Does anyone have any sort of trick to fold Kawasaki roses quickly? It seems to take me at least 45 minutes to an hour just to fold one, and I need to make a lot for my sister's wedding. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

How about folding one minute Kawasaki roses?

Thank you for the reply. I showed my sister, but she said they were too boxy for her liking

I remember that Mark Leonard had a simplified CP for folding the Kawasaki rose. I googled it but could not find his page.

What I suggest is you fold one rose then unfold it and then figure out the basic creases that you will need to fold the rose. I remember them being quite less than in the model folded from the diagram.

Then you could fold the roses from the basic pattern or make yourself a template so that you don't have to pre crease anything but just collapse and shape.

I know only one rose that doesn't involve a grid, but it can be done quickly and looks really nice. Can't recall who designed it, but picked it up form a Youtube video.

I like this one from Youtube. It is in Masahiro Ichikawa's Only One Rose series. I think this is the fastest.
