How to fold the Origami Rose


How to fold the Origami Rose by Toshikazu Kawasaki

Toshikazu Kawasaki, an math teacher and origami designer in Japan, invented the The Kawasaki Rose. This model is actually a family of origami rose designs, all based on a unique curling technique that creates the illusion of overlapping rose petals.

It’s a challenging origami design, but well worth it to fold. Our step by step photos will guide you through. The designer of this rose is Toshikazu Kawasaki and the model was shown in a book, “Roses, Origami & Math (Hardcover)”.

The steps are complicated a bit. Level: Advance. If you are an origami beginner, I do not recommend you to start working on this rose. Please start with “standard rose” first and next with plain “Kawasaki’s rose”. Then you will be ready for this rose.

You may use any kind of paper to fold the Kawasaki rose flower. It is recommended to use a paper with the same color and texture for both front and back sides. The reason is that a part of back side will be shown in the final model. Make sure the paper that you use is a square (all sides are equal and all the angles equal 90 degrees). The paper I am using here is 20cm x 20cm

The original Kawasaki roses are (1) Full-bloom Kawasaki Rose, (2) Budding Kawasaki Rose, and (3) New Kawasaki Rose (or Angled Kawasaki Rose). The rest of them are modified versions of Kawasaki roses.
