Origami Cactus & Flower Tutorial

Origami Cactus & Flower
Origami Cactus With Flower Tutorial Paper Kawaii 01

Fold a pretty origami cactus with a flower that sits in a pot. These origami cacti are a great little gift to give friends and family, they can be displayed on desks and require NO water. Origami flowers and plants are great for all seasons, all year round, they don’t need water after-all! They 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.
