Hi, my name is Ana. I'm an art student and Origami expert, and today I'm going to show you how to make a rose with Origami. So, for this project you will need a square piece of paper; I usually recommend to have color on both sides, and glue. So, we're going to start by folding this triangle, by folding the paper in half. We're going to bring each of these corners to the middle point. Open them up, and let's have these two edges meet by folding in half. Perfect. Okay, we're going to do a petal fold by opening it up and using these two edges to squash, like that. Now, we're going to fold this to the back, going to open this layer, and have those two triangles hiding there. Now, we're going to fold this using the, those creases we have created, just like that. Okay, and now what we need to do, we're going to paste these two sides together. Okay, so for this you can use a little bit of tacky glue; any glue will do. And what you want to do now is repeat the process six times. You're going to create six of these petals. We're just going to use some glue to paste them together, using the sides. I'm going to do this really quick. And this is a great model to create a bouquet. You can make them in different colors. You can actually use a smaller size paper, create the same models we have created and put them in the sides. Well, and that's how you fold an Origami rose. Thank you for your time. See you next time.
