I made this paper rose out of old magazine pages. It turned out beautiful.

I used magazine pages to cut out rose pedal-like shapes, then I curled the tips with the edge of the scissors, and a like glue to keep the pedals in place. Pretty easy and really fun to make!

Aw...thanks! :D
It isn't exactly origami because it involves cutting and shaping sereval sheets of paper. But I made it with old magazine pages so I was turning "trash" to art! You should try it too! :D

Thank you! You could easily learn how to make one. Just observe the pattern and shape of a rose, fold the paper twice, then diagonally, and stetch half of a petal. After that, cut the pattern out, but leaving the pointed end connected, so then you would have four petals for each layer.

It wasn't hard to make at all. You just have to work with one layer of the rose at a time and curl the edges to give it a nice look. Working with magazine pages is easier than copy paper because it is thinner, so it is easier to curl the edges.
