Round Origami Diamond Tutorial

These origami diamonds are made from 1 sheet of paper, easier to make than most & are rounded. Great decorations, give them as gifts to friends & family.

This is a slightly harder model than the easy square origami diamond. Instead of using just a square sheet of paper, we’ll first make a pentagon. Don’t worry, making the pentagon is easy and shown at the start of the video.

Using a pentagon instead of a square makes it a much rounder diamond. I am yet to try with a hexagon.

If you would like a cleaner finish, without the flaps that slot in around the base, you can easily reverse those folds, use a dab of glue on each one and secure inside.

The wonderful dark coloured origami gem is made from paper I found in a random craft shop, I wish I had more of it even though it really shows each fold. The rest of the origami crystals are made from quite thick metallic paper. Some are also made from standard thin origami paper.

The diagram for these origami diamonds can be found in my shop here.

I just posted the following comment on the video:

I’ve added steps that make the model easier for me to complete. From about 8:08-10:30, you focus on the steps that form the pocket into which the flaps are tucked. Before collapsing the model, I find it helpful to sharpen the creases that form the flaps themselves. This helps them wrap more neatly around the piece, and makes them easier to tuck.

Here’s a screenshot I’ve drawn on to illustrate:
