Rosebud and calyx kusudama

(Repost from Atelier Ilyere)

I’m part of a group on Facebook called “Origami Kids” (the group is open so anyone can view it) where people post their creations and/or tutorials on a regular basis. Quite a while ago, I came across a post about a rosebud and calyx tutorial (the tutorial creator and the person who designed the model can be found following this link) which teaches how to make a single unit, as well as how to stick units together.

I had to spend most of my time cutting the sizes of squares required before I could make a start. The tutorial is super easy to follow, making units will be no problem!

P1010453Assembly is by sticking sides of calyxes together. The tutorial does suggest using 14 units total, but I couldn’t make the model work like that. Instead, I improvised and made a kusudama using 12. Stringing it up is fairly easy too.

P1010454Materials: 12 4in squares of green paper, 12 3in squares of pink paper, PVA glue, coloured twine

Magic rose cube

I made this red and green cube out of six interlocking units. It’s really easy to make, especially if you’ve done modular origami before. It looks like any ordinary cube, right?

Well, something interesting happens when you pull out the triangular-shaped parts of the three red faces!

P1000477The cube transforms into a rose! This is a very easy modular to make since you will fold the units in no time. ^_^

Materials: Three of each red and green 14cm squares of paper

Origami rose pen

I’ve made my fair share of roses before. I would make various flowers, then tape then to wire stems and wrap with green tape. But have you ever thought you could make a rose more that just a pretty decoration?

In this version, I took a pen and wrapped it with green paper. I then attached a Kawasaki rose to a calyx and glued it to the top of the stem. I also added a simple leaf. And thus you have a pretty rose pen! If you wanted to, you could make a stem by using the ink container inside the pen instead. The stem would look more natural as it is quite thin, but it becomes sort of hard to write with.

P1000444Materials: 14cm square of red paper, three x 7cm squares of green paper, scissors, PVA glue or equivalent, pen
