Springtime Crepe Paper Rose Tutorial

I have shared this tutorial on a couple blogs in the past but never here on mine.  I have received quite a few WONDERFULLY SWEET comments on them, so I thought it was the perfect time to share it here.  Spring is here, well it’s here for us in PHX, and these pretty ‘lil roses are quite easy to make.

Roll the top and secure it with a dab of glue.
Start loosely winding the paper around the middle and fold it over as you go.
It will start to look like this.
I did a swipe of glue every few times around.
Remember to roll loosely and fold over as you go.
VOILA! You have a sweet lil paper crepe rose.
While I was making these, Alie handed me this one and said “look mama a fower (flower)” She made this one for me.  I have put it somewhere safe so that I can treasure it for years to come. 🙂

Do you know Marty with A Stroll Thru Life?  I totally adore her.  I really REALLY want to join her Spring Cloche Party but I don’t have anything “Spring-ish” to place in my cloche yet.  So I thought I would showcase my crepe paper roses.  This way I could join her party.  I hope you will too!

I would LOVE to know what you think of my tutorial.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
