From Jeff in West Hartford: "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 reader in Ireland:
From Arne: "There's a slight difference from your Lotus. Just before folding the first 4 petals up, I slightly bend the corners inwards. Then the lotus stays together better. I also made a little hole in the middle and at the base of one of the secondary petals, then stuck a hairpin through it. Just for fun."
From Jammy in Ottawa "This is my origami Lotus Flower. It's not very good since this is the very first one I've ever made. Also, I know the paper looks a little strange, it's because i didn't have any origami paper, so i used blank paper and colored it in myself. Hope you like it! :)"
Jammy - I think your origami lotus is great! Coloring the paper yourself only makes it more unique!

From reader in Stratford " This is my first origami lotus, made with the origami paper that I got for Christmas. I've made it for my wife as it's nearly Valentines day. "
From Cody of Atoka " This is the gift I made for my girlfriend for Valentine's Day. I used the instructions for the Origami Lotus Flower, and I think these turned out amazing! For the stems, I made a small hole in the bottom of the flower and ran pipe cleaners through the hole. Then I put it in a vase, and decorated it with some decorative marbles. Thanks so much for these instructions and tips!! :) "
Cody - What a fantastic and beautiful bouquet of origami lotuses! I'm sure your girlfriend will cherish them for a long time! Thanks for sending the photo in!
