For centuries, Origami was used to make traditional objects, like simple boats and birds, until one man finally brought the art form into the modern fold.
Akira Yoshizawa imbued his paper artworks with sublime elegance and sculptural innovation. And much how an origami artist transforms a simple sheet of paper into three-dimensional magic, Yoshizawa — model by model, diagram by diagram, year after year — transformed a child’s pastime into the very art of “living” origami.

The origami lily, also known as the iris, is a beautiful design. It takes a little longer than the other simple flowers, but stick with it, because the end result is worth it!
Make the lily with colourful or patterned paper so it looks it’s best, and you could make a few of different sizes to group together if you like… it creates a lovely display.
