Origami Modular Wreath Step 1: Start with a 6 inch square paper color side down. Fold in half on the shown dotted line.
Origami Modular Wreath Step 2: Fold the right tip to meet the top tip.
Origami Modular Wreath Step 3: Now fold the top tip down to meet the bottom tip. Crease well and unfold.
Origami Modular Wreath Step 4: Make a squash fold. Open the paper slightly and squash it down to form a square. The edges should all line up.
This is what you should have now:
Origami Modular Wreath Step 5: Flip paper over.
Origami Modular Wreath Step 6: Fold the top layer down on the dotted line as shown below.
Origami Modular Wreath Step 7: Now fold the right side over, creasing on the shown dotted line below.
Origami Modular Wreath Step 8: Flip paper over. This is your modular unit. You will need to make 8 of these. We've chosen to use 2 colors, green and orange, but you can make all of the same color or a different color for each of the units.
Origami Modular Wreath Step 9: Time to put the units together! Place 2 units side by side as shown below. The "larger" square on the orange unit should fit into the "smaller" square of the green unit.
Origami Modular Wreath Step 10: Flip the units over. See the circled area below?
We need to somehow hold the units together without glue and this is how you do it! Make a fold on the dotted line shown below, tucking the green tip under the orange unit.
And this is what you should have:
Flipping the units over:
Origami Modular Wreath Step 11: You now have to repeat Steps 9 and 10 for the rest of the units. Once again, you'll fit one unit into the other.
Origami Modular Wreath Step 12: Flip units over. Tuck in the tip.
Origami Modular Wreath Step 13: Repeat steps 9 and 10 for the remaining 5 units.
Finally the last unit is joined up with the 1st unit and your origami modular wreath is completed!
