On our origami rose page, we list what each rose color symbolizes. Here we summarize what you might be saying by giving someone a rose.

Red roses say "I love you!". Yellow roses say "I value our friendship". White roses say "Our love is pure". Lavender roses say "It was love at first sight".

So choose your paper color wisely ;)

Other easy origami flowers to try are: easy origami tulip and easy origami sunflower.
