Camelia for the memory of Toyoaki Kawai origami sensei. This flower was born by accident: I wanted to fold the Kawai camelia by heart – and at the very beginning I lost the way. Sooo – I tried my best to create something “cameliaish”…

The best friend, the Rose of the Little Princess. Soon I shall upload the full set – it was published many years ago in our origami magazin. Now I plan to refresh it and make color diagrams.

Flower origami or origami flower: to get it, to make it, means fun, and happiness. Flower origami is different from artifical paper flowers, or flowers made from silk, nlyon, waxed paper – these flowers made by the ancient art of origami are much more than a simple copy of the real plant. Origami has rules, and to say the truth, the result usually has a hint of geometry, because of the straight folding lines, edges. Flower origami makes it more smooth, curved, gentle.

The Yellow Rose, above, is a so-called new-traditional model. Its origin is back to the “Smoky Rose”, a silver or golden little jewel, which was already wellknown in the second World War. The hard-boxed cigarettes like Marlborough had a box lining, a silver or gold thin paper, a long rectangle. This paper was cut for pieces, and a complete flower with stem and leaves was folded from it. An elderly lady from Sicilia told that she got a flower like this from young US soldier, when she was a child during the War. Flower origami stepped over the language barrier and made a child glad.

Jan Polish, dear friend of mine, told that she learned this Yellow Rose from a group of elderly Vietnemese ladies with whom she  came together to fold and share paperfolding traditions.

Flower Origami: Hyacint is a very good example, how easy to fold an attractive greeting-card decoration if we have a little time, and some pieces of colored paper – even used solid gift-wrapping paper leftover can work. This flower origami model is easy to fold with children because of the several but very simple pieces: sitting around the table, folding the little flowers, the whole family can make an unforgottable greeting card fo a loved one.

Using only one basic fold – the ice-cone fold here – a decorative wall-picture can be created, in a rainy afternoon. Flower origami can be as simple as it is, and the result is stunning.

This fluffy rose, flower origami, sitting in a handful of wrapping paper nest, was the logo of the 15th Origami convention of the Hungarian Origami society, many years ago. Flower origami can be plain and simple, flat, useful for making greeting cards. Also flower origami can be 3D, a colorful pretty decoration, in a vase or just on the shelf to bring some color in cold and grey winter days.
