I Played around a little bit and tried to fold some ideas I had through the “Octagons for October”-Challenge as hexagons, instead of octagons. Sadly it’s not so clean folded. The paper (darkred Tant, Hexagon out of a square(35x35cm), Grid 1:64) wasn’t the best choice and I was very confused while trying to shape it. Next time I’ll use EH.


Hexagonal Rose

My Hexagonal Rose is finished ūüėÄ

I changed the closing of the base, now it’s a little bit rounder and it looks more like the Kawasaki Rose.

Hexagonale Rose Backlight Hexagonale Rose CP
Hexagonale Rose Description 1a-2a First you need a 1:64 trigonal grid and a hexagonal Twist which is shiffted (don’t know if it’s the right word for it) about 90¬į against the grid. The hexagon will be at the inside.

1a + b Then you’ve to fold the creases as shown.
1b The inside of the rose

2a +b These little creases helps to shape the rose
2a the Outside of the rose

Hexagonale Rose Description 3a-4 3a This is an auxiliary crease, for the next step
3b + c It’s a link to stiffen the rose

4 Fold the flaps inside the pocket which results from step 3

Hexagonale Rose Description 5a-6 5a Now begin to close the base
5b Insert the flap into the pocket
5c The finished base

6 The finished rose, now the shapping begins

Hexagonal Rose Beta-Version

Finally I closed the bottom of my hexagonal rose. It’s not perfect at all, that’s why I call it Beta-Version.

I had to restrain the bottom of the rose with some wet towel and strings, but it’s not really flowerlike rotund.

At the end it’s only a variation of the New Kawasaki Rose, based on a trigonal Grid.

Cp and a better version of the Rose will follow ^-^

Hexagonal Rose Beta-Version

Hexagonal Kawasaki Rose

In progress ^.^

Some time ago I had the idea to fold a hexagonal Kawasaki Rose. This is the first try. I Think it can easily be done, but at this try I had not enough pleats to close the bottom of the rose.

As I began to write my examination paper i had lots of ideas, which I began to realize, but not finished, this rose is one of them ^.^ But I will finish it soon
