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.

CrayfishYAY (author)freakyqwerty2013-02-12

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

hushy (author)freakyqwerty2010-12-08

.
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...)

Ok, thanks!

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)?

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

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!

Nice instructable!
I think some1 already posted one like this, but with video steps. These steps are easy to read, though it would be better to see the folds. Where did this originate? Recent or old?

No idea pal. I learned this from my roommate who is an occupational therapist. I think it's one of the activities they teach their patients to enhance fine motor skills.

this is amazing, Thank you very much!

This is great - in cube form, it's a super-minimalist representation of a rose & once you pinch it open, it looks like a wonderful stylized rose!

You invented this origami?

author
hushy (author)Closet_RAt2010-12-02

.
Thank you Closet_Rat!

No, I did not.
I learned this origami from my friend who is an occupational therapist. I think this is one of the fine motor activity exercises for patients.

:-D

I'm afraid so.
My English needs improvement. It's always a struggle to express myself as my vocabulary and grammar suck! :-D
