Origami Cactus & Flower Tutorial via @paper_kawaii

Fold a pretty origami cactus with a flower that sits in a pot! All made with just origami. These origami cacti are a great little gift to give friends and family, they can be displayed on desks and require NO water!

I know it’s not exactly the season for flowers and plant, that is unless like me you live in a hot country like Australia, but it would be a nice little gift for friends and family (any time of year!).

This is the same origami cactus as this one I posted in May, I’ve made the process clearer and easier.
All of the origami pots I used are linked below, please read the paper sizes there before starting.

I really love the little origami cactus, the smaller one is my favourite. Enjoy!
