How to make origami rose paper flowers


If you haven't folded any origami rose before, welcome to the fun of folding origami rose flower. Since we are dealing 3D-model here, it might be very hard for you to get started with 3D rose initially. There are many sites giving instructions for 2D-models (you can search the web using "origami" as a key word). If you are confident with 2D-models, then you can start with "Easy Origami Roses" here. They are easy compared to other intermediate/advanced models but you might find them to be difficult since they are one dimension higher than 2D-models. But before start working on Easy Rose, you need to know some basics of origami folding techniques known as valley-fold and mountain-fold. They are shown in How To Make Origami page. After you learned what valley-fold and mountain-fold are, you need to practice them with some simple origami models. If you have not folded an origami crane before, it is a good practice to learn it now. Origami crane will teach you not only valley and mountain folds but also more advanced technique called "inside reverse-fold". If you are becoming comfortable with these roses, then you can start working on intermediate-level origami roses such as Standard or Spiral Rose. Try to learn all of intermediate-level roses and if you are becoming comfortable with these roses, then you are ready to work on advanced-level roses such as angled Kawaski rose. Please be patient and don't rush. If you do it gradually, then some day you will be able to fold a the advanced-lelvel rose that you would have dreamed about.

 

Good luck!
