Origami Flowers: Primroses

Spring is almost here. Let's celebrate it by folding some colorful origami flowers!
The Primroses were designed by Benjamin Coleman. The instructions can be found in his book Origami Bonsai.
The vase is a variation of a traditional kusudama piece (video instructions can be found here).
I folded the flowers with 3" (75 mm) squares of TANT paper, and the vase with a 6" (150 mm) square of scrapbook paper.

Origami Boxes: Triangular Flower Box

This is another beautiful box designed by Tomoko Fuse.
Origami Boxes: Triangular Flower Box
The instructions can be found in the book, Stylish accessory who make the unit origami, by Tomoko Fuse.

It's a modular box. I folded the box with six 6" (150 mm) squares of scrapbook paper, three for the lid and three for the base, plus another 6" (150 mm) square of washi paper for the flower that's locked inside the lid.
