Poison Joke by Cahoonas Poison Joke by Cahoonas
Designed and folded by me from 25cm square blue double tissue.

Paper version of the infamous blue flower from MLP:FIM. Since canon poison joke was pretty vague on the actual number of petals the flower actually has, I went with five petals. With the way I distributed the paper, this was a happy medium between: four stamens and four petals(too few imo) or two stamens(too few) and six petals. The inner set of petals was also a sort of compromise; I had originally planned to make another set of petals for the inside, but I couldn't find an efficient way to do it.

There's probably a similar design out there as 5 petal flowers aren't anything new. However, hopefully this variant hasn't been done before.

judging by the x + y = 8 juggling you did, I assume you began with the frog base or something like it?

Yeah, make a blintz base, then from that resulting square, make a frog base. Layout-wise, the 5 petals will come from the center of the square's four edges plus one corner and the stamens are from the remaining 3 corners.

So... what pun-based maladies can we expect from your contact with this botanical terror?
