The origami rose is a very popular creation in Asia at this moment.
There are already quite a few directions as to folding a rose but this one in particular
is different. While other origami roses use the conventional origami paper, this one
requires creased paper (a very stretchable and flexible kind).
The dimensions should be 60cm in
length and 8cm in width. Fold the piece horizontally in half.
Fold the right top side as shown above.
Align the top and fold it into half again.
The right tip folds over to the left, whereby aligning it to the left side.
Following the diagonal line, fold it backwards. It is important to press on
the fold lightly at this point.
Hold onto the tip that is circled and roll it around toward the same
direction. Note: the parallel lines indicate the twisting/rolling around the inner rose
Be careful not to press too hardly on the circled part or else the rose will
not have the opulent effect at the end. After turning the piece around, you will have an
extra 2cm at the end. Fold that piece over to the back as indicated above.
Repeat step 7 until you don¡¯t have any more paper
left to twist it around again. Fold the residual piece and conform it to the rose.
Use a wire and flower tape to fasten the rose. Lastly, secure the stem to the
flower. The rose is ready!
