Make flower bouquets or globes with this great project.  A great way to recycle those old magazines and fun to do with the kids.

Whoopee! Can use these at Christmas (red and green wrapping paper) with nametags attache at the table as place settings OR grab yours and sit where you want? Easter with pastels and Thanksgiving with fall colored pages. Why not use a paper cutter to save time with the extra folding?
Terrific origami idea. Thanks for the inspiration.

Dreamingreen writes: If you intend to glue the flowers together to make a globe, I highly recommend making your flowers with five petals instead of six. I tried it with six and it was very awkward and difficult to get a symmetrical-looking globe. Six petals just seem to be mathematically wrong (or maybe it's me). Now I know why the Japanese flower globes that I've seen on origami websites are usually shown with five.
