You may use any kind of paper to fold this traditional origami lotus. Here I am using the same color paper for both the front and the back sides. But you could use one side color only paper without any problem. Make sure the paper that you use is a square (all sides are equal and all the angles equal 90 degrees). This dimension of the paper is 20cm x 20cm.


For this model, a normal origami paper is not recommended. You need to use a tear-resistant paper. I am using a paper of 120g/m^2 here.
