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 is a link to the video showing how to make the box for the strawberries.
Now the question: Who’s up for designing some origami whipped cream to go with this strawberry?
