Step 6: Trapezoids?

Ok, this step isn't hard, though if you learn it through pictures it may be a bit confusing. I'll try my best.

First, turn the origami around so you can't see the square in the center.

Then, if you pull back one of the flaps, you'll see a crease going from a corner down. You will have to pop up this crease. The images may be sort of helpful for this.

Simply put a finger beneath the paper, right under the crease, and push upwards.

Reinforce the marked creases so the figure looks more 3D.

Do this to all four corners.
<p>This was very difficult and I had to rely on the video a lot, but finally I pulled through! :)</p>
<p>These instructions worked really well for me Thank you!!</p>
Very confusing .. The pictures have been clicked in too close up .. The instrutlctions are anywaus confusing.. I'm STUCK BIG TIME!!
<p>Thanks for the instructions! Definitely recommend to others to use the slower video here: <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/Bq0WKQZMnt8" width="500"></iframe></p><p>Think I'll use thinner paper next time... beginner's error! Enjoyed how it turned out anyway though.</p>
Stuck at 7..<br>You should take the picture of the whole paper of each step..<br>this just killed my mood..<br>aaaaaaarghh :p
Thanks anyways it was cool<br>
Grrrr! Confusing. The steps and pictures not going together flip my brain out. There's random pics then instructions way later. Im stuck all the way at the pics on step 4 :'c im usually good at origami.
thanks for giving us the video link....<br>
<p>iv watched videos that are too quick to follow. And I can't make sense of the photos, there too close. I'm sooo close to finishing but I can't work out which triangles and which &quot;trapezoid things&quot; to fold... Help me :(</p>
Grrr I'm stuck on step 6
<p>grr! really confused about the twist thing then guess what??? my paper broke :( back to easy origami for me I think...</p>
thanx to instructable ....
Cool!!! <br> <br>I misread the title, I thought it said &quot;Origami Nose&quot;
Called the Kawasaki Twist I think. It's pretty cool!
You are correct, this is a simplified instruction for the kawasaki rose, second version I believe. Looking through these instructables on origami I find myself disappointed that many of these folders do not feel the need to acknowledge the original designer of the work they are showing, especially when entering contests........
*says* I've had enough (in an agitated voice) <br />finds sister at room door <br />*glares at sister* <br />sister screams and runs away <br /> <br /> <br />looks back at screen then at paper. <br />Finds out I did it right.. 0_o
i only made this by the power of listening to dubstep/techno while folding<br>
i made this :) fun to make, 5 stars<br><br>my tip:when collapsing the triangles, slightly crimp the collapsed triangle so it doesn't unfold
i got so pissed that i ripped my paper and quit :L<br>
This is a wonderful instructable, though I did first learn how to make this version through the slowed down video. It's nice to have text and pictures that you don't have to keep pausing :)
i used the vid and i ended up wit a crumbled peice of paper
This was the first origami rose that I have ever been able to complete. xD
Well I am lost here. You can't just tell us to follow the pictures, because the pictures are too close and do no justice. I'm gone. Please do wider pictures with much better written instructions;<em> where </em>to fold, not just &quot;fold small triangles&quot;.
Sorry. There's a link to a video tutorial in the last step, and the video should clear up most questions. :)
Yeah this picture doesn't really show where you're folding. You could probably take the photo from a wider angle and it be better.
Even though I did this instructable a LOOONNG time ago, but I received several comments where people got stuck at one point, so<strong> I will post a video</strong> soon&nbsp;showing the steps up close (the video I included originally was deleted by its uploader....)
i dont get it from here...im lost help
use the same terms every time you use a step thats the same.eg. &quot;turn over&quot; (means pick it all up and completely turn over and start working on the other side of the paper) rather than turn around [as used in step 6]which could mean something else
you lost me! <br />
&nbsp;Hiya.. Have to agree with Migliore.. Spent some time this afternoon with these particular instructions melting my head.. The instructions and the photographs don't seem to correspond, perhaps wider images would sort this out.. Another suggestion might be to number each square on the 8x8 grid just for the photos, as sometimes when u spoke about triangles and squares I couldn't see them or figure out which ones or where you were talking about... Found this video link which is fairly easy to follow, you might find useful inspiration. All the best. O<br /> <br /> www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpCN8_M5RAQ<br />
i dont understand *_*<br />
you lost me here (step 7)&nbsp; I fold a lot but the directions for this step didn't make sense to me. more pictures, a wide shot maybe would help<br />
I posted a video...the person who made the video did that stepdifferently than what I did, and I personally thought her way needed abit more practice to get just right, but it will probably help xD
These instructions are the first I am able the fully understand. All the other ones did not have enough pictures, or the instructions weren't descriptive enough. I had a little trouble understanding step 7, though. Good work.
thank you :)<br />That means a lot to me...since I&nbsp;usually suck at explaining
is there a Vid 4 this step?? i really like this rose bettter than the Rose Bouque Tut. if there is a vid i want a vid 4 this particular rose.
I'll try to make one as soon as I have the time for it :]
ok i got this part too!
geez! this is ther hardest part! but ill get it
If it helps, I think there's a vid on Youtube that teaches this part :)
