Things you will need to make the Tricolour Paper Craft
- Origami Papers in Orange, White and Green
- Indian Flag Chakra Template
There’s a specific motive behind my choice of origami paper! Origami paper is thin, making it simple to fold, and it’s ideal for creating this craft without the need for any cuts.
Naturally, you can achieve an identical outcome using construction paper as well.
Directions to make the India Flag Tricolour Paper Craft
Grab three origami papers in the colours orange, white, and green. Begin by folding each paper in half.
Now, initiate the process of creating accordion folds, with each fold being approximately 1cm in width.
Making an accordion fold is a simple task! Just fold the paper forwards and backwards alternately, and you’ll have it ready in a jiffy.
When you’re finished, unfold the paper and make a cut at the centre to create six separate accordion folds.
Next, glue the ends of the 6 pieces together following the Chain of two oranges, one white, two greens, and finally another white.
You’ll now possess an elongated strip of tricolour folded paper.
Our next step is to adhere to the ends of the strip, forming a circular ring-like structure!
For the chakra design, you can either draw a 4cm chakra and affix it at the centre, or you can download our free printable chakra template located at the end of this post to assist in this craft.
The template features chakras in three sizes, and the medium-sized chakra, measuring 4cm, is the one to cut and affix.
Utilize tape to attach the chakra at the centre, and your craft will be ready for display.
Make a Tricolour Badge for kids
With a slight modification, you can create a lovely badge for kids.
Adjust the accordion fold’s width to half (equivalent to 1/4th of the origami length) and reduce the fold to 0.5cm instead of 1cm.
This will yield a 10cm diameter circular badge, perfect for children to wear!
