  1. Hello, I recently trying to do this at home, at this is very interesting. Thank you for your tutorial, I’ll always waiting for a new style of origami.
    Whenever I read your tutorial, I always wondering what type of paper did you use to make all of this modular origami? Why they can ‘bloom’ like that? I trying to make the paper ‘blooming’ like that but always end up sharp and not cute. Please help me, I want to make it like yours. Thank you very much
