Origami roses

Origami roses
The sight of these classy chocolate roses got me into a serious mood to make roses, paperwise that is. And I ended up making 3 different kinds cos’ they look so beautiful that I couldn’t wait to learn to make them all! 1. Kawasaki rose I first tried the Kawasaki rose, named after its creator Toshikazu Kawasaki, by following this demo and cross referenced with another demo [part 2|3]. The leaves are folded based on this tutorial. Notes: There were several steps I had no idea what to do, so after some struggling and hair-pulling, I finally figured out what was going on EXACTLY! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 2. I watched this demo to make the Bird base rose created by James Sakoda. 3. 3. Followed this demo to make this rose bud. Both centre creases must be well-creased mountain folds, so that the folding up of each quarter will be easier. [Update: See how I’ve used one of these roses for a DIY wedding – preview and reveal]

In the last year and a half, I have been constantly improving it, and have adapted it to the Arduino, and even designed an updated controller board for it. Well, It got better.

Ribbon Rose So, I know my over-the-top flowered shoes aren’t for everyone (but I love them, so that’s what matters, right?).
