In this first part, I explain how to change your regular sheet of paper into a square and then the Origami Rose Base. The base is then converted to the Rose in Part 2 of my tutorial. This is a great paper model for Mother's Day or any other time you'd like to show your appreciation towards someone you care about. :-)
If you are using origami paper, which has a colored side and a white side, then you want to start the folding with the colored side facing upwards.
