Snow days mean....

getting crafty and creative inside in the warm!
Today I wanted to create a little tutorial to show you how to make paper roses....
Now I have made them using the big bloomer flowers from Do Crafts, but you could use any size of flowers and any type of flowers.
I can now imagine 10000s of little roses been made across the country! lol Get those punches and big bloomers out and let me see what you create!

 These are the 3 flowers that I am using to create my rose.
 For the rose middle, take one flower (white side up) and fold up the petals as shown in the photo.
 Fix this into pace on the next flower (this time pattern side up).
 Start to fold the petals up.
 Glue this into position on the final flower.
 Again mould the petals to create the shape of rose that you want.
Hey presto!
You can use this technique to make any size of flower - look out all those little flower punches that you have and get creative!

Happy crafting
