Learn How to Make the Challenging Origami Rose

Introduction:

The origami rose may be a bit tricky to do, but with lots of patience and practice, you will be able to create this intricate masterpiece beautifully. For this origami activity, use thin origami paper. That way, you can curl the rose petals to make them look softer and more realistic. The paper used in the instruction below uses a single-sided colored paper which helps to follow the procedure a lot better, but any paper  will do.

Difficulty Level: Hard

The first thing to do is to face the colored side of the origami paper upwards.  Fold it crosswise in half. Crease well and then unfold.

Fold and crease the origami paper twice in half on both the upper and lower part. Follow along the dashed lines. Make sure the paper is divided into four equal parts after being unfolded.

Make four more crease marks by folding and unfolding along the dashed lines. The paper should now be divided into 8 parts because of the crease marks made.

Fold the origami paper lengthwise in half. Crease well and unfold.

Follow along the dashed lines and make two more crease marks. Make sure the paper is divided into four equal parts after being unfolded.

Make four more crease marks by folding and unfolding along the dashed lines. Doing this will from an 8×8 grid (crease marks) on the origami paper. Make sure that each square has the same size. They will be used as a guide to form the paper into a rose.

Bring the top part of the paper downwards along the dashed line. Use the crease grid marks as a guide on where to fold.

The dashed line is located in between the 3rd and 4th horizontal crease marks. Please fold it exactly there.

Flip the origami paper to the other side.

Fold the top layer upwards along the uppermost crease mark. Follow along the dashed line as shown.

Bring the left edge to the right. Follow along the dashed line as illustrated above.

The dashed line is located in between the 3rd and 4th vertical crease marks (starting from the left side). Please fold it exactly there.

Turn the origami paper to the other side.

 

Fold the top layer to the right. Fold along the dashed line as illustrated above.

The dashed line for this step is located at the rightmost vertical crease mark.

 

Flip the paper to the other side.

Diagonally fold the top left corner to the bottom part. Use the yellow dots as a guide on where the top left corner should land. Once folded, ONLY crease along the dashed line and then unfold.

Diagonally fold along the dashed line as shown. Use the yellow dots as a guide on where to fold. same as the previous step, make a crease only along the dashed line and then unfold.

Repeat steps 15 &16 to make another diagonal crease line. Make sure to follow the placement of the yellow dots and only crease along the dashed line.

Create another diagonal crease mark by folding along the dashed line. Again, make sure to follow the placement of the yellow dots and only crease along the dashed line. Once unfolded, flip it over to the other side.

Deepen the crease marks along the dashed lines. Do so by folding and unfolding the paper along the dashed line. It is crucial that the crease marks are exact and deep to make the paper twist into a rose.

Now comes the rose twist. Hold the paper along the yellow dots with both hands. Rotate the paper as you push the paper inwards. The crease marks made in the previous step will help form the paper into a box figure.

Your origami rose should now look like this in  SIDE  VIEW.   To make one of the petals of the rose, lift the right flap then tuck the left flap inside along the dashed lines.

Repeat the previous step on the other flaps.

Roses have many layers so fold diagonally on each of the outer flaps.

Your origami rose is done! Make it a  beautiful décor anywhere or stick it to a card and give it to someone special.

This flower is really tricky to do, but as you keep on practicing, it will become a lot better over time. If you’re looking for easier ones, try these to make other flowers here!
