Flower Ball Lantern Origami

We can reference this video from YouTube to make a Flower Ball Lantern.
From the video, we need to fold 60 triangles altogether. 5 triangles to form a "flower drum", combine 6 "flower drums" to form the flower ball.

During Chinese New Year, some Chinese do not like to see the "white" sides of the flower ball lantern. I think one way to solve this is to get 30 pieces of square Red Envelopes (Ang Bao), fold them into half triangle, then use a pen knife to cut the triangles. Alternatively, use square paper that is red on both sides to cut the triangle.

I'm going to try make this one when I'm free.
