Lots of nice things are made in the popular origami technique; and flowers take their special place. We`ve already offered you to make simple flat Tulips as a decoration element for holiday cards. Today our craft is a lovely Volume TULIP. We think this craft will be good for schoolchildren who can`t afford buying expensive fresh flowers, but can make this wonderful tulip with their own hands and give it as a small gift to a boy-friend or a girl-friend on Valentine Day or on March 8th.
