This page is for those who want the instructions to fold a super origami calyx.  This is a calyx that you need when you put a stem to your rose. It is somewhat difficult to fold compare to the standard origami calyx. If you have not folded the standard calyx yet, please learn it first before working on this calyx.


There are two advantages for the super calyx: (1) you can put glue on the center region and (2) there is no sticking-out stuff on the side.


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.
