Picture of 3D Geometric Art

Inspired by Fibonacci spirals, I came up with some paper art (I'm calling this one Fire Flower for apparent reasons) using minimal origami. I folded some paper and experimented with units before deciding that I liked this design best. It was simple yet beautiful--anyone's favorite combo, I'm sure.

Step 1: Materials

  • origami paper
  • glue + scrap piece of paper
  • thicker paper (for background)
  • ruler
  • pencil
  • index card (or just scrap paper)
  • scissors
  • OPTIONAL: beads and embellishments, poster paper for frame

Step 2: Designing

Here's the time to plan out your artwork if you choose to do something different from my design. See above for possible ideas. Look at different art (perhaps search for geometric art) -- you'll never know what can inspire you. The picture of my inspiration, for example, was this: a picture of Fibonacci sequences in action in aloe plants.

Feel free to wing everything, should you wish, but I find that it's a good idea to have an idea in mind prior to working. I suggest folding a few units for experimenting (see next step for folding) to guide you in finding out what you can and cannot do.

Simple but amazing craft. The sunset colour theme is really nice

Wow! I love your color scheme, and the two additions you attached to the corners of the frame look lovely!

By the way, check your inbox; I sent you a little gift. ;)

Thanks sooo much :)

Yes I did but it didn't turn out as good as yours
watchmeflyy (author)  leah12895 months ago

Psh I'm sure it looks lovely all the same. Post a picture? I'd love to see it. ^^ Practice makes perfect (cheesy as it may sound) so perhaps your next attempt will elicit more of your pride.

I love the side view picture, it shows the 3D part really well!

Thank you! I was just turning the artwork around while admiring it and thought,"Hey, this angle looks really nice." Then I put it on the wall and took a picture at that angle. ^^
