Origami Accordion Easter Egg Tutorial

Origami Accordion Easter Egg
Origami Accordion Easter Egg

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 accordion easter 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. Check out more Easter themed origami here.
