Reverse Engineering Shrinking Violets by GatheringFolds


 When I'm stuck for a new idea of my own, I'll usually just try to figure out how to fold someone else's. In this case I went with another one by Madonna Yoder @gatheringfolds. 

Her designs are both beautiful and accessible. They provide some challenge, but not so much as to be frustrating. 

I think she called this one shrinking violets. A pretty cool title for sure. 

The concept of small hexagons on one side and larger open back hexagons on the other side is an intriguing one. 

I kind thought of the same idea on my own, but never got to the point of creation. 


Laziness prevailed, and instead, I just reverse engineered hers. 

It's a lot easier to figure out someone else's finished idea than it is to fully realize your own concept. 

On the plus side, I have found, that figuring out other origami designer's models provides inspiration for new ideas. 

But for the time being, I have folded hers. 

We'll have to see what comes next.
