Origami Flowers: Columbines

Colorful origami flowers can be used as beautiful decorations to brighten your desktop, like these columbines in the pictures below.

The Columbines 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) ,  6" (150 mm), and 8" (200 mm) squares of TANT paper and Folia Origami Paper, and the vases with 6" (150 mm) squares of scrapbook paper.
