    This looks really cool, but no offense, this isn't real origami. Origami uses nothing but paper and folds. Nonetheless, it's a cool project. I just wish you didn't call it origami.

    I love this flowers. I've made a lot of them!

    I've used a long green string so I can use it to hang the flower.

    And then I did another more or less 200 to complete the ceiling of two classrooms:
