I love making paper flowers and roses are my favourite. I made these roses with red colour half inch strips.
The paper for the background is from my handmade paper pack. I liked the texture of the paper and roses was the first thing that came to my mind. As I finished this card , I was surprised I haven't filled up the entire card like I am used to . I liked this arrangement of roses and with this background I felt it best to keep it simple and with some difficulty I avoided scrolls .
For each flower cut a half inch wide strip in to quadrilaterals as shown.
Ten petals make a flower.
Take one piece of paper and cut on the narrow side of the quadrilateral as shown .
Curl the sides of the larger side on both ends with a needle.
Apply little glue on one half of the slit end.
Overlap and stick the slit ends one on top of the other .You have one petal.
Take a small circle of paper and stick the petal as shown
Stick five petals to form the outer circle of the petals.
Next stick the other five petal inside (or even four if you don't want it to be too crowded) and then roll a loose coil of the same colour with 5mm paper strip and stick it to the center of the rose.
Thanks for stopping by, have a creative day.
