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)
- index card (or just scrap paper)
- 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.
