This page is for those who want the instructions to fold a standard origami calyx.  This is a calyx that you need when you put a stem to your rose. It is fairly easy to fold since it requires only a few-steps folding from a so-called "bird base". You also need a stem to connect your calyx as well as rose. In this tutorial, you will be able to make use of a wire-stem to accomplish the goal. I think it would be more sturdy if you use a wire-stem instead of paper.


You may use any kind of paper to fold this base (*it is easier if the front and the back side of the paper are slightly different whether it be in texture or color).

Make sure the paper that you use is a square (all sides are equal and all the angles equal 90 degrees). The paper I am using here is 10cm x 10cm square one.

The paper size of the base should be 1/4 of the rose paper.

However, if your rose is any of "Easy Origami Rose", then your paper for the calyx should be 3/4 of height and width of the paper of your rose.
