I love trying out new origami patterns, and this is one of my favourites. This flower is probably one of the quicker and easier origami designs that I have attempted. It consists of five identical petals joined together.
I have seen a whole bunch of these flowers (usually 12 or more) made into 3D balls, which look amazing! These flower balls are called a kusudama, (which means “medicine ball” in Japanese but usually refers to a spherical paper model of identical paper units attached to each other). I haven’t tackled a kusudama yet!
I used the following instructions from the www.kaisercraft.net website: http://www.kaisercraft.net/pdfs/paper-craft/origami-flower.pdf to make my flower. It also shows a kusudama example. If you ever decide to make one, I’d love to know, and would happily post pictures of it on my blog!
I have a few more origami installments coming in the next week or so, but in the next day or two, I hope to share with you some wonderful interior styling that is sure to get your creative adrenalin moving!
Thanks for looking!
