Stay Calm and Make an Origami Ladybug -Free Video Tutorial

I am sure that you are having your own set of challenges and fears as we ride the crazy rollercoaster caused by the Coronavirus. I hope you are doing well, and that you are healthy! Remember the health benefits of origami, of centering and emotional balance that an origami practice brings to your daily life.

As a token of gratitude for your presence in my life, I have released an origami video tutorial to make a ladybug (Find the tutorial below). Up to now, I have only shared this model privately.

I hope you like this video, along with many others found here in Origami Spirit, and allow yourself to enjoy the calming and meditative effects that folding paper can have for all of us.

Do everything in your power to stay calm and centered. Take care of your physical and emotional well-being!

…and let’s keep on folding paper.

Tips and suggestions for making the origami ladybug

  • In the video, the ladybug is demonstrated using thin kami paper*, known in the U.S. as “origami paper”.
  • Any other thin and crisp paper* –such as gift-wrapping paper or printed paper from old magazines, is suitable.
  • For a striking effect, the colors of each side should be different.
  • Bright red or yellow paper that’s black or dark on the other side is ideal.
  • A good paper size, to begin with, is 6×6 inches (15×15 cm).
  • The square has to be cut in half diagonally to make two triangles.
  • One ladybug can be made from each triangle.

  1. I have enjoyed making many of the designs you share and have pointed people to your site because of your wonderful videos. Looking forward to watching the ladybug one!

  2. dear Leyla,
    thanks again for your lovely post and to share the ladybird. In Germany where I have been living for 2 years now, this ladybird is seen as ,,porte-bonheur”. Happy to read you again, was popping to look at a fish origami today to deliver, with my daughter, in the letter box of some of her German schoolfriends. Indeed being French, paper fish in the back is the surprise for April fool day…but we will transform it as a ,,hello post message” to greet her friends in these times of self-isolation.
    Take care of you Leyla, we love your spirit, we just love you!
    A bientot Patricia

  3. Que linda tu ladybug 🐞. I will try to do it sometime. Gracias querida Leyla. Un abrazo fuerte y cuidate.🤗💞

  4. Always love listening to, and following song with your videos.

    Thank you for the wonderful calm you bring to Origami.
