A 4 x4 inch sheet of light weight paper (cardstock is too heavy but can be done)
Stickles to match your paper
Next you want to cut out roughly a 4x4 inch piece of paper you want to use to make the rose. What's relaly great about this project is you can use scraps
Draw a spiral on it and cut out in a wavy pattern
Once you have the spiral cut out you can ink the edges for definition. You can use just about any brand of ink you'd like.
Starting with the outter end, start rolling the paper around toward the middle
Once you get get close to the end add a big drop of glue on the bottom, I used tacky glue as opposed to glue dots or any tape ahesive, because the glue allows the paper to move. Adhere the rolled part of the flower to the center of the spiral and gently allow the flower to unfold to your liking.
I let the flower set for about 2-3 minutes and I add a couple of spritz of ::glimmer mist:: and line the edges with ::stickles:: (two of my favorite products) I've also thought about adding ::glossy accents:: to immitate dew drops.
To ahere the rose to my LOs I add a large ::glue dots:: to the bottom
Thanks for looking!
