The Kirigami Project - Week 17 - Fiddleheads

Nothing really says Spring to me quite like fiddleheads. Tulips are lovely, daffodils delightful... but when the fiddleheads suddenly sprout, Spring has officially arrived (with a vengeance).

This is, perhaps, the result of one too many Springs spent head down in a wooded glen, walkman blaring, plucking tightly coiled (but not too tightly coiled) fiddleheads until baskets overflowed, fingernails were firmly caked with dirt and, when you closed your eyes, the green buggers filled your minds eye.

So, you see, though I've given up on the picking, I will always associate those gentle green spirals with Spring. This design incorporates those classic fiddlehead spirals of unfurling fronds - which are a little tricky to cut, but well worth a try!

To create your own Fiddleheads kirigami design, use the template below and the 6-point folding pattern.

The Kirigami Project is a collaborative creative project from Marisa Edghill of Omiyage and Geri Jewitt of The Languid Lion. Marisa creates the kirigami designs and Geri whips them into template shape! Each week In 2014, we will bring you a new kirigami design to fold and cut.
