How to Fold a portion of a 3D origami kusudama rose
Use double sided paper, 12-30 parts. Six parts is too small and you can't see the form of the rose. Fold in half. Fold in half again. Fold the bottom tip to the first line and rotate. Repeat with other tip. Do your right side because that's how you attach the units. Be careful not to rip or wrinkle the paper. Fold corner under. Rotate. Fold opposite corner across. Fold down and crease. Repeat on opposite side. Should have two pointed edges. Fold each edge down to form a diamond.
