Tanya Duffy of Sydney, Australia has been experimenting!

DuffyDuffy has figured out how to fold six and eight petal versions of the basic flower form (Origami Bonsai P. 50) as well as six and eight petal impatiens (Origami Bonsai  P. 23).  She’s creating 6-petal flowers from a shape similar to the Star of David (two triangles on top of each other).  She has also created an 8-petal flower from a shape that looks like two arrows on top of each other!  Her amazing work will be presented in the March issue of Origami Bonsai Electronic magazine.
