Paper Roses

neko_san once showed me a whole paper bag filled with origami roses. Beautiful things. And she told me about the book she'd learned the model from: Roses, Origami, and Math by Toshikazu Kawasaki.

I got it for Christmas. And I've tried it out, both the bud and the full-blown flower head. I guess my visual/mathematical brain wanted a little bit of a workout taking things from the 2-D representations in the book to 3-D models. And I have to admit that I think the instructions lacked a certain something. *laughs* But I got it, so... can't say too much bad about 'em.
