Mini Origami Pot Plant / Succulent Tutorial – Cute DIY – Paper Kawaii



Learn how to make a cute little origami potted succulent plant for your desk! These origami plants make perfect gifts and decorations, your friends will love them. No cutting or glue required!

To make the pot:
The pot is intermediate, make it from 10 x 10 cm if you’re using my measurements.
An easier option would be a little masu box: (using 9 or 10cm)

These origami plants don’t have to be miniature of course. You can make them as big as you want. Some size examples are below. The rounded leaf version can also be a flower, looks like a lotus! But in this case I think it looks like a little succulent.
Add as many leaves as you like, just keep in mind the pot would need to be made from larger paper if you have a bigger plant!
The ‘soil’ isn’t needed if the plant fits within the pot, I think it looks better with it though..
