Dear Illusive -

You are exactly right! I apologize for the delay, this past month has been very chaotic for me. I'm finally finding time to breathe again smile

Please send me a PM with your address and with the color of flowers you'd like! Also if you'd like curled lily petals or straight iris petals smile

Re: Win a Bouquet of 12 Origami Flowers - 12/01/12 02:48 PM

thanks for responding ..

is there a chance i could see the difference of the curled petals and straight with pictures, and what color papers are available to choose from...so i can figure out what will best go with someones home decor colors?

thanks kindly...once i figure that out i can go on from there to email with where to be sent...

EDITED

ok i just poked about some in here again regarding the flowers and am i correct in assuming the curled ones would be like your rose flowers? If so im leaning more toward the straight.

also would like to see the paterns and colors available to choose from.

Thanks.

Re: Win a Bouquet of 12 Origami Flowers - 12/01/12 03:22 PM

after looking about this is what im considering and leaning to

is the two flowers under PURPLE AND ORANGE grouping as i love the blend of like rainbow wash affect to the flowers with also maybe a blue choice with it about the same blue color as whats showing in the center of the purple flower so there would be three color mixes of purple, orange and blue if i can see some blue choice paper of the same wash affect for that rainbow look as i call it.

Dear Illusive Fantasy -

I'm afraid origami paper companies come out with fresh paper designs every year, so they are always changing. When I have people look at my site I say they can choose a color theme but rarely an actual pattern smile.

I went through all my paper and spent the past couple of days folding some sample flowers for you in the patterns that I do currently have. I'll post those images shortly!

Those are all the tie-dye patterns I have.

For samples of styles of regular patterns I have, you can look here -

Note that origami companies change their patterns yearly so I won't necessarily have an exact pattern on hand, but if you tell me the colors you want I can generally find that color combination smile.
