So, there was a really great post on howaboutorange the other day, which linked to a site with directions on how to make origami Japanese maple leaves. I am by no means an origami expert, so it took me a VERY long time to figure out how to make them according to the pictures and written directions. But once I did figure them out, it was SO much fun! I am addicted and there are billions of leaves all over the place.
Because it was a little difficult for me to figure out without seeing it actually done (I lie, it was VERY difficult because I am folding challenged; just look at my room), I thought it may be hard for other people to do too, and I haven't posted a tutorial in a long while so I figured I would post a video of me making a leaf. It's my first video, so it's blurry, my leaf didn't come out as nice as I can make them, and you can hear my dad coughing and my family talking in the background... but it should still help if you so have the desire to live in a forest of Japanese maple leaves!
