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
<p>Thanks! :D</p>
