The Rose

Hi all we had our last training day for 09 and I would like to share with you one of the many things we made on the day. Flower are something we love to give any time of the year but a hand made one is something you can keep for ever. I have always enjoyed making flowers and would love to share this with you all thanks for stopping by today have fun.

Step 1 You will need to punch out 18 Large Ovals in Real red card stock (Or what ever color Rose you would like)
Step 2 Soften the first oval between your fingers a little - this will make it easier to roll
Step 3 Place a piece of stick strip then roll the oval around on itself.
Step 4 Place a piece of sticky strip just below center on each of the ovals. As in Photo below.

Step 5 Stick the next oval to the first , rolled one in the photo above.
Step 6 Roll it around .
Step 7 Continue adding each of the ovals one at a time as in photo below.

Step 8 Using the wide oval punch and the old olive card punch out four this is for your leaves

keep placing all the real red ovals and shaping as you go as in the photo above and below

Step 9 Run the wide old olive oval through the Crimper then fold in half length ways.

as in the photos above and below

Step 10 Attach leaves to the rose with sticky strip one at a time

as in the photo above then add the next one

and so on until you have all four leaves on

it should look like this from the top as in the photo above and below

Step 10 Attach stick strip to the top of the stick and push into the bottom of the rose

Step11 To make the stem wrap sticky strip first around the bottom of the rose and down the stick as in photo above and below

Step 12 Next warp the ribbon around the bottom of the rose first then keep it going down the stick.

As in the photo above and below

Step 13 Cut four 21cm of ribbon to make loops using stick strip to hold into place as in the photo below

Place loops around the rose I did four you can do as many as you wont

Step 14 turn the rose upside down then tie more ribbon around and tie into a bow
as in the photo above and below

Step 15 Using a square piece of DSP and cut to 7.5 x 7.5 cm make a cone and leave it open just the right amount at the top for the amount of the rose you want to see as in photo below

If you wont the stem to hang out at the bottom use a 6 x 6' square and roll into a cone
place your rose into you cone and tie ribbon around it you can add a tag.
If you would like to attend my rose class on the 10th February 2010 times 1pm -3pm or 7pm - 9pm or would like to see more classes go to
