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.

Instructions

  1. How to make a paper brooch. Paper Rose Boutonniere - Step 1 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.

  2. How to make a paper brooch. Paper Rose Boutonniere - Step 2 2

    Curl the tips around a knitting needle

  3. How to make a paper brooch. Paper Rose Boutonniere - Step 3 3

    And wrap it lengthwise across the needle to form a valley




  4. How to make a paper brooch. Paper Rose Boutonniere - Step 4 4

    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.

  5. How to make a paper brooch. Paper Rose Boutonniere - Step 5 5

    Ta-da! There you have it-- your one of a kind handmade rose =]

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 Tongue
