Origami Rose in a Vase




Valentine's Day was especially creative this year, and I came up with a rose vase that makes an easy,
yet elegant gift for anyone.

Roses received on Valentine's Day don't last very long, but these paper roses (if kept out
of reach of kids) will be here for a long, long time. When finished, a light spritz of perfume
can make the scent really fresh.

Each vase and flower can be made differently, so that each one is unique and special.
At the end of this instructable, I put in a few other rose vases that I made.

Step 1: Making the Vase: Building the Pieces

Follow the pictures and read the little notes on them to make it easier.
You end up making around 140 of these pieces and then assemble
them together to form the vase.

Step 2: Putting the Pieces Together

Follow the pictures to put the vase together.
For this step, you will end up making 3 complete rows
with 20-25 pieces (I had 23) in each row.

Step 3: Creating the Sides

Step 4: Finishing the Vase

Complete the vase by finishing the two walls and bending it to a heart-shaped center.

Glue (from a hot glue gun) might need to be used if the pieces fall apart or aren't tight,
but were not needed in this project.

Step 5: Creating the Rose

Using the picture, cut out an approximate shape. The rose is made by

Step 6: Finishing the Rose

Simply gluing the wire to the rose (and vase, if needed) will complete this project!

Included in this step are variations I made of this rose vase.
Keep this project in mind next year if you are thinking about making
something really creative and unique for that special someone!
