Friday-gami: origami arrow

Our first Friday-gami of the year is here! To start off the year we will begin easy and hopefully make a gradual increase in difficulty as we progress. The origami arrow isn’t too difficult and in 6 pictures and I can show you how it’s done!

With a special guest appearance from my hubby, here is the Origami Arrow!

1. Start with a paper that is 2:1 ratio. Mine is 10×5 in.

2. Fold in half both ways, side to side and top to bottom.

3. With the long side facing you, fold the left square corner to corner. Then fold it in half. We are preparing for the waterbomb base with this. In hindsight, I now realize this is a duplicate of 2…It’s not a blog post of mine without one mistake! 😉

4. Here is what it will look like. Your diagonal creases are valley folds and the others are mountain folds.

5. Now create the waterbomb base by collapsing on the pre-folded creases.

6. Taking the bottom edge, fold it up so it aligns with the center crease. Repeat with tge top edge by folding it down.

And there you have it! Your very own origami arrow! Put them in places you need reminders or to point out silly pictures in photo albums. Let your creativity flow!

Until next time…

About Three Handed Mommy

Mother of one, wife to one. Hoping for more children in the future but so far I'm a three handed mommy. One hand is in school, another in loving my family, the last is on here (and all that comes with it). I love origami and I doodle once in a blue moon. Maybe I will share some drawings, both old and new. I have a slight obsession with Hatake Kakashi, Batman, rubber duckies, pandas, and Pokemon. Then again, my obsession may prove to be more than slight on more than one occassion...don't judge. :P Since this is new and all to me, please bear with me while I find my rhythm and posting habits. Hope you enjoy what I put up here! Feel free to pin anything unless stated otherwise in a post. :)
