DIamondrose (G. Sturm)

Design : Gerwin Sturm

Paper : One uncut square, Double tissue, 2.2*2.2


A close friend of mine asked for "simple yet beautiful origami flower models for beginners" to try her hand at origami, and I pointed at Gerwin's cute diamondrose. Look it up, it's fairly easy and has potential for a very nice rose !


Since I tend to never discard double tissue, I had the perfect square for a fun added challenge (basically led me through today's handball semi-finals ; go France !). Not perfect, but it deserves points for my first sub-1cm double tissue try !


At this scale, no shaping is possible, and I am not satisfied of the open sink that makes the center of the flower, but the paper won't listen, so... I call it a day =)
