Lotus Blossom of Many Colors


I did a review of Alice Hendon’s ‘More Tangle Starts‘ book a couple of weeks ago. My first thought when I opened the book was that the paper would be fabulous for Origami. So I did one.

I used to do these Lotus Blossoms all the time, but it’s been a while, so it took me days, and I had to redo a lot of it. I did manage to tear in a couple of places because of the redos, but I was actually impressed at how well the paper held up.

Because it’s been so long, I checked out a tutorial. If you are interested in making one of these, the video is here.

Which came first – the chicken or the egg? And by asking that question, I claim this as my response to the Doodlewash prompt: Egg

Did you know that when hens ‘talk’ to their unhatched chicks, the chicks peep back?
