Fleurogami is the floral variant of origami. Mostly the paper flowers are folded from square origami paper. This is available with colorful patterns, two-tone, but also plain in any well-stocked craft shop to buy - as well as the Falzbein. The Falzbein is a useful tool for Origami and Fleurogami - with this small spatula made of plastic or bamboo, every single fold can be tightened tightly. This makes it more accurate to fold and make the origami flowers even more beautiful. In the following we show you three folding instructions for really fantastically folded paper flowers. One or the other requires a little patience when folding, which is always worthwhile in the end.

Step 1: Place a sheet of origami paper on the table in front of you - if the paper is printed in different colors, the side that should later be outside should point downwards. Fold one diagonal, one tip at a time, so to speak.

Step 2: Now there is a triangle in front of you. Fold up the left and right points along the imaginary center line, to the third point.

Step 3: Next, fold the right and left corners of the square inward, toward the center line - out comes a diamond shape.

Step 4: Now open the fold from the previous two steps. The triangle is now recognizable, along with the folds. Put your fingers in the right half and unlock this corner. Press a diamond shape flat on the table again - repeat this with the left half as well.

Step 5: Then fold the up-facing tips, left and right, down.

Step 6: Now both halves are collapsed again. Result is again a small square.

Step 7: Now bring the left and right tabs together. Carefully trace the resulting curve (on the right of the picture) with your fingers.

Step 8: Open the paper again and glue one of the two tabs. Now reunite the petal - with a clip you can clamp the paper together as long as the glue dries.

Step 9: Now repeat steps 1 through 8 with the four other origami leaves. Then glue all five petals together on the outside in a circle - the origami flower is ready!

If you want to make this Fleurogami flower a great work of art, also called Kusudama, you need 12 of these flowers. These are glued together to a ball.

Step 5: The origami water lily is unfolded now. Open the folds from step 4. Apply it once on the backside.

Step 6: Fold one of the corners folded to the center outward - make the kink one centimeter from the edge. Now fold the corners back in - you see it forms like a petal on the corner.

Step 7: Repeat step 6 with all remaining, three sides.

Step 8: The calyx is already finished - now only the sepals are missing. For that, look at the bottom of the water lily. Fold all four corners outwards in the middle.
