Paper roses

The full blown rose and 2 rosebude are done the same way as the rose below

Paper rose

I tried to make a rose using grunge paper but I just did not work for me so I decided to try with plain old pearlized paper I used a cocktail stick to start and then I folded the paper so that I had lots of layers then free hand cut the shape of a petal The first one I curled round my cocktail stick then I glued all the rest of them on one at a time shaping as I went along and gluing then all together lastly I tinted the petals with metallic rub on and cut the remaining stick of I think it came out OK
