Step 9: The Trickiest Part

OK Now this is the trickiest part of the flower so you might want to look at the pictures a couple of times to understand.

Lift the bottom flap (the point of the diamond shape) up.

Fatten it making sure that the bottom flap stays over the top flap. Like I said You might want to take an extra look at the pictures.
I don't mean to be rude, but you seem to leave out some valuable information -- and also perform this flower in a much more difficult way than it has to be. . . At this point, all of my Instructables are origami (Mainly because I used up all my supplies for the really cool things), and I hope you will not take offense if I decide to make my own Instructable for this same/similar model. . . <br /> <br />Oh, and this piece is commonly referred to as an &quot;Iris&quot;. I didn't really read the whole thing through, so I'm not sure if you went over that already. . .
I can understand the confusion for some, and I will say this: Origami Instructables are difficult to make, and often difficult to follow. Although I haven't made one (for the above reason) I am very familiar with origami. This is one of the better 'ibles I've seen, but I still say a video is the way to go if you want to make an origami 'ible. Good Job!
Completed and thank you. The only step that hung me up was step 9 but a little bit of reasoning and I sorted it out.<br><br>Thanks again!
Ummm it sota get hard here........
dude ur missing a step<br>
how do u do it again on the 3 and 4 fold???????????
Hard set,,<br /> Start folding it from the pointy side at the top down words, makes it easyer<br />
i dont know this step do you thinku can explain me more please<br />
after i do the second one i dont know how to do the 3rd and 4th
I found this very easy to follow.&nbsp; It took me a few rewinds of the vid for step 8, but other than that, very simple.<br />
Got it. After you unfold the tiny flaps from step 8, take the very bottom tip of that central piece and fold it all the way up to the top tip. While you do this, the paper should form a sort of awkward cup shape, flatten the sides of that &quot;cup&quot; down so they meet in the middle.<br /> <br /> Unfold step 8<br /> Tip to tip<br /> Flatten the sides so they meet in the middle (Will look like picture 4)
*Reads directions*<br /> &quot;God dammit.&quot;<br />
This type of flower is called &quot;Iris&quot;, it will look better if you dimple the petals with scissors. You can paste it a stem and paint it using a spray.<br /> <br /> <br /> Sorry, I know my english is not very cool. :D<br />

Sorry, I'm making a video that'll hopefully make it easier to understand, and also taking better pictures. This part is very easy, look carefully at the pics.
Tricky! But managed my first tonight!!! Was stumped at step 8 for ages.... didn't realise you meant to fold the creases then unfold them. Cheers, Steve
You might just be the first person to actually get it right. I realize this is a bit confusing, and I'm gonna redo this entire instructable, but I'm busy with finals this month, so its gonna have to wait. When you finally manage to get it right, its a great feeling. It took me about 20 tires to get one right, end even that one was crooked and not symmetrical.....
please could u post a video, i kindaa need to make those flowers for my art exam.
please explain step 7 in more detail please
This is causing a lot of confusion, I'll post a video eventually...
do you think that you oculd make take some better pictures for step 9? i can't get it right and i was going to make one of these for my girlfriend... maybe some side views?
Im sorry, I'll have to remake this thing all over again.... It was a bit rushed.....it was for a contest...
Agh, I don't understand this part, i've been staring at it for a really long time. I just simply can't do it but still, thanks for uploading this :)
Keep trying!!!! I might make a video some other time....
Where did you upload the video? This is so confusing!!
I haven't made a video yet. I will. Someday.....hopefully....
