This fold is a little different from most instead of a single large folded piece of paper, it requires the combination of several small (and identical) folds.
You can also experiment with multi-colored poppies by folding two different colored pieces of paper together, then cutting the tip of one layer off to reveal the second color underneath.
Perhaps my favorite thing about this particular fold is the amount of experimentation that can be done to produce slightly different results. Of course, every fold pattern can be experimented with, but this one in particular is conducive to many such experiments. For example, on this one I folded the tips down to give the petals a rounder tip.
And on this one I folded the tip at the center of the flower down to create a star.
Here's the same thing, but with a much bigger center star.
And this one actually has three stars in the center (although the middle one is so small that it's more of a nub than a star).
Fold 1 to 1, crease, and unfold.
Fold 2 to 2, crease, and unfold.
Fold 3 to 3, crease, and unfold.
Fold 4 to 4, crease, and unfold.
Fold 5a to 5a, 5b to 5b, and 5c to 5c. This should produce a three-dimensional result.
Fold 6a to 6a and 6b to 6b, crease, and unfold.
Fold 7a to 7a and 7b to 7b, crease, and unfold.
This last step is the trickiest step: To create the hoop, fold one of the "wings" into the other (they are both double-layered) until they stay on their own.
This fold may be used as a target for the origami catapult (see June 2 blog).
My 8 March 2013 blog about origami prompted me to launch a second blog, one dedicated solely to origami. This way, as I complete instructional sheets, I can post them directly to this blog and it will not interfere with my Beatles blog.
