I made these a while back (back in February to be exact) and I completely forgot how to make them until today.  I found the box of pieces/completed Rose Cubes and bases that I had made a long time ago.  The Rose Cubes are extremely easy to make, and they are great gifts!  This is my first craft post, so be nice!  I took all the photos on the piano cover my popo (chinese grandma) made for our piano.  I can post a tutorial on how to make them if anybody's interested.  They are super easy to make!



Some of the Rose Cubes that I made a little while back, and one that I made today.  I thought I forgot how to put them together, but I remembered!   Cheesy  I was so happy when I found out that I still remembered how to make them after making so many!  I also made the stars that are scattered around the Rose Cubes.



A closed Rose Cube.  This is one of the few white Rose Cubes that i've made.  It's one of my favorites.  Wink



An open Rose Cube.  I couldn't get the leaves to stay open.  Which is always the hardest part.  They look lovely open or closed though.



A base!  I chose this one for maximum contrast.

Update: it took me for freaking EVER to get these videos up!  The reason there's 5 and not just 2 (one for putting it together/opening and one for the base), is that my camera is BROKEN right now, and it wouldn't let my mom take the entire video.  Instead, it cut off after a while, so we had to update others.  You'll be addicted to making these soon!  I keep on making smaller and smaller ones!  The first small one I made was with paper that was about 5 cm a side.  Then I made one with paper 4 cm a side.  That one was TINY let me tell you!  I'd put pictures up, but my camera is currently getting repaired (thank goodness).  So bless my mom for helping me tape the video(s) and thank you to everybody who waited to patiently!  I uploaded the first video (and the most important) onto Google Video since YouTube wouldn't accept it (4 mb over 100mb...those bastards) and the rest on YouTube.

And now my work is done!  Cheesy I just noticed that my hands look super fat in the video.  Damn.  Oh well.  If you make a Rose Cube, post it up and let me see!  Grin

Yes, tutorial please!  I'm not quite sure I understand what I'm looking at - are they "transformers", like they're a box that turns into a rose?

Oh, I would love a tutorial too! I already know how to make the paper stars *points to avatar*, and would love to make some of the flowers for my BF (I made the stars for him too, but he didnt know what to do with them so they sit in a cute bottle/bank thing here at my desk).
