If you’ve been following me on Flickr for a while, you’ve probably seen this picture of Carambola Flowers before – I folded them ages ago! But since my Pro account is going to expire in a few days time (and I don’t feel like upgrading it again), a lot of my old photos won’t be displayed anymore. So I decided it would be a good idea to share the very best of them on my blog!
These absolutely beautiful origami flowers were designed by Carmen Sprung and I just love them! Each flower is folded from a single sheet of paper, not from a square though, but from a pentagon. To find out how to fold them follow the link in the description section.
As for paper, I would recommend using fairly thick and strong paper (80-90 gsm) – Tant origami paper will be just the right choice!
