    Hexagon Folded Flowers

    I have attached a .pdf of the hexagon that I used to make my folded flowers. For my own use, since I was making several the same size, I traced the hexagon onto some plastic for use as a template. This technique could be done with just about any size hexagon, depending on your needs. The folded flower will be half the size of your original hexagon.

    Once you have your template, be sure to mark the center of each side, and the center of the hexagon.

    Very clever of you. Thanks for sharing. I suppose you would use this in a wall hanging?

    This is the project where the folded flowers were used. It might also make a nice throw pillow.

    Thanks for the great tutorial for the origami flowers, I am thinking of using them on the blocks I am doing with the "Spike" Quilt Along on the board.
