{Tutorial} Paper Rose - Tutorial and Downloads!

It's finally here! Thank you all for all your patience, I made you wait longer than I wanted to, but I really wanted this to be just perfect.

How to Make

Materials Needed
2 pieces of cardstock in the color of the petals that you'd like
1 piece of cardstock in green for the leaves
1 straw (you can also use floral wire)
floral tape
Floral pin
Hot glue gun and glue
scissors to cut out template
Sponge (seriously!)

How to Make
1) Print out templates and cut out all petals (or use .studio files to cut with Silhouette)
2) Take the squiggly shaped petal (it looks like a dinosaur without legs) and glue like this:

3) starting at the side with the flat piece, start rolling the piece in on itself.

4) When you're finished rolling, glue the end down so that it looks like this:

5) Cut a small piece off your sponge and glue it to the top of your floral pin. I did this because it created a greater surface area for the pin head, and it ended up being more steady when glued in place within the center flower bud.

6) Add some glue to the outside of your pin and stick it in the bottom of your newly formed bud like this:

7) Now you start putting on the petals. Put some glue on the underside of your center bud and slide on the smallest bud. Curl under the sides of the petals. I use a straw to do this part, like this:

8) Start gluing each petal to the center bud, being sure to glue only one bud at a time. I put the glue on each petals like this:

9) When you've glued each of the three petals on the first set of petals, slide on the second petals, remembering to add some glue to the underside of the completed bud so that the next petal stays put. Repeat step 8 for each of the remaining petals. When all 6 petals are attached, it should look like this:

10) Cut off another small piece of your sponge and stick it in one end of the straw. I did this so that when I stuck the end of the pin with the flower on it in the straw, it didn't flop around but was held securely in place by the sponge.

11) Wrap the straw in the floral tape.

12) Add on the spiky petal to the head of the straw and then stick the head of the pin (the one the flower is now on) into the straw, being sure not to push the sponge down, but to push the pin through the sponge. Glue the base of each petal "spike" to the rose and add a drop of glue to the end of the straw to secure the rose bud to it.

13) Flip the flower over and add to a vase!!
