So since June is "Rose Month" I made another rose out of recycled paper and stuck it on top of my name tag at work. I spray painted the paper with Krylon paint. Drew a spiral and cut it out. Then I used a Woodcraft painters pen and smudged the edges a bit. I then used scissors to curl the edges twisted it into shape and used the hot glue gun to keep it together. I then cut some leaves from more recycled paper and glued the rose on top of them. A bit of double sided sticky tape and voila I changed my name to "Rose" today!
Here are some lovely tutorials for paper roses I found. I definitely have to try out some more of these.
This next one is a You Tube tutorial for a Spiral Paper Rose. I just watched it and noticed they rolled the flower in the opposite direction I did and used the round center as the bottom of the rose which is a great idea. I just glued mine on top of the leaves which worked just as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiB3soNy4e8

I don't know about you but my head is spinning with ideas on things to make with these beauties!
