Hello!!... I fancied doing something different on here today so I put together this pictorial step-by-step guide for you..
HOW TO MAKE A ROLLED ROSE..
Step 1: Start by punching out lots of squares from your choice of cardstock or paper - I used the 1 3/8" Stampin up punch - you'll need around 20 squares..
Step 2: Fold the top right corner of the square down towards the bottom left. leaving a small lip..
Step 3: Fold the top left corner down towards the bottom right, lining it up at the bottom with the first fold - so now you have the lip just along the bottom..
Step 4: Repeat with all 20 squares..
Step 5: Curl each one by wrapping around a pencil..
Step 6: Roll one of you petals completely around itself & glue into place..
Step 7: Roll a second petal around the first one & glue into place - you only need to add glue along the bottom lip..
Step 8: Continue rolling petals around the outside, gluing each one as you go - here's what it will look like from above..
Step 9: Continue rolling & gluing petals around the outside - again & again..
..& again & again..
..& again & again! until you've used up all 20 of your petals..
Step 10: wait for the glue to dry completely & then carefully bend down the tips of the petals with your fingers.. & add leaves if you desire..
Step 11: Sit back, have a cuppa & be very proud of your gorgeous rose!!!! :)
