This video describes how to fold a fantastic origami rose brooch designed by Sy Chen. The design is based on the rose brooch designed by Toshie Takahama, Sy's version includes a color-change for the leaves.
The brooch is the perfect present for that special someone - your girlfriend, best friend, mother, daughter - or anyone that loves wearing flower brooches! Maybe even yourself? :)
The great thing about giving someone else origami as a gift is that it shows you care and spent time to make something for them yourself. This makes it a wonderful token for that next Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, birthday or everyday thank you - and you just need a piece of paper for it! And, if you want to make an actual brooch out of it, a lapel pin or something similar.
Sy Chen kindly gave me permission to make this video accessible to you.
