The completed copper tulip.I like origami, so I decided to try using the origami technique not for paper, but for copper foil. As a result, I got a very beautiful tulip. You can use this tulip as a brooch or decorate something with it.

Total Time: 30 Minutes

Yield: The tulip is about 2 inches long

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Use an awl and ruler to mark two 1.5-inch squares. Cut off two squares. I decided not to clean the darkened areas of the foil, as this will give the tulip a vintage look.
  2. Cutting a square of copper foil.
     
    Folding the copper into a triangle.
     
  3. Fold the tulip bud from the first square as shown in the photos (or use the tulip origami diagram).
  4. Folding the copper foil.

  7. Make holes in the base of the tulip bud. Thread the copper wire through the holes. Bend the wire carefully to avoid damaging the tulip bud. This will be the stem of the tulip. Insert the wire inside the leaf, then wrap the end of the wire around the base of the leaf. Cut off the excess wire ends.

    In order to better fix the flower, glue tulip bud to the leaf. If you want to use this tulip as a brooch, then glue a brooch pin, sand the edges.
  8. Adding a stem to the tulip shape.
