Disney’s A Wrinkle In Time is NOW on Blu-Ray/DVD!  Plus, check out this fun tutorial which shows you how to make an origami tulip.

Last Feburary I attended the red carpet premiere for A Wrinkle In Time which stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling.  A Wrinkle In Time is now available on Blu-Ray/DVD TODAY (June 5th), you can check out my A Wrinkle In Time movie review here.  In honor of the DVD/Blu-Ray release, I given a fun movie night package on behalf of Disney.  With Summer vacation just beginning, this was the perfect time to have a fun movie night with my girls!  Check out the unboxing video below:

As you can see, the girls were super excited for a slumber party movie night and were ready to start all the activities that were sent.  They were particularly interested in the origami set sent, having never tried making origami figures before.  I have to admit, I was just as excited as the girls were and ready to also get my origami on.  As we began to start folding out origami figures, just like Meg did in the movie, the girls became frustrated.  Who knew origami could become so difficult?  We slowed down a bit and went step by step making this origami tulip together.  Here is a tutorial just for you!

We were given a stack or origami squares in all different colors, we started off with a pink square for the “flower” part of the tulip.

Fold the paper in half, corner to corner.

Take one of the bottom corners and fold up towards the middle of the opposite side.

Repeat this on the second corner, making a tulip shape.

Fold the very bottom tip in, making a flat surface.  You can either use tape or glue to help keep the folds in place.

Now on to the “stem” part of the tulip.

Like making a paper airplane, fold up each side to meet in the middle.

Then fold in half along where the two folds met.

Take the bottom corner and fold to the middle of the opposite side.  This gives the stem a ‘leaf’ look.

The girls absolutely loved A Wrinkle In Time, the movie really targets their age group.  And we had a blast with the acitivites, body jewels and temporary tattoos but the best part was the time spent together.  Memories like these will last a lifetime and I will treasure every moment together!
