### Do you Want to Learn a Very Simple Origami?

Thank you so much for the request! I love it! I'll even teach you 3! If one part is hard to understand, tell me and I'll try to develop more or explain better!

- •Ok so here are two of my favorites. One is a lotus flower and one is a Rosace but we actually have to make a windmill first so 2 in 1! It's pretty simple and I do them often as a little gift, or I leave one in his luggage when my boyfriend travels, etc.
- •First the Lotus Flower ; We start with a square maybe between 1,5 and 2 inches if you're a beginner. Bigger if you like!
- •Fold it in half
- •Unfold and fold in half the other way
- •To obtain this.
- •Bring a corner to the center
- •Bring the other corners as well
- •In this new shape we fold again the new corner to the center
- •And the 3 others
- •Turn over the model
- •Another time bring a corner to the middle and fold
- •And again the 3 remaining
- •Now fold to the other direction what you just folded but shorter, leaving part of the triangle bellow
- •Do the same for all 4 sides
- •Turn over
- •Fold in half following the diagonal of one of the little squares in the middle. It's like we're opening the flower
- •Do the same with the other 3
- •Again fold in half following the diagonal the even smaller squares in the middle
- •And do the other 3 - Done!
- •Second model : windmill and Rosace - start with a square
- •Fold in half each side and unfold
- •Bring the side to the central line and fold. Then unfold
- •Do the same for all 4 sides
- •Fold the diagonal and unfold
- •Fold the other diagonal and unfold
- •Fold again 2 of the sides you folded on 23 together
- •Bring the part standing up to the side
- •Continue with the other sides
- •Like that
- •For the last side you have to unfold a little but it all comes back to place easily
- •Here's the windmill!
- •Now to make the Rosace we continue. Open one of the flaps
- •When opening it push a little the pointy part to flatten it forming a square
- •Like that
- •Continue with the other 3 flaps
- •Here the 4 flaps done
- •Close up to one of the squares. You have to bring the side of the square to the central diagonal of the square as shown in the picture
- •Now unfold a bit to see the opening of that little part you just folded facing up
- •Squash the little "hat" on top of that little part
- •You have this!
- •Do it for all 8 sides connected I the center
- •You obtain that
- •Flip over
- •Fold the corners using the other side as a reference
- •...your fold will follow the points of the exterior triangles we can see on the picture
- •Do all 4 corners and Done!
- •Now it's your turn! Fold and take pictures and share here !
- •These were fun but I used thick scrapbook paper which was hard to fold.Suggested by @jennifergster
- •Squashed lotus flower..?I need to do more practising!Suggested by @Diplomatic_diva
- •RosetteHad it down till I got to the last step but it's still pretty. Definitely need nicer paper ☺️Suggested by @angela3950
- •My first one!! I love it 😍Used some stationary I saved from my mom. I'm going to try it the opposite way to get a different design. On to the rosette 🏃🏽♀️Suggested by @angela3950
