This is a nice design

I folded mine slightly differently, but I really liked the outcome. Thanks for doing these videos for us, Sara!

easy and good looking

easy and good looking .incredible!

I'm trying with small paper

Maybe I shouldn't be doing my first try out of 3.5 inch paper. I've seen the diagrams and it looks like it gets small.

[same person as above] Please

[same person as above] Please don't tell me that size paper yields that size model D:

Don't use too small paper for your first try

The resulting model is quite small compared to the starting size of the paper. So it's better not too use too small paper, especially for the first try.

Hi Cheryl,

Hope this helps,

There's clearly nothing wrong with this video, I'm just a beginner so this was a bit challenging for me, but after a little bit of fiddling I managed to make the flower on the first try! Thanks for an awesome vid!

I linked a related video which shows this. But here it is again: video on how to cut an octagon from a square


in this video, you say that the middle shape is a hexagon, when it's an octagon


Yes, I sometimes screw up terms while I'm doing the videos. Guilty as charged.
