Easy Origami for Elementary Schoolchildren. Autumn Leaves


— colored paper (yellow, orrange, red),
— ruler, scisssors,
— glue, pencil.


1. Take one paper sheet, cut it into 10 equal parts. 9 parts will be used for making leaves, one part — for a stem. The craft size will depend on the original format of paper. For an unusual seasonal bouquet, it's better to use workpieces of various sizes.

2. Take a paper sheet and using a ruler, bend it in two, connecting the opposite angles. You'll make a triangle. Smooth out the fold carefully.

3. Unfold the triangle in full. In a made square bend one side towards the bending line. Then bend the second. For a one maple leaf it's needed 3 such elements and 6 more complicated ones.

4. The complicated part is made on the base of a simple one. After you've folded 2 opposite sides to the middle, turn over the workpiece on 180 deg. Bend in the same succession the 2 left sides.

5. Now assemble the maple leaf. Take one simple element and 2 complicated ones. Connect the complicated parts in the place of bending sides. On top of them glue a simple part. Thus, you've made 3 basic elements. Glue them together overlap.

6. Make a stem now. On the base part of the leaf basis, glue the left square its angle up so that its half could be seen. Cut the sides along the leaf contour, but don't cut to the end. Fold a stem from the made «tail», putting the angles one onto the other.
