Any tips on how to make roses?

Post by Wendakai on 2011-02-14, 20:30

Hey everybody! Happy Valentine's Day! So on my Valentines, I just did really simple bloomer type roses. They were fun, but I'm trying now to make the folded paper ones... you know, that you use 1/2" paper to make. I'm all fumble-fingered. Any tips? Thanks!

Thanks Paula, I think you're right, practice and patience, and also wider paper than what I was using. Thought I had hold of the widest I had, but I found some 3/8 inch. Still not 1/2 but closer than what I was struggling with. They're comin' along. Smile
Thanks KrazeeLdy! Forgot about those, but I think I'm ok. I'm on dial-up, so videos take awhile to download. My roses are lookin' better with each one. Smile

That's fine...there are still "written" instructions too...whatever...if you're doing well with them.

I love spiral roses for their simplicity

Me too Bronwyn, I have left a spiral roses pattern in the patterns page that you can print straight off. I also love to do my folded roses with crepe paper. For some reason the paper has a slightly more flexible fibre and sits really well. They look so natural

Thanks everybody. Will check everything out and will post the picture I'm working on when it's done. It won't be anything spectacular... just perdiful. Smile
