    draw a spiral on the paper. for this rose i drew a very large spiral. but you can make whatever size you want. the bigger the spiral, the longer it takes to roll it up and the longer you have to hold onto it.

    start cutting! once you get to the middle, try to leave that little rounded part, don't cut it. you'll need that later. don't worry about following the pencil marks or erasing the pencil either.

    this is when you use that little rounded nub at the end of the spiral. push up the nub and grab your glue gun (that should already be hot) and fill the hole with hot glue. put the nub over the hole, kind of like a cap. then (because the glue is very hot) flip it over on a table and press the very middle of the rose, the center, into the hot glue and hold. i messed up the first three that i made until i got the hang of it.
