Last night in DC! I’m super excited to get back home tomorrow. Earlier today I had decided to try the origami tulip, but when I got back to the hotel I was browsing for the directions and I came across directions for the origami lotus. It looked nice and not too hard, so I decided to try it instead. The instructions are pretty straight forward, but I think my paper is too thick. I tore two sheets trying to fold it. After that I went back to the tulip. I folded a tulip and stem. I think they came out nice enough but I would have liked to start with more even squares. I’m having to trim the tops of the paper by hand, and I think perfect squares would have helped me get cleaner folds.
