Kawasaki rose

Origami Kawasaki rose blue Origami Kawasaki rose red

This rose was designed by Toshikazu Kawasaki. The roses in the pictures are folded from a single square sheet of paper (red rose, both blossom and leaf: 20 x 20 cm, blue rose: 15 x 15 cm), respectively. The red rose measures 5 x 3 x 5 cm, but the size may vary depending on how it is folded. With a little practice, it can be folded in about ten minutes. The origami rose as well as the leaf both have a symmetrical shape which is often found in nature. You can achieve different growing stages of roses by varying the final folding steps and shaping the edges towards the center. The rose also makes an excellent little gift.

Kawasaki designed several roses, including this different rose, which looks a little more complex.
