288: Happy Birthday Gemma

Posted by wonko on October 15, 2011 in domestic, flower, geometry |

A friend turns 40 tonight, and quite likes roses, so I thought a paper construction might compliment the rose bush we were taking as a suitable milestone: Made from 40 pieces of paper, this is a variation of Maria Sinayskaya’s “Little Roses” kusudama (rose ball), a curious construction that features triplets of lightly bent petals that interlock […]

277: Azalea

Posted by wonko on October 4, 2011 in flower |

I realise I have not folded many flowers – in my opinion not a lot of them look like flowers: This azalea is pretty good – yes my first fold is a little wonky but I can see how if I were to fold it again I could improve it. A nice design using Rhodes […]

238: Daffodil Day

Posted by wonko on August 26, 2011 in blarg, flower |

In Australia, August 26 this year is nominated as “Daffodil Day”: We celebrate the lives of those brave people who have fought cancer in all it’s forms – to do so we use a flower, the fragile symbol of hope and beauty: I made a white one, then folded 4 in colour and scattered then […]

188: Edelweiss

Posted by wonko on July 7, 2011 in flower |

Now I am on the look out for effective flowers, and oddly Origami has lost of four-petaled ones (which in nature are fairly rare). this edelweiss caught my eye: Made from a frog base and a deep sing, the bloom has a lovely symmetry about it and the stem works will together with it. A simple […]

183: Hummingbird Feeding

Posted by wonko on July 2, 2011 in bird, flower |

I have the greatest of respect for Robert Lang, his models are discussed mathematically and with great artistic intent also, and when I saw this hummingbird in “Origami Design Secrets” I knew I had to make it: Having never actually seen a hummingbird (except on the telly), I am amazed and in awe of their […]

168: Tulips for Jo

Posted by wonko on June 17, 2011 in flower |

Today is my Wife’s Birthday, her favourite flower is a tulip so I had an idea: After researching tulips suitable to stick on a card, I discovered that none were suitable so I invented a fold for that, then I decided that real-size tulips were also a good idea – a dozen a piece I […]

144: Carambola

Posted by admin on May 24, 2011 in flower, geometry |

I stumbled across this nice geometric “floral” design by accident but rather like it’s simplicity: It reminds me of an apple blossom, or a star fruit in cross section Unusually, it is made from a pentagon, and the pre-creasing means the shape is largely just a collapse Busy day, vicious earache, simple but lovely model – enjoy. You […]

128: Mother’s Day Brooch

Posted by wonko on May 8, 2011 in blarg, domestic, flower |

Mother’s Day is a chance to do something nice for Mum, because…. When your Mum is going to be overseas, it takes planning for that to happen: This first fold was completed a couple of weeks ago – snail mail to the UK is slow, so I needed to make the coloured ones for cards […]

66: Golden Slipper Orchid

Posted by wonko on March 7, 2011 in flower |

I have grown these, but the blooms of the cultivars I am familiar with are really tiny yellow leopard spotted flowers – I misjudged the scale (seems a full square from an A4 makes quite a sizeable bloom) A delicate, spidery flower, with a well developed nectary and some interesting folds – if I was […]

39: An Orchid Bloom

Posted by wonko on February 8, 2011 in flower |

Robert J Lang is a living treasure in the origami world for many reasons. He is a mathematician, artist and seeming magician (for he can do with paper the seemingly impossible) but more importantly he specialises in realistic Origami models. It is my Mother-in-law’s birthday today and I thought I would attempt a hideously difficult […]
