It took me 1½ years before I decided to fold my Sunflower Tessellation once again, this time from rare yellow Elephant Hide paper. I think this is a better fold, in part thanks to using paper better suited for this kind of model and to using a larger sheet.

The last image shows the precreased sheet, right before collapsing. The precrease and crease pattern are based on a 40×40 grid (5×6 for the molecules and 2×5 for the leaves).
