Anyway, I basically gave up on papercraft flowers a long time ago. Until today, when I decided to give it one more last final go. I chose a lily because, to be blunt, it looked easiest, and had the fewest pieces. It took me all day, but.....
I photoshopped the background out, so the picture would look nicer, and there it is! I actually finished a flower. As you can see from the shine on the stem, I had to wrap it in tape to keep it rolled tight, but otherwise, I'm pretty proud of myself. Not that this changes my mind about papercraft flowers, but you know, baby steps.
