You can find origami and scrapbooking papers available at any Art & Craft shops. Or simply choose a light color paper and just paint your mom's favorite dress pattern on or whatever you desired.

You'll need:

  • Square piece of paper (for dress)

  • Color Cardstocks (for greeting card)

  • Double-sided tape (to affix dress onto the card)


  • Paper not thicker than 120gsm is much preferred as the folds will be easier to manage. The paper we used here is 120gsm.

  • We used 15cm x 15cm to make our origami dress that fits a greeting card size of A5 size. The finished folded origami dress length is just approx. 5mm shorter than the original paper size. So used this as a guide to decide the size of the origami dress based on your greeting card size.

  • Depending on the thickness of the paper used for the origami dress, the thicker it is then you need to used a stronger glue in order for the dress to stay in position on the cardstock. We finds double-sided tapes easier to manage this is craft.

  • While no glue or tape is required when folding this origami dress, you can apply some glue or tape at some folds at back of the dress to keep the shape in position if necessary.
