How to make the Origami Rose by Jo Nakashima

 Origami Rose

This video is a step by step tutorial on how to make the origami rose by Jo Nakashima and is the best gift for a loved one. Giving a rose that you have folded yourself is a gesture of pure love and devotion.
In the video you will see how to make a single rose with stems and leaves. To make it a bouquet, you will need to make several and tie them together with a rope, right along the base of the stem. Then wrap the stem in paper, and add a plastic wrapping as well if you prefer, and you should have your finished bouquet.
In my personal opinion, this is one of the easier roses to make, and takes hardly any effort or skills in origami. It also looks extremely beautiful. Have fun with the project
Obviously, a lovely glossy red paper will be very effective for the rose, but for a different take, why not try some cooler colours or patterns?
My paper: color set (any paper like copy paper and origami paper works well) 20cm x 20cm (rose) 4cm x 4cm (leaf) 4cm x 16cm (stem) NO Glue

[Jo Nakashima] For Valentine’s day!

[veronica fernandez] Todo bien, me iba saliendo genial, hasta la parte que empezaste a armar la flor (para darle forma de rosa). La cuadricula la arme, y todo, osea una hora sentada que podria haber utilizado para otra cosa! Muy lindo todo, pero la verdad en el momento de la terminacion de la flor no se explico nada!….NADA MAS QUE DECIR :3 MG SI NO TE SALIO!
[منة الله] Wow ! Awesome! Very talented, thank you ! I am definitely going to try it !
[Yasmin Guadarrama] i messed up at 9:08 and so i made a paper ball ripped it and threw it in the trash car 
[Marco Games] Esta rosa la voy a hacer y se la voy a dar a mi mamá
2 - [Nick Kefaloukos] Really appreciated the small fold diagram as you go. Great idea!
[techno beto] OOOOOHHH , WHAT THE FUCK!!!! I got so mad ! it took me exactly 11:50 just to make this, and than a petal gets torn ! It take me so little because i didn`t make the leaf. HAHAHAHA It take me so little but I got mad with almost all the steps 
[Juan Carlos Castillo Limon] Están bonitas las cosas
[Minahli x] When I was in first grade, there was a guy who gave me an origami flower (it didnt look like the rose here but still good). He didnt give it to me in person but left it on my table during recess, but I figured out it was him :P and then I asked him to teach me how he made it. So we spent a few recesses teaching/learning how to make the origami flower. Then he taught me how to make other origami stuff. So sweet and innocent but the most memorable moments ever. 
[Костя Дегтяренко] Круто ! Полезное оригами .
[Jocsan Menjivar] After min 9 I was DEAD 
[linamunisi] The performer fails to mention the type of origami paper (material) that was used. If you use the regular thin origami paper, you will fail at 7:51 of this video. You need a thicker, tougher, origami paper for this to work, else you will realize at 7:51 that this does not work.
[Cristian Caceres] Una mierda 
[Subra A] +Jo Nakashima Why don’t you help us at 8:51 since that is where we are all getting stuck? When I push on the 2 sides, it does not come together as a nice rectangular box. Where is it that we are messing up in the folding? Everything before 8:51 matches identically to your video. But once I reach 8:51 and do the push, it does not fold nicely into a rectangular box.
