How to fold an Origami Magic Rose Cube

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

Just found this, and believe some here would probably like it as well:

The page linked to on the Instructables site doesn't seem to give any credit. I'm at work now and can't view the video, so I don't know if the creator's name is mentioned, but for the record the official instructions for Valerie Vann's Magic Rose Cube are available on DVD here:

Hello Edwin:
Thankfully, when you play the 1st video clip, the titles say "How to Make a Magic Rose Cube (The Valerie Vann Thingy)"

Back at home and I can see the video now. I should have waited before posting but wanted to mention the credit while the thread was still alive. Valerie Vann was not happy when unauthorised diagrams (instructions) for her Rose Cube started appearing when the model first came out a few years ago. Not sure if the online video is "authorised", but at least they give her name.

Anyway, thanks for posting the link. It's a great model.
