My learning curve for folding paper lotuses

First layer of petals

After bringing up the first layer of petals as shown in the above you-tube video clip, I would adjust the positioning of the paper lotus such that the 4 petals are centralized.

We wouldn’t want lopsided looking petals.  As such, it’s important to adjust the petals consistently while “blooming” the lotus.

Using the video attached as a reference, you would have noticed that the petals are flipped up in an alternate fashion.
For the first few paper lotuses that I made, I had to concentrate real hard to ensure that I didn’t mess up the sequence in “opening” up the petals.
I went shhhhhhh… at Hubby Dearest when he interrupted my concentration while I was busy with the “blooming”.
Third layer of petals

Once again, I must reiterate that I had to constantly shape the lotus as if I were holding on to a cup but pressing the structure very gently such that I am narrowing the center (or “mouth”) of the lotus.
This is to ensure that the lotus flower wouldn’t be lopsided in shape.
