Students started by folding a piece of 12"x12" black construction paper diagonally both ways and vertical and horizontally (to create an 'X' crease and a '+' crease). Making these creases makes creating a radial design SO much easier because it gives you guidelines to work with. Once their papers had been folded and their names written, we sat them aside.
To see how to create these folds, please feel free to follow the links to my YouTube channel provided in each caption line. The last 2 folds link to the same video because I demonstrate both in that video.
My kids absolutely LOVED this project! They are already super into origami, so this project was like heaven to them! :)
