My thoughts:

I made a number of these since I really liked them. I wanted to see if they were cuter if they were made smaller. I think they would be but I had problems working with the smaller paper and both of the smaller ones ended up with the same error. As I was writing this I made another attempt at the smaller one and figured out my error. At 5:45 you fold a little triangle up. You repeat this step four times. If you miss one then one of the points in the end is missing and the model won’t sit right.

My thoughts:

A lot of the early romantic gifts that I gave my wife back when we were dating were origami. Flowers however were the bane of my existence. Most that I tried failed. So making flowers for my wife were high on my list of ones to try. Somewhere I started calling it a lily but the video simply calls it a flower.

Happy: 9/10 It came out the way it should and it looks good.

Relaxed: 9/10 I didn’t have a single problem. I did have to rewind a few times but more because I had missed something not that I didn’t understand it.

Intellectual: 6/10 It was pretty easy and therefore not much of a challenge for my brain.
