Origami Four Leaf Clover
In Irish fairy tales it is often said that if you find a clover with four petals, it is good luck! We offer to make a clover with four leaves in the technique of origami so that good luck would always follow you. To do this, we will need to make two elements, absolutely identical in size and fold. The two parts are easily attached without any tape or glue.
Prepare two square sheets of origami paper (size 15 x 15 cm). Choose any shade of green. Follow our instructions step by step and you will have a beautiful clover.
Make four diagonal folds on each side. These will be needed for the inward fold-back technique.
We use the folds that we made in the preliminary step. You will get four inner reverse folds. This technique in origami is called exactly so.
The corners should be tucked into the inner side.
You should get such a figure. Reverse folds are made in the upper and lower parts.
Turn the clover blank over. Fold the bottom and top ends (the layers are only the outer ones).
Now you need to pry the piece of paper from the right side, open to the outer edge. See how it is done in the photo – you need to squeeze the middle part well.
The clover piece is almost ready, you just need to fold the left and right sides to the fold line closer to each side.
Try it, you will definitely succeed!
