Origami Modular 5-Petal Flower
Flowers are something that pleases us at any moment of our lives. But sometimes even live flowers get boring and you want something new. In this case, the art of origami has prepared for us dozens of coolest schemes for creating flowers from paper. One of them we will share with you today. And this is not a simple flower, but a modular figure consisting of five elements, which gives it additional volume. This origami model is called the Tomoko Fuse flower, after the name of its creator.
Take a 10 x 10 cm square piece of paper. You can choose any color of paper (either origami paper or regular colored paper), but if your paper is colored or has a pattern, place your sheet with the pattern facing down. You can also use a larger square to make up big colorful flowers, but we recommend starting with a 10 x 10 cm sheet.
Fold the paper in half along the vertical axis. Iron the fold line, and then unfold and straighten your sheet.
Fold the top corners towards the center axis, and then unfold the folds and flatten the sheet without mashing the fold lines.
Now fold the two top corners so that they match the diagonal fold lines obtained after going through Step 2.
Now you should go back a couple of steps and unfold your paper to the point where you started in Step 6.
Now, similar to the photo below, make a “valley” fold, and compose the top layer of your piece.
Fold the left side of your product to the center. Carefully iron the fold line, pressing one piece against the other.
After endless repetitions, you’re finally at your goal! You have a three-dimensional modular origami flower with 5 petals!
We used multicolored paper, but here it all depends on your imagination, so you can use any shades and patterns for your flowers. In our opinion, this origami is one of those types of art, where you can safely experiment with prints and colors.
