Carambola flowers

Friday, 07 July 2017 00:00


Certain flower figures have an interesting feature. The corners of the paper sheet serve as the basis for the petals, and there are usually 4 of them. But in the nature one flower most often consists of five petals. To correct this oversight, the origami masters decided to use a pentagonal sheet of paper instead of more familiar, customary rectangular one. This breakthrough has made the creation of a whole series of interesting models with natural and living forms possible.

A good example of such a figure made from the pentagonal base would be the carambola flower from the German origami master Carmen Sprung. Carambola is an evergreen tree from the shores of Sri Lanka and India, which blooms with beautiful pink star-like flowers and beats fruit of the same shape.

The figure itself is not complex, but will require certain attention to detail. If you fold it from a square sheet with a side of 15 cm, the diameter of the finished flower will be about 7 cm. The folding process itself will seem unusual to you, since you will have to take the fifth angle into account.

We will need:
A square sheet of paper and 15 minutes of free time.
Happy folding!
