Create a beautiful origami flower pot, the stem holder can hold many stems. Makes a great gift to give a special someone. Tutorial for stem holder & flowers.

I’ve wanted to make an origami plant or flower pot for a long time. The stem holder can also be used to hold an origami cactus, or anything really. 

The stem holder insert is like a model by Makoto Yamaguchi, and this method can be seen in many other origami models as well. The twisted squash fold at the bottom of the holder (photo at bottom of this post) means you can lock it into place, or leave it un-squashed to fit into taller boxes.

Flowers are traditional 8 petals. A tutorial showing the origami flower (with bigger paper) can be found here. I recommend using thicker paper for the stem holder if you have it.
