What a great sense of satisfaction it is when we puzzle over an origami crease pattern and are finally able to fold a model!
A few days ago, I once again neglected everything else my life and spent a few hours folding from crease patterns that Hans-Werner Guth (Germany) has shared on his Flickr page. Hans is so prolific. He must be folding twenty four hours a day, every day!
It was long past midnight when I finally figured out one of Hans’s geometric flowers. Once we get into it, who needs sleep anyway!
Here is an easy folding sequence I developed, shared in the following video –with Hans’s permission, or course.
And if we want to go beyond the pleasingly peaceful act of folding this geometric beauty, we can add a pin to the back of the flower, stick it on our hat, and make an origami fashion statement ;-)
