Writable origami request

Post by vinnie »

I introduce myself, I am a profane of origami, I have always liked them but I have never had the patience or precision to learn them.
But now I wanted to make a gift to a girl who doesn't talk to me anymore.
I have to give her an umbrella back, and I want to hide it inside an origami with some written thanks for having known me (a sort of kind farewell).
I would simply like to write thanks to the center and add a couple of sentences by opening the flower.
Could somebody help me? I don't know how to look!
Thanks :)

There's a couple of things I don't understand of what you're saying.

What is an "umbrella back"?

What is it that you want to fold in origami? A box? A flower?

Vinnie meant to give the person back an umbrella that for some reason belongs to this person, but Vinnie has it.

Oh! That makes a lot more sense :P. Thanks Brimstone.

I still don't understand what is it that you wish to fold vinnie.

From what I gathered Vinnie wants a flower that he can write a note on it (maybe on the outside) and then open the model (but maybe not unfolding it? I don't know) and have more text inside. I don't know any model that could work like that.

But he also mentions wanting to hide the umbrella inside a fold, so that confuses me.

I think he means "to hide the fold inside the umbrella", and not the opposite.

I think we have a case here of "non-native English speaker attempts to read other non-native English speaker's writing and gets very confused."

I hope it's not the rainy season where the owner of the umbrella lives, because apparently this is going to take a while.
