By using the flower module, it’s possible to make a variety of flowers: Rose, Sunflower and Poppy. This flower module can be used as a decorative element on the wicker models from the 'Origami Chic' book. It's better to use paper, colored on both sides, for example, regular copy paper.
|SUNFLOWER. Make the flower module; you could roll its middle flaps like in the rose. Also make eight petals, according to the leaf diagram. For each petal, use a square of paper, one quarter the size of the square used for the flower module.||Insert the longer pointed end of the petal between the outer layers of the flower module as far as it will go. Insert the other petals and lock the petals’ ends by rolling the middle flaps of the flower module. You could insert the stalk together with one of the petals.||
Here is the completed Sunflower.
By inserting eight leaves into the flower module it results in a flower like a sunflower, a dahlia and so on.
