Thanks to reader Christoper from Richardson, TX for his origami lily - " Lily with makeshift stem. Stem folded all the way down into long thin strips, then unfolded and refolded into a rectangular tube, then take the end piece and roll it back at the top to create a leaf. I strayed from the origami norm by making a few slits down the top of my stem so that my lily would fit snugly."
From Jeff in West Hartfod "My niece brought me some origami paper from Japan for Christmas. Your site is the best one I've found for instructions, and I'm making my way through it!"
From Allie "I had to cut a small hole in the bottom of the Lily so that it would fit over the top of the stems (I had to make two stems since the lily was too heavy and kept tipping over!)."
Allie - Love your lily with stem!

This origami proved to be a hit and a lot of her students are clamoring for more Origami Flowers. "
