A bouquet of Kawasaki roses that I made for a wedding. I made small origami rosebuds to fill the centers of the big Kawasaki roses.

Hellow Zephyr :) I'll be honest, it took me a few *hours* to make my first rose!! I was pretty much a novice when I did these and I'm still no expert. The most important thing is to work slowly, be patient, and be as precise as possible.If you don't have origami paper, use printing paper while you're learning.

Ideally, when learning a new pattern, I like to find more than one YouTube video tutorial for the same model. I pause the video at each step and then make the fold, and if I can't see what's going on, I'll check that step in a different video.

When I learnt this rose pattern, I could only find *one* video and it was very low quality, so when I got stuck, I literally watched the same step over and over and tried different things until it worked.

{I hope this helps and isn't too long and boring. Let me know if you get it right! Any questions are welcome :)}

I love it! What type of Kawasaki rose are they though?

Thanks!:3 Uh, as far as I know, they're the original, traditional Kawasaki design, which can look a little different depending on how you shape them when you open them up in the final stage.
What I also did here, is add some small rose buds to the centers of some of the roses, to make them look fuller with more petals :]
Here's one of the Kawasaki tutorials that I used, but you can find better ones by now: [link]
And here's a tut for the rosebud: [link]

Wow, I can imagine. I didn't realize that was cardboard.

Actually, only the ones without detailed buds in the center of the roses are cardboard - - it was just too thick to make tiny buds for those ones :] but I had to fold quite a few bouquets d:
