Origami Video Tutorial – Poppy Flower, Bud, and Stem

A model design of Leyla Torres

Do you like to fold origami flowers? You’re in luck! Here at Origami Spirit, we feature origami models we know you’ll enjoy so be sure to visit the FLOWERS, FRUIT & FOOD GALLERY GALLERY.

Poppies are perfectly joyful to welcome the warm season. I developed this flower based on The Spanish Eye Flower, a previous design shared in this Origami Spirit post.

For the Poppy Flower, the basic design was modified by making it with pentagonal paper and varying some folding points of reference.

In addition, you can fold different buds and stems to make a flat composition suitable for a greeting card.
