A box with a ribbon bow, constructed using a molecule of my Sunflower Tessellation and with color change. This is a variant where the ribbon runs along the diagonals rather than parallel to the sides (in contrast to this version.

During the recent German Origami Convention, I was asked to show how to fold this model and had issues recreating it. We ended up folding a slightly different variant and only in the next morning did I remember how to fold the original. But if more time had passed since designing (here it was just three months), I might not have been able to recall it so easily from memory. This is just why it’s important to keep good documentation on all designs.
