Paper Rose Tutorial~

I've had so many request for a tutorial on making these roses, so here you go! First, take a package of standard coffee filters...coffee stain them...I put the whole stack in a large bowl,pour hot coffee over all..Take apart and dry..I hang mine on a clothes line or you can heat your oven,TURN OFF and let them dry in there. Once they are dried,cut in half...then,cut in half again...making four pieces out of one filter. Next, trim edges of each, forming a petal. Take an old hymnal or any sheet music..using the petal from the coffee filter, cut several music petals....
Now, take a full page from the hymnal,roll from top of page to bottom forming a cigar shaped center bud...take a coffee filter petal...wrap around the bud,encasing it, add another,after about 5 or 6 more add a music petal, repeat, it will begin to tell you where it needs which...it also helps to crimp the bottom, this helps hold it all in place....

When it's as big as you'd like,wrap string or any type ribbon, pulling tightly. After it's secured, take your finger and gently circle around each petal separating and fluffing...I drizzle a little thin glue down between the petal to secure it a wee bit more. You can then dip in dye to add color if you like...I kinda like the natural color!




Thank you all so much for visiting my blog!!! Have a Very Blessed Week!

  18. Thank you for sharing a tutorial for your gorgeous roses, Ann. I just wish we had such kind of coffee filters over here. There seem to be so many great ways to use them in crafts. Maybe I'll try crepe paper instead.
