Hi, this is Alvin with Origami by Aki. I'm going to show you how to make a lotus flower using two sheets of origami paper; one a little bit larger than the other one, the smaller ones, we're going to use double-sided paper. Okay. I'm going to start with the smaller one, this is going to be double-sided paper and I'm going to fold a rectangle in both directions and then fold the corners into the middle. Then, the fold the corners in one more time in the middle. And I'm going to flip it over and also fold, fold the corners in. And then, we're going to bring out the corners, just a bit stick out about a halfway like that. This is going to be like a stand for it. I'm going to flip it over and I'm going to fold back the petals and fold them back one more time this inner parts. Okay. And we're going to do basically the same thing with the larger sheet. So, fold it into squares and then fold the four corners in. Fold them in one more time and flip it over, then fold the corners in. And then fold these out back about halfway. Flip it over, fold back the petals, so do that in two steps. And for the inside piece, we're going to, this is actually going to go inside here; so, you're basically putting this underneath the last flap. Okay. That's the lotus flower. This is Alvin with Origami by Aki and that's how you make the lotus flower.
