The flowers above are a creation of Ildikó Vass, inspired by a box I designed and featured in another post. To make her flower, she sank the bottom of the box, and pushed the sides to the central axis. The flaps of the box became the petals. Then she made a smaller one and inserted it into the bigger one to create the center of the flower.
I made a couple of variations of her flower, shown below, making the bigger module into the leaves and the smaller into the flat petals. Then I added a third module made with a traditional flower base.
I invite you to play and come up with your own variations!
TIP TO MAKE THE FLOWER:
Watch this video of my box and leave the model sunken as shown on minute 6:25. Then shape the flaps of the box into petals or leaves.
