Mohalia, original design by Ancella Simoes

Here’s a beautiful modular origami flower I made recently. This is an original design by Ancella Simoes. Her original post shows a beautiful example of what you can achieve with the right paper. Her site has lots of other great stuff too so be sure to check it out. Click the images for a larger view.

I picked up some Kimono patterned paper at our local book store and chose this one to try out the design. I’m very happy with the results.

The modular components are very easy to make. The original design called for 16 pieces, but mine ended up only using 15. Apparently some variation in my folding or assembly affected the number of pieces required in the final flower.

This is a very elegant design and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes modular origami. The instructions are available in issue 2 of Reference Fold, a free, downloadable e-book by Joshua Goutam. Click the link above and scroll down a bit to find the download link. There are several other free origami e-books you can download there as well, including Reference Fold #1.

Enjoy!
