Folding paper to make a rose is interesting. Fresh flowers can wither, so if you want a flower that lasts a long time and you want a new style, not just the plastic flowers, you may use an origami paper rose. Paper roses come in different styles. It is a 3D style of origami folding. You create paper roses for projects, stage decorations, props, as a toy, or anything that you would like to use it for.
