I'm going to give this to my boyfriend.

how do you do the green ones

really wow i have gifted this to my granyyyyy

I't looks great but do you have to use two sided coloured paper?
Also how big would it be if I used post-it notes?
Thanks in advance.

You must use construction paper for this!!!! Trust me. I'm an origami master.

.
You may use one-sided colored paper. Start off with the wrong side facing up. But the white side of the paper would show between the gaps.
Post-it notes can be utilized.
The smaller the paper being used, the higher is the difficulty level.

My pleasure. :-D

Two-sided color paper could be used. I used several types of paper that made it turn out well (but not really like a rose...)

I'm giving this to my girlfriend for Valentine's Day. I just made it & I am putting in a surprise for her. When I present it to her, I'm going to do the normal opening. But next, I'm gonna tell her to put her hands out to where it makes a bowl. Then I'm gonna tilt it upside down, pinch the green part, then out will come a Belgian Seashell. A Belgian Seashell is this chocolate shell w/ chocolate hazelnut filling inside. So, what do you think of this? Is it (insert positive word here) or (insert negative word here)?

verrrrrrrrry niiiiiiiiice on ly needs a littel improvement

Please make the instructions in the yellow boxes clearer. It is a little difficult understanding what you mean.

Cool I tottaly agree♫

Alittle hard to follow, but combined with another video instructable it worked perfect. Video was unclear, this one was great, this one was unclear video helped out!

I made one for a special someone, takes it everywhere with her! She live it!

I'm not sure why we had to fold in and out the leaves so many times but I just wanted to say I DID IT! :)

Thanks for sharing. Succeeded making it in my first attempt ;) and i must say, it luks simply pretty.

so... where is the 'yellow' box we're supposed to mouse over?

Thanks for the pretty flower! My first attempt at origami, and it worked so i guess it's a clear enough set of instructions!
