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. 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. Step 2 2

    Curl the tips around a knitting needle

  3. Step 3 3

    And wrap it lengthwise across the needle to form a valley




  4. 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. Step 5 5

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