HOW TO FOLD A FLOWER
I made the pattern for this paper by hand with
color pencils. You get a little brighter
then normal when you use color pencils.
This is the front of the paper. The
backside is completely red.
Make mountain-and valley-folds over
these 4 lines.
Unfold each fold after you made one.
Make a valley-fold over these 4 lines.
Fold the ends back to the outside of the
model by making
a valley-fold over these 4 lines.
Make these folds from the edge of the
model to the center,
not any further.
First, make a valley-fold over the 2
lines below. Then, make
a mountain-fold over the 2 lines in the
middle. And make
a valley-fold over the 2 lines on top.
Now you get a sort of basic-shape.
Prefold the model over this line.
Unfold the model until it looks like the
figure of step 4.
(In the picture of step 7 the yellow
center is on the other side).
Now the center of the model has to be
by making a mountain-fold over these 4
Hold the model on the edge with one
hand. Then make the
mountain-folds one by one with your
These folds are already prefolded in
Here a part of the folds from step 7 is
Make mountain and valley-folds over
these 6 lines. The 2 shortest
lines are the mountain-folds. These 6
lines are already prefolded.
Make these folds by first pressing on
the model at the places
indicated with the 2 smaller arrows and
then pressing on the
places indicated with the large arrows.
The model looks like this from above.
In the middle is the yellow center that
you've folded down
in step 7 to 9.
Fold the petal downwards by making an
inside reverse fold over
these 3 lines. Do this by making a
mountain-fold over the line
in the middle and a valley-fold over the
other 2 lines.
The 2 ends at the smaller arrows are
pulled towards each other
when you make these folds.
This arrow indicates the same end that
is indicated with the
large arrow in step 11.
Repeat step 11 on the other 3 same
Now the model looks like this
Make a valley-fold over this
line. Make this fold over all layers
of the petal.
Do the same as above on the other 3
Press on the edges from above
on the places indicated with
the 4 arrows.
You get a nice full yellow center after
The flower is ready!
