This was so relaxing to listen and watch. Thoroughly enjoyed learning how to make this bow. My presents will never be wrapped the same. Thank you for taking time to show us your beautiful work! Xx from Orlando!

Thank you so much! This tutorial was very clear and I made these bows into fabulous necklaces, I made 3 other bows and used one for a card, another one for a hair clip and the last one was huge for a decoration on a Birthday.

Hi, 🙂 Long story short, I am a bridesmaid and the bride wanted our bouquets to be D-I-Y. So immediately I thought of origami since that’s my forte. She also said to make a boutonniere for my partner. I was having a hard time finding a cute origami boutonniere and I stumbled onto this one and I tried it and I fell in love! It’s super cute but classy. (I used gray origami paper with pearl stickers) Thank you for the diagram. 😉 If I like it my partner would too. 😀 I wish I could post a picture for you guys…:/

Just tried it, and once I figured out how to make the sink fold… well… sink, then the rest was a snap.

I just found your site, and am in love! I googled ‘kawaii origami’ looking for presents to put in letters for my pen pals, and guess who came up?

Also, I have a question. I keep seeing these really cute bunny envelopes that are origami and recloseable, and yet I can’t figure out how to make them. Google it and you’ll see some etsy listings selling them, but I want to make my own. Any ideas?

Thanks for the lovely comment, those envelopes sound so cute, I had a look, I think they start from this :

If I figure it out, I’ll post about it.

Thanks for the suggestion ❤❤❤

I did make one for the origami hearts post: https://www.paperkawaii.com/2011/02/12/heart-origami/
It is really cute and a really nice shape.
What steps are you having trouble with? The first step after the folds is a sink fold, thats a bit tricky… the other steps involve a bit of cutting!
Let me know, maybe I can help :o)

Sink fold is surely tricky 😉
Since I’m origami beginner and Korean non-reader, it was somehow difficult for me to get started LOL
I tried out of simple paper, and it worked !

I am a beginner, too and don’t know what a sink fold is. Is there any way to get written (in English) instructions?
