Paper Rose Tutorial....

Ooops! It took me a whole lot longer to get the paper rose tutorial done than I originally anticipated! Here are the steps by step instructions....

The base of the roses begin with a circle. In this case, I used a 2 in circle but you can adjust the size of the rose based on the size of the circle you use.

Using scissors cut around the circle in a swirl pattern.

Fold the outside edge from the beginning to the end.

Turn the circle over.

Begin twisting the edge of the paper inward making sure to keep the folded edge folded.

Adhere the bottom with a strong adhesive. I used Stampin' Up! sticky strip to secure mine.

I hope this helps! I suspect you could use these instructions with other kinds of paper and get the same results....crepe streamers, tissue paper and maybe even some fabrics.....

Have a good afternoon!
