Design Reference:


Back in 2010, knowing my particular interest in Origami Flowers, Robert Lang suggested a Cannonball Flower to me as a design subject. I came up with a CP at the time which I was unable to collapse. I decided to give it a try again, but realized the design was flawed - two of the six petals were on the corners (making them only have pleated layers to spread out on one side), and I went WAY overboard with the number of interior points. I fixed those problems and have come up with a more workable CP.
