I just came from my paper garden with a container full of delicious fruit! This is a perfect example of how a small transformation applied to an existing model creates a new one.
David Donahue studied a small bell decoration* designed by Paul Jackson, and, by devising small flaps that show the other side of the paper, added some “leaves” and created a strawberry.
Using red and green paper and rounding the tip just a bit the result is a sweet and succulent origami treat. Bravo, David!
Here is a video showing how to make David Donahue’s origami strawberry…
… and here’s how to make a box to hold all those strawberries.
What about some origami whipped cream?
