Origami Rose Nation, Rising!

O3 Rose Flag

A Chad Stewart from some place Southern writes in to say, “Hey, y’all! where’s the phreakin’ diagrams?”

Em. Haven’t made them yet. We will, but we’re still waiting for understanding to take place. (Ours, that is; yours will come later.)

Of course, if the world stopped every time we didn’t understand something, we’d still be negotiating with Khrushchev. Here’s a slightly improved Crease Pattern for your experimentation pleasure.

After I drew this, I realized this model has up and down to deal with. Okay, this is the underside of the rose you’re looking at, and the spiral will come towards you as you twist it, to form the top of the stem. The other side of the paper will be surface of the petals — no lines showing.

I’m not positive this CP is 100% accurate, but we’ll see. It’s the side locking that’s the real tricky part.

Here are some other shots:

    What a gorgeous rose! I’ve folded 2-3 varieties, but have never seen yours. Where can I find the diagrams? thanks

    Hey Larry,

    There are any diagrams yet — kind of what the post is about. There may be in future. In the meantime, you might want to try the crease pattern, linked above.

    And, given your IP address, I feel a slight bit odd in telling you, you need to start from a circle with a Pentagon *cough* inscribed in it. You can find the directions for that right here.
