FRAGRANT FLOWER: 4
I continue to experiment with the Fragrant Flower.
Type 3 and 4 of the Petal Connector/Stamen is difficult to fold in its final stages. Here is an alternative version. It is easier to fold, but in the final analysis I like the look of the more difficult version better.
Here (in orange) is what the stamen petal connector looks like when it is made up. The top section of the central part (ignore the fold over stamens) is sunken. The more petals there are in the flower the more this section closes up.
Compare this to the earlier model (in pink).
The connected flower is shown with seven petals.
Here is the crease pattern.
