The calyx and leaves are interlocked into the stem; and the calyx itself locks into the rose by incorporating a spearhead-shaped insertion-tip.

Hello, I'm triying to learn how to fold Phu Tran's rose or finding someone who could teach me how to fold ... if you can help me in anyway, please write me at juanjo(dot)vega(a)gmail.com

Thanks by advance and congratulations for your blog.
