origami flower
Patin is the name of a french city. Following the link you'll find a site where they tell the whole story. -> mais, en Français...
There they also teach to fold an angle of 36° and so on. Here you'll see an easier way to cut a pentagon (or a 5 points star) without having to measure angles.
And the flower... it's a piece of cake
