    Thanks so much for posting up the step-by-step instructions on the roses! I learned it when I was younger, but have forgotten. Your instructions are a great refresher and well detailed in comparison to what I’ve googled online This will make a great addition to a bouquet I’ll create with lillies, tissue paper flowers and money roses!

    Hi, I am a yoga teacher who wants to incorporate origami as form of meditation when I end my classes. I am interested in taking origami classes with you to learn some of the basic folds and origami models that are not too time consuming for this purpose. Can you be of assistance? I have been folding on my own a little-but I would like some guidance from someone who has a real understanding of this ancient art form.
