Water Lilies and Frogs. Traditional Japanese Origami. Diagram of Water Lily from Steve and Megumi Biddle's 'Amazing Origami for Children'. Frog diagrams in Robert Harbin's "Origami 1'.

The Lily is extremely difficult to fold neatly unless you have the right kind of paper. In this case, wet folding didn't help either, and the final folds did tear the paper a bit. The Biddle's suggest Starched Cloth or Thick, strong paper.
