This page is for those who want the instructions to fold an origami paper stem.  This is a stem that you need when you make a rose flower with calyx, triple leaf, and stem attached together. This stem is the same as hollow stem except two single leaf replaced with two triple leaf. The stem itself is easy to make because paper and glue is all you need. Only thing that you should be aware about this stem is you should handle this stem with great care since inside of the stem itself is hollow.


You may use any kind of paper to fold this stem but I recommend you to use a higher density paper. In this instruction I am using a paper with higher density of 120 g/m^2.

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.
