An Easter palm cross!! When I entered the kitchen for breakfast this morning, I was pleasantly surprised to find a small palm cross resting on a plate at my table place. My mother in law, Yvonne Sutton, had placed it there for me in celebration of Palm Sunday.
On this website I have featured some origami related to Holidays such Easter. Since I have always loved the palm crosses Yvonne makes on this christian holiday, I asked if she you would teach how to make this palm cross in a video tutorial for the Origami Spirit community. Yvonne graciously accepted the invitation. In this video she teaches us how to make this traditional little Easter Cross.
Materials needed to make the Palm Cross
A long strip of palm or paper; about 14 inches is fine.
The process of making the palm cross is quite easy. The first part involves making a knot that will become the center of the Easter cross. Then the side and top shorter arms, and lastly the longer arm.
After folding the palm cross, my friend Karen Reeds (US) came up with an idea on how to use the same palm cross folding technique to make a garland: The Hugs and Kisses Garland. It’s easy and fun too. Check it out!
