Altered Origami Flower Ball

I was mucking around with some old book pages last Friday, as I was trying to create a ‘fuller’ flower on a new origami flower ball I was making.

I didn’t want to add another element like ribbon/beads/etc, so I thought about how I could change the folding pattern to make the flowers look different.

This is what I came up with. You like?

Have you ever altered the basic pattern of this cool origami flower ball?
Let me know.

I have also been doing quite a bit of scrapbooking – photos later!
However, what I CAN show you photos of is . . .

. . . . the fireplace I am slowly repointing (‘before’ photos)

      Thanks so much Janet. I am now making more and more of these – I can’t stop ;) Please send me a link if you make one yourself. I’d love to see it.

      • I like the fact that you seemed to use ordinary paper, from book, or newspapers. They created more subtle and earthy, natural feel. I like it. I’ll show you some of mine later. Keep it up!
