This page is for those who want the instructions to fold a Superior 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 more folding steps from the standard calyx. 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. I think Superior Calyx is superior to standard calyx with two points: (1) it resembles to the real calyx more closely and (2) since you can put glue on the center region, you don't need to glue on the edge. This is nice since it is very easy to put more glue on the edge which requires a clean-up with tissue paper later.


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.
