One of a kind handmade rose =]
I say boutonniere in the title because I made it for my prom date, but this could easily be altered to make a corsage, or just any kind of decorative flower.

Also, I used sheet music (because it matches my dress quite well), but have fun with different colors and mediums =]

I was inspired to make this by the beauty of a natural rose in full bloom, and I googled many a photo, like the second one above, while making my more permanent version.

  • How to make a boutineer. Paper Rose Boutonniere - Step 1
    Step 1

    To start out, you'll need a bunch of kind of heart shaped pieces of paper. I used about 10.

    Note: for the first, innermost petal, skip all the curling around the knitting needle and wrap it directly around the stem.

    Wrap the petal around a floral tape wrapped wire stem, and secure it in place. I'm using duct tape in this photo, but floral tape and hot glue are good options too.

i know a similar method where i just draw a heart with a rectangle coming off the bottom which i cut down the middle and glue together after curling the top parts :P
using sheet music is an amazingly beautiful idea ^_^ nice how-to aswell
to lolly p. i use the inside of a pen to curl mine :P
