Origami Tessellation: Repeating Rhombus Flowers

Rhombus Flowers Origami Tessellation

 Sometimes for inspiration I'll go into my old saved photos of tesses that I've found on the internet.

Some are quite old and I don't recall how I obtained them or from where they came.

One such photo I had saved caught my eye and I knew that I hadn't ever attempted to re-create it before now. So I thought I'd finally give it a go.

The original design was more spread out and used a larger grid. The hexes and the rhombuses had a pleat of space between them.

I had to shrink things somewhat to get it to fit nicely on a 32 pleat grid.

This however, also made it a lot more difficult to fold the rhombuses around the hexagons.

Then again, I've always been a sucker for tightly packed tessellations. 

I didn't bother to create a crease pattern. It's a pretty straight forward fold.
