Origami Iris

Paper used:  a single un-cut square of washi.

Design date:  December, 2007

Base Crease Pattern: 

Origami Iris Base

Design Reference:

Real Iris


I have always liked the traditional iris, but I decided to make one that was a little more accurate.  In some ways this design, like my lotus, is a variation on my hibiscus - I used a very similar design approach, but the shaping folds needed to produce the end result were distinctly different.
