Traditional origami base

This base is named as a "windmill" base because of its shape. This base is very popular when making decorative forms of origami. Once the windmill base's four triangular flaps have been squared into four preliminary folds, it can be used to make much more complex models of origami, such as the kusudama models on the practical lessons. The windmill base is a development of the w-boat base.
