Actually my first two origami Kawasaki roses. Kawasaki roses are quite famous in Origami circles, although I am sure there are more difficult roses to master. These were tough enough.

Not nearly as nice as the ones I see online, but passable I think.

These are really, really hard. Although the second one took me about 1/4 as long as the first one did. They are in reverse order, I did the red one first. The red one looks a little rough partly because I folded it inside out first without realizing it and had to refold it, which is always tough on the edges.
