual date of the holiday. The accordion eggs have been sitting in my to-do pile for 2 years. They can also be Balloons, Rain Drops or even a Cactus.

These origami eggs require no glue. If you are planning to use glue (to save time), the extra, smaller folds on both ends will not be needed.

You can make a great pop up card with these by sandwiching the egg inside a folded card.
