Graduation gift: so easy & complicated

Well, my lack of focusing on a single idea has landed me with a brilliant idea on a graduation gift for Justin.

Origami flowers, in meaningful colors and types of flowers.

Flowers that mean friendship, also going to add some in his favorite color, and some in our college colors.

I have just attempted to make some origami flower, and I couldn't get past step 4.

I also cannot figure out how to unfold what I just folded.

This may not turn out well.

Then, I'll have to get a vase, and I'll fill the vase with candies that he likes.

The flowers may not look like flowers when I'm done, but I've shared this idea with Jess and she thinks he'll love and appreciate the thought I'm putting into this.

    This is a great idea… I made a lot of Origami flowers for a gift once and it was well liked… some are really easy to fold, there are great videos on youtube which explain how to fold Origami… you might want to start with something simple, that doesn’t need too much folding… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZN61wv6VRP8 this is the lily, I think it is one of the easiest flowers …. the daisy is a bit more difficult http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-gngL44Tqg

      I’ve tried a few by look at diagrams on websites and failed horribly lol, I think I did some stuff backwards when I tried a lily because i couldn’t get it to open. And i just can’t figure out how to do some of the stuff so if i’m going to do the origami I will need videos to learn lol. Thank you for those 2 videos. For now, I’m doing a bouquet of ribbon roses. yellow for friendship, and then orange which is his favorite color, and white & green for our college colors. These ribbon roses are beautiful and he’ll love how pretty they are.

        Intereting what dows a ribbon rose look like? What material are they made of? -- Indeed videos are the best way to learn origami mostly because you can rewind and rewind and rewind that helps loads

          You need a wire edged ribbon, measure out a yard of it, and then on one side of the ribbon, you pull the wire and bunch up the ribbon then loop it around in a circle and use a hot glue gun to glue it. I’ll post a photo of one.
