The Kirigami Project - Week 45 - Four Petal Flower

I think kirigami flowers will always be my favourite. There's something quite magical about making a few cuts in a folded piece of paper then carefully unfolding a beautiful bloom. And kirigami shapes quite naturally want to take on flower shapes.

No matter how many times you fold the paper, the same basic formula for flower making holds true - lots of negative space, curved petals and a few stamens to mark the centre.

To create your own kirigami flower, use the template below and the 4-point folding pattern.

Happy flower-making!

The Kirigami Project is collaborative creative project from Marisa Edghill of Omiyage and Geri Jewitt of The Languid Lion. Marisa creates the kirigami designs and Geri turns them into printable templates. Each week in 2014, we will bring you a new kirigami design to fold and cut. Find the treasury of designs here.
